Ubuntu :: Firefox Doesn't Render Pages Properly

Feb 12, 2011

It seems that I have been running Firefox unbeknownst to me with a broken configuration. It seems that if I enable the Quote: Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above in Edit->Preferences->Content->Fonts&Colors->Advanced, pages will no longer be render properly -- they are mostly blank.When running on the command line, I notice that I get errors from Pango (whatever that is) and think there may be a connection.

I tried doing sudo aptitude reinstall libpango-perl libpango1.0-0 libpango1.0-common libpangomm-1.4-1 but it didn't fix the problems. (I haven't yet tried uninstalling pango since it looks like it removes some crucial components.)I also tried sudo dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig and it didn't help.I'm guessing that the fonts cannot be scaled.This otherwise wouldn't be an issue, but it seems that some Firefox addons forcibly ignore the configured fonts and those pop-up windows are mostly blank/empty and therefore useless.

Ubuntu :: Chromium Doesn't Render Japanese Fonts Properly

Oct 10, 2010

So far, as a former Chrome user on Windows, I am enjoying Chromium. However, there is one glaring problem that is bugging me, and is disrupting my usage of the browser.

Chromium will not show Japanese fonts properly. It's not that everything shows up as boxes. The problem is that certain characters will show in Japanese, and certain will show in Korean, thereby making the Japanese text unreadable. Copying and pasting into gedit allows me to read the Japanese text, and Firefox never had this problem, however, within Chromium, this is unreadable.

Here is a picture to show you what I mean:

Has anyone else had this problem, and fixed it? I have installed the language packs and have tried setting things to different unicode fonts and changing the encoding to unicode and even Japanese, and continue to get these errors.

Ubuntu :: Xubuntu - Won't Display/render Properly

Jun 26, 2010

I just installed Xubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx on an Intel 1.5GHz, 500 MB RAM, 128 MB video card system, 80 GB hard drive (it's a 5 year old system)....My system meets the requirements according to this [URL]

But for some reason, things aren't displaying correctly. The best way to describe it is that it's almost like Xubuntu can't "repaint" the graphics correctly. So I see distorted lines or text that doesn't render completely.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Doesn't Display Site Menus Properly?

Oct 17, 2010

I'm using Firefox 3.6.10 for Ubuntu 10.10 with the smooth-scaling ppa (only addons I'm using are Firebug and the Ubuntu modifications pack).Several sites with navigation menus the menu is spread over two lines when it obviously shouldn't be (eg. The Telegraph online, BBC News...) this happens no matter what the zoom level is set to. Chromium renders all these pages normally.

Programming :: UTF-8 Or Locales - Cannot Get Html Files On Pc To Render Properly

Jun 10, 2011

I cannot get some html files on my pc to render properly, Epiphany and Iceweasel show some non-latin characters as garbage but shows others of the same language correctly although Gedit shows the same files, with or without the html code, correctly. I have all the locales installed. Can someone point me to a solution? I am misleading you when I say "garbage", it is always a pair of question marks.

Ubuntu :: Change The Default Viewer For Dvi Files, Since Xdvi Doesn't Render Correctly?

I am using emacs+auctex for latex editing now, I want to change the default viewer for dvi files, since xdvi doesn't render correctly most of my documents; okular works perfectly, though I cannot make it the default viewer I went into the AUCTex manual, and there is a tex-view-program list that should contain the list of viewers, but I cannot find the way to customize that variable.

Ubuntu :: Creating A Movie: File Size - Cinelerra Doesn't Allow Me To Render To Mpeg

May 8, 2010

I have a two hours long home video with I edited in a video editor program. I'd like to burn it to DVD, but first I need to export it to an mpeg file. Cinelerra doesn't allow me to render to mpeg, instead it offers .avi or .dv - problem is that the resulting file size is enormous. (i.e. 1 minute of .avi = 1.2GB! or around 500MB when I output to .dv) What file format would be best to render to and at the same time not to get an insanely big file? I'd like to keep it under 1GB if possible.

General :: Why Internet Pages Suddenly Not Displayed Properly

May 7, 2010

I have linux firefox installed on my notebook, and after having a bit of a problem with it, I did a full factory reset back to all the original settings. Now when I connect to the internet, some of the pages now are not displayed properly. For instance, when visiting E-bay, the listings look fine, but my E-bay page is all listed down the page, (if that makes sense) and I cannot look at any of the photos. MSN is also, how can I put this, spread out across the page. I have done a live update to see if that makes a difference, but no joy.

Debian Multimedia :: Iceweasel Page Rendering - Not Displaying Portions Of Pages Properly ?

Jun 10, 2011

I guess this is a part deux, since I already posted one rendering issue which was eventually resolved ... having to do with the themes of this Debian Forum. Well, I don't know if this is related to that, but yesterday I noticed on another site that my Iceweasel 4.01 is not displaying portions of pages properly. See attached images. Both Chrome & Opera display that page correctly, I've included a screenshot of the same page with Chrome. I have JAVA installed and everything works perfectly fine accross the board on all browsers, except for this "once in a while" issue with Iceweasel. I've noticed this "missing content oddity" on three sites so far (out of 50 or more). No problem with eBay, craigslist, paypal, and other major players.

Open the images with a new tab, then compare both images side by side for best results.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Can't Load Web Pages?

May 17, 2010

Out of no where Firefox has just decided to not load web pages anymore. I've restarted my router, restarted my wifi card, restarted my computer, *completly* uninstalled Firefox then reinstalled it, still no luck at all. Anyone have any idea how to fix this? I'm stuck using Google Chrome now, I like it but I need the Add-Ons FireFox has (AdBlock Plus, Xmarks, DownThemAll, etc.)

Here are my specs:
Ubuntu 10.04 64bit
Acer Aspire 3680
Intel Celeron M 1.6GHz Single Core
1GiB RAM
40GiB Hard Drive

Basically all it does is sit there saying "Connecting to www.google.com..." for like 15seconds then gives me one of two pages, "The connection has timed out - The server at www.google.com is taking too long to respond." or "Unable to connect - Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at www.google.com."Google Chrome, Skype, Ubuntu's built in messenger, System Update, and so on connect just fine to the internet.

Ubuntu :: Firefox 3.5 In 9.10 - Web Pages Not Always Displaying?

Nov 14, 2009

Whilst I like Ubuntu as an operating system and generally am fine with Firefox, could anyone explain why I sometimes get errors in trying to get through to various web pages. I don't get the same errors in IE8. As an example, my telephone billing provider; I can login on both IE8 and Firefox and get into all the screens in IE8 but not always in Firefox as happened to me 30 mins ago (I think the version installed is 3.5 on Ubuntu 9.10). There is a message at the bottom of the screen showing that Firefox is trying to connect to a sub page, but it just can't display. Is there anything that I can do to resolve this and is it an encryption issue? This isn't the first time I've had issues with Firefox. In Ubuntu 9.04 the screen used to sometimes go fuzzy when I used the firefox version there.

Ubuntu :: Windows Loading Pages Faster Using Firefox?

Oct 1, 2010

Two very simmilar laptops connected to the same WiFi router loading the same web pages. Firefox on Windows does that for 3 secons, while Firefox on Ubuntu needs 1-3 minutes to load the same page. What could be the reason for this? Any idea how to fix it? The laptop with Ubuntu runs 10.04 LTS (lucid), Firefox is 3.6.10 and on any other WiFi network it loads the web pages really faster but why is much slower than Windows now?When testing the speed on URL...Ubuntu loads times faster than Windows. The WiFi router has been reseted. Firefox has been started in -safe-mode, both didn't help.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Won't Load NY Times Pages / Solution For This?

Oct 23, 2010

I have an odd problem loading certain webpages (not all) from the New York Times in Firefox.

If I try to load this for instance:http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/1...-shoes-or-not/
the page will not load and I see the text "Waiting for graphics8.nytimes.com..." in the status bar.

I did a complete reinstallation of Firefox and it worked fine (yesterday). Today the problem is back again.

I tried the page on a friend's computer also running Firefox in Ubuntu and it worked fine.

I tried it in Windows Firefox and it worked fine.

I have the same add-ons/extensions in Windows as I have in Ubuntu and, in any case, I have removed them all once and tried the page with the same non-result. I also noted that the same thing happens if I try to load the page in Google Chrome in Ubuntu.

Ubuntu :: Firefox - Often It Will Freeze My Desktop When Loading New Pages

May 4, 2011

I'm having trouble with Firefox hanging. It takes at least two attempts to launch, having to force the initial blank page to quit. Often it will freeze my desktop when loading new pages, and I have to force quit. I've upgraded to 3.6.17 but no difference. The Mozilla help page suggests disabling add-ons to find the problem, but to no avail. Chrome works OK but I'd rather use Firefox.

Software :: Some Pages Don't Work Right In Firefox 4?

Apr 2, 2011

For some reason, a few web pages don't use thier full functionality under Firefox 4. For example:GMail uses the basic HTML interfaceIn LQ, Thread Tools is now a list of buttons at the bottom of the page instead of a menu at the top.Also in LQ, clicking the member's username on a post goes to the user's profile, instead of showing the usual menu.What is the problem?Not sure if this should be in another thread, but I found that Firefox 4 often just suddenly disappears with no warning or error messages. It already happened twice today. It never happened with the beta versions.

Ubuntu :: Pages Not Loading With Security Settings In Firefox And System / Fix It?

Dec 28, 2010

I have been investigating some security precautions over the past several months. I use Ubuntu now instead of windows and FIrefox browser also. I have installed BetterPrivacy, WOT, NoSCript and a few other add ons. I have SELinux, ClamAV, AIDE, and chkrootkit installed for Ubuntu.

When we browse certain web sites, we get an error about the server being reset. However, when I put the Ubuntu install cd in and browse with Firefox, obviously with no add ons or settings changed, we can browse to the site with no problems. We are trying to be secure on the internet and I don't want to lower or get rid of any of the settings / add ons we added. What would cause servers to reset when using Firefox / Ubuntu with browser add ons / OS addons?
