Ubuntu :: Opera Browser Keeps Crashing / Stop It To Do So?

May 31, 2010

I have another opera browser problem,i upgraded to version 10.53 build 6330 last week. it keeps crashing the cpu goes to 100% and wont come down, i had this problem with the previous version but its a lot worse with the new version.
also noticed that when browsing ebay the scroll is very jerky until you get about a third of the way down the page then it scrolls ok again.
i get the feeling the crashes are something to do with the flash player.
i tried to uninstall flash but i cannot get it to uninstall .

Ubuntu :: Fonts Gone All Funny In Opera Web Browser

Aug 10, 2011

Today I added more fonts to ~/.fonts directory. I launched Opera and the fonts are gone funny [image attached]. I don't have this problem in Firefox of Google Chrome/Chromium. I changed fonts in Opera >> Preferences but to no avail. Also I deleted .opera directory. No joy. The only solution I've found is to delete .fonts directory (but I want those fonts for other applications).

Debian :: Opera Browser New Repository Anywhere?

Mar 22, 2010

I've always used the repos at [URL] to get Opera both on Lenny and Squeeze.
So my sources.list has this line:
deb [URL] lenny non-free

But now I see these has not been updated since november 2009. Is there a newer repo somewhere? I know you can download opera from the opera website - but that is too much work when you have many computers to manage.

General :: Opera - Mplayer Instead Of Flash Any Distro / Browser

Apr 18, 2010

The thing is that flash sucks for linux on 64-bit, performance vice. Due to this I actually download every clip to a temp folder and play the file while it's being downloaded with mplayer. This works really nice. Flash is not to play a video. Does there exist a plugin for this for any browser? I tried google, but I can't find the right words to search for. Edit: I did find a plugin for playing wmp things, that is not what I'm asking for!

Ubuntu :: Iron Browser As Default?

Jun 11, 2010

Ubuntu 10.04 running on HP Compaq nx9600 laptop

I have a question re: Iron web browser. I downloaded the the latest iron-linux-32.gz

I unzipped the package to /opt/iron-linux-32 and I can run the browser with no problem from the command line or from the gui. This is good.

However, how can I add Iron to the list of applicable browsers so that I can tell the OS to use Iron and not Firefox as default browser? Only Firefox is in the list of preferred applications.

Ubuntu :: Get Firefox As The Default Browser

Dec 28, 2010

I tried Chrome, but I still like Firefox better. I can't figure out how to get Firefox back as the default browser. When I go to Preferences --> Prefered Applications, web browser is set to Firefox.

I found this post...[url]

They said to run this command...


Tried that and it didn't help either. When clicking on link icons on my desktop, they open up in Chrome. Chrome says something to the extent "chrome is not your default browser to open links with. Do you want to make it?" I selected No and checked the box to not show it again. (That's why the above is not exactly what it said.) Kind of funny it said that yet it still opened up with Chrome and not Firefox.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Set Firefox To Be Default Browser In 10.10

Mar 27, 2011

I cannot set Firefox to be my default browser in Ubuntu 10.10. It used to be the default until I installed Chromium last year. Since then, Ubuntu Software Center, LibreOffice, EverNote (through Wine) and probably other apps open links in Chromium instead of Firefox.

I tried several solutions to no avail :

- System > Preferences > Preferred Applications : Web Browser = Firefox I tried with the custom command too : "firefox %s" => still opens Chromium.

- Firefox internal preferences : firefox = default

- Chromium internal preferences : chromium is NOT the default

- stuff like "sudo update-alternatives --config x-www-browser" set to firefox => another fail

- uninstalling Chromium : that works, Firefox opens all the links. Obviously it is not the desired solution as I want to use Chromium too.

- in Gnome Configuration Editor, there are no mention of chromium and /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/http/command = firefox %s

Ubuntu :: Chromium Will Not Become Default Browser?

May 19, 2011

So I've been poking around google and trying to figure out if there's an answer - or at least a semi-solution to this problem, and have come up with nothing. I've just recently installed Chromium and since I've had it on my Windows 7 install, I'm trying to set it as my default browser, but for some reason it doesn't seem to stay my default browser.

Opening and closing it seems to erase the setting as it always tells me that "Chromium is not your default browser, would you like to make it your default?" And I don't know why.

Ubuntu :: Software Center Does Not Use The Default Browser

Feb 26, 2011

I have Firefox and Chromium installed since last year on Ubuntu 10.10.Firefox is and has always been my Default Browser.Recently, the Ubuntu Software Center changed its mind on what to do when I click on the "website" link on software pages: it now opens the link in Chromium instead of Firefox.I want it back to opening links in Firefox.I suspect the last updates of Chromium to be responsible for this behavior.When I remove Chromium from my Ubuntu, the links open in Firefox. Reinstalling Chromium leads back to links opening in Chromium.

The Ubuntu menu System > Preferences > Preferred Applications shows that the default browser is Firefox.In Firefox, menu Tools > Preferences > Advanced > General > "Check now" tells me "Firefox is already set as your default browser".In Chromium, Preferences > Basic > Default Browser confirms that : "Chromium is not currently your default browser".I also changed the following setting from Chromium to Firefox (and restarted my computer) to not avail:


sudo update-alternatives --config x-www-browser

There are 2 choices for the alternative x-www-browser (providing /usr/bin/x-www-browser).

Selection Path Priority Status
0 /usr/bin/chromium-browser 40 auto mode
1 /usr/bin/chromium-browser 40 manual mode
* 2 /usr/bin/firefox 40 manual mode

tl;dr : Where can I set the browser used to open "Website" links in the Ubuntu Software Center ?
