Ubuntu :: Firefox Crashes Immediately Before Loading Any Website / Resolve This?

Mar 18, 2010

I'm Dual-booting XP with Ubuntu Karmic Koala, heres my other specs:

CPU: Intel Pentium D 3.0Ghz family(15) model(4) stepping(4)
GFX: Geforce 7800 GT (had problems with GFX when I first installed Ubuntu, I had to update my drivers)

This is a nearly fresh install of Karmic Koala, I've only installed whatever updates I needed, graphics card drivers, KPlayer, and Google Chrome. Because I prefer Chrome over Firefox I immediately went to download Chrome, and Firefox would get to the Chrome page and then crash. I then got the Chrome install file from another computer and installed it. Chrome will not even launch, so I go to search the problem in Firefox and it crashes on ANY link I click in Google Search. I also tried to directly type websites into the URL box: it loads the pages title (Ex. "Yahoo! Mail"), and crashes before displaying the page at all.

This is a very odd problem to me as I used the same disc to install dual-boot with Win7 and Ubuntu on my laptop which works perfectly, and now this happens to my desktop.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Stalls Loading Squirrelmail Website?

Oct 28, 2010

The basics: Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid x64 with Firefox 3.6.11 on a Thinkpad T61p 2gb ram/500gb HD. When I try to access my email via Squirrelmail, Firefox hangs on loading. If I stop the page from loading, wait a few minutes, then try again, I have a 50:50 chance of it loading this time.

I've run the update to make sure I have the most recent versions of software, but it still hangs. I've tried a few cursory searches, but find nothing referencing Lucid or that is otherwise current.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Crashes When Opening Music Website

Oct 19, 2010

I have a strange problem with my browser(s), even Epiphany....when I go to my music site [URL] then log in, go to my page and click on link to play a song the browser Crashes. It never did this before and I dont know what I could have done to cause this. It only does this on this website. Could it be that they use a Quicktime plugin to play the music? I don't know cause I used to be able to play music on there before. It doesnt do this on my Reverbnation site page, just Icompositions. If I click on the icon to restart browser a box comes up saying "we're sorry"...your browser crashed for no apparent reason.....and offers a choice to either reload the page (that repeatedly crashes) or start new session. It isn't a big deal but this never used to happen before. Could it be some bad code on that website?

Ubuntu :: VirtualBox Crashes Session Almost Immediately?

Oct 11, 2010

On a fresh install of the Meerkat release candidate, I've installed the latest VirtualBox (3.2.8-64453, not open source version). When I run it, I get a user-agreement notice box as expected.

But, (1) sometimes immediately thereafter, or if not, then (2) as soon as I move the mouse pointer or (3) after I use the PageDown key to get to the bottom of the agreement text and use a key combination for "I agree," my Ubuntu user session crashes and I have to log in again.

The only other weird symptom I'm having is that I cannot set visual effects to anything but "None" (if I attempt to, I get an alert "The Composite extension is not available").

Perhaps there's a video-related problem underlying both issues, i.e., the X server is failing in both cases?

Fedora Hardware :: F15 Live CD Crashes Immediately On Amilo Notebook

Jun 20, 2011

I have a Fujitsu Amilo Pi 3525 notebook with 4 GB RAM and I am trying out Fedora 15 64-bit. When I boot from the CD, it reboots at the point where plymouth should exit and X should start. There are no obvious error messages from the console; it just reboots. Here is the hardware spec. for this laptop: [URL]

This notebook has been generally reliable and runs 64-bit Ubuntu without any problems. I am planning to test the CD in another host (although the media check did not fail) and at least try the 32-bit version (even though I know it can't address of the RAM). As experiences with Linux go, it feels a little early to hit a brick wall so early in the process.

Fedora :: Gnome3 Crashes Immediately - Some Repos Disappeared / Don't Work

Jun 27, 2011

Two days ago I finally upgraded from Fedora14 (x64) to Fedora15 (x64). [A bit of backstory: I first tried the preupgrade method, I always try it but for some reason it always fails (gives me errors about dependencies that it cannot solve), so as usual I downloaded the full DVD and upgraded using it. It usually works but, as usual, the first time I boot I have to boot in runlevel 3 because after the update my Nvidia drivers aren't up to date with the kernel, so using runlevel 3 I was able to yum update both Kernel and Kmod-nvidia packages; after that I could finally reboot and enjoy the new Gnome3 interface]

When I was finally able to boot in graphical mode (see above), everything worked fine: I had my Gnome3 desktop in front of me, programs worked, all my settings from Fedora14 were still there, all installed programs were still working etc etc. Of course, PackageKit listed a bunch of updates that I needed to do (more than 700 actually), so obviously I gave it the thumbs up to update; unfortunately, some dependencies could not be resolved, to be precise they are dependencies for the packages Mono, RPM and VLC (more details later).......

Fedora Installation :: Install Software Crashes Immediately After Select US English On First Screen

Mar 15, 2010

When I attempt to install the OS on my PC, the install software crashes immediately after I select US-English on the first screen. I'm copying the entire error report below. My system is configured as follows: Gigabyte P35-DS3R motherboard with 4G RAM. (FYI, I'm using the 32-bit LiveCD just because I may need a 32-bit OS for some purposes. I know this means I may not be able to use all of my RAM.) There are 3 500G hard drives connected to the computer. /dev/sda and /dev/sdb are RAID-1 mirrors via the on-motherboard ICH9R RAID chip. The logical partitions show up as /dev/dm-1, /dev/dm-2, /dev/dm-3, /dev/dm-4, and /dev/dm-5. When I type `fdisk -l`, I can see sda, sdb, and dm-* all separately. (I can provide the full output of `fdisk` if anybody wants to see it.)

/dev/sdc is a standalone drive without RAID.

I want to install Fedora on /dev/dm-2 with swap on /dev/dm-5. Currently, /dev/dm-1 and /dev/sdc2 each contain a separate installation of WinXP. I suspect the problem is with detecting RAID, thus I have deleted most of the error report that doesn't seem to concern storage detection.

Networking :: Long Delay In Website Loading

Apr 26, 2010

I am having a problem with internet browsing. Whenever I type the address of any webiste like Google
or URL...or any other, the firefox gives message at "Status Bar" that "Looking up google.com" or "Looking up yahoo.com" etc for every website for about 20-25 seconds and than launches the website successfully. Why this is happening and how can I correct it?I also tried this in Opera and Google Chrome and same problem occurs in them.Moreover, if I ping any domain inside terminal, it instantly starts pinging (with ttl 51) and recieving data from that domain resulting that the problem is with browsers.

Ubuntu :: Firefox 3.5.7 (ubuntuzilla Upgrade) Does Not Fully Quit / Crashes Firefox

Jan 9, 2010

I recently upgraded (via Ubuntuzilla) to firefox 3.5.7 and now, every single time I close Firefox, the program seems to crash without quitting completely.

First, I receive an error saying that the program will not close and asks me if I want to Force Quite or Wait for it to close on its own. This has been happening ever since I upgraded to Karmic and if I just wait it usually quits fully after a couple seconds.

Now what happens is this: the window still closes, but if I try to reopen Firefox then I get this error stating that Firefox is already open and therefore cannot be opened again. The only way to get back into Firefox is to restart the entire computer. (Incidentally, this is the same problem that occurs whenever I try to Force Quit Firefox)

This now happens every single time I "close" Firefox.

Does anyone know the source of this error? Or a workaround?

Ubuntu :: Gnome 3 Random Crashes / Resolve This?

Jun 4, 2011

About 1-2 times a day (3 today and it's just 9 AM here...) Gnome 3 decides to just not care about me any more, crashes and logs me out. No warning, no error on screen, just some black screen with text (like when shutting down the computer and it's stopping services) which lasts half a second, then back to the login screen.

Any ideas what might be wrong or where I could find some logs to post them here?

Fedora :: Website Loading But Buttons And Games Not Working

OpenSUSE :: SeaMonkey Crashes Computer On ABCGo Website?

Jan 22, 2011

When using SeaMonkey to view the following website, the whole computer "crashes". It crashes in the sense that it no longer accepts input(via keyboard and mouse), and the screensaver does not activate when the laptop screen is closed. The screen does not go black and the Caps Lock key does not flash as in a kernel panic. This is the only time in my entire lifetime of Linux that an application actually crashes the system and has effects similar to that of a kernel panic.

This is the website:No Ordinary Detention Full Episode - No Ordinary Family - ABCThe video plays for some time, but after a while the computer just stops responding to input and the video(unfortunately) stops playing.Unfortunately, I can not say much looking from the kernel log(/bin/dmesg), because each time I restart my computer, it is erased. Also, I checked the System Log(/var/log/messages), and nothing seemed out of the ordinary.I watched a previous episode of the show on the same website using Opera, and all fared well. However, what could be the problem with watching it using SeaMonkey?openSUSE 11.3 64-bitSeaMonkey 2.0.11Adobe Flash 10(10,0,45,2)KDE 4.5.5X.Org X Server 1.8.0

General :: Evolution Mail Always Crashes In Ubuntu 9.04 / Resolve This?

Jul 31, 2009

I encounter a serious problem with evolution mail in ubuntu jaunty ...
probably after a recent upgrade!

When I click on Evolution Mail icon the applications is loading o.k.
Then at the bottom bar it shows the message "Fetching Mail (...)" And then it suddenly closes... And this behaviour is a standard one.

a) I erased the .evolution directory in case it is corrupted, so forcing the application to re-create it... No success.

b) I booted using the previous kernel (2.6.28-13-generic) The new one is 2.6.28-14-generic ... Same problem

c) I re-installed the application ... No luck!

d) I checked the /etc/nsswitch.conf file... Here is it's content code...

I don't see something strange here ...

Does anyone experience the same problem ?
What shall I do ? Wait for the next upgrade or turn back to Thunderbird?

Software :: Cannot Resolve Hostname - Image Loading

Nov 21, 2010

I am using a Dell Latitude D610 that is a few years old, and running Fedora 13. I do not think hardware is too relevant to my problem, nor is it an issue with my OS itself. I do not dare perform an upgrade to Fedora 14 at this point because this is an active work machine, for school use. To the heart of the problem, I am extremely irritated by the erratic behavior of Epiphany Browser (and just an hour ago, Midori). If I open more than a few pages at once (e.g. ctrl-clicking a bunch of Google search results) more often than not I get a chain of "cannot resolve hostname" blank tabs.

Oddly enough, I refresh the pages (one by one, of course - I don't know how to mass refresh) and they load properly! The problem is more prominent on Wikipedia - most articles have images embedded here and there amongst the text. When I visit the page, none of these show up - the page loads, and after I see the blue mercury-looking progress indicator shoot to the end, the spaces where the images should be are blanked and in the centers lie a little thumbnail of a grey photo with the corner turned up - e.g. generic-can't-show-the-image.

This is remediated by visiting wikimedia.org or refreshing the article itself, whereupon the images fall into place. The problem seems to carry over into Midori browser, which I installed a few hours ago just to use as an alternative - I say "had" because just now, the problem resolved itself. I strongly suspect that it has to do with my changing my cache size from 169 MB to 13 MB, which I did just now. That issue is now trivial; next question: Google Docs behaves very strangely in my browser. Whenever I make a normal alphanumeric keystroke, it shows up fine; but "backspace" and "delete" and "enter" are both doubled.

I double-space between my paragraphs by accident and when I make a mistake in my typing I often suck myself into a cycle of mistakes. E.g. "Polanrd" --> "Polan" --> "Pol" --> "Pold" (hitting backspace twice to trim off "rd", but Google Docs redoubles the keystrokes into four backspaces and I end up taking off too much and adding the lone "d" in the wrong place). The problem shows up to a lesser extent in the built-in chat, wherein backspace is not affected, but every time I hit "enter" my chat appears twice (as though I had hit enter twice).

Fedora :: F13 Crashes On Half Of Boots / Resolve This?

Jun 12, 2010

Hello everyone. I switched over to Fedora a little while ago, maybe a month or two, towards the end of when 12 was out. 12 ran just fine, but around when I upgraded to 13 I started experiencing issues. I first upgraded by switching repositories and installing via yum, which seemed to run fine for awhile. However, came to the point where about every other boot (a little more often, actually), the system would crash at the login screen, not allowing me to login. Ctrl-Alt-Backspace or other rescue keys don't work- in fact, if the mouse is still working, they freeze the pointer as well.

Finally I decided to get the 13 DVD and re-install. Downloaded, media checked out, ran the install... and I'm still having the same issues. I know I should be providing more info here, but I'm not sure what log files to look for and post here. A few notes of relevance are that I've tried changing the ACPI settings in my BIOS to be as compatible as possible, and also tried booting using noacpi, which doesn't seem to be fixing it- I also have Nouveau installed.

So, what should I do? Anything I need to provide to help troubleshoot, I'll gladly do.

Slackware :: X Crashes After Update To -current / Resolve This?

Dec 17, 2010

I recently upgraded to -current from 13.0 on my Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop. It seems to have strange problems since then. The X crashes after sometime if I am running a video in firefox (flash based, say .....) in the full-screen mode. When I am not in the full-screen, it seems to run just fine. A similar thread was posted a few days back (http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...rashes-846796/) and I thought I had overcome the problem using one of the suggestions provided, but apparently, I just had not run full-screen videos ever since (and I thought it was solved!). code...

I should mention that, the crash happened when I was running a video chat on gmail in full-screen mode too. I have the Xorg.0.log for that too, if it is going to be helpful. Also, one thing I noticed was that even Ctrl+Alt+b_space does not work when this crash happens!! (so, I have to go ahead and reboot the system using the power button everytime) This I find very strange, since if at all, I should have been able to kill the process and restart X.

This seems to be an extraordinarily long thread, but I have put in whatever I thought could be useful info I should give. I will appreciate any help in resolving this issue.
