Debian Multimedia :: Iceweasel Render The Font So Tiny?

Oct 12, 2015

Why is the font rendered so small on this site? C++ Shell? Before having Debian Stretch as a dual boot, the fonts rendered much better in the VBox VM after installing infinality.

Debian Configuration :: Console Font Size Under Squeeze - Grub Screen Is Very Tiny

May 17, 2011

My Squeeze installation has the horrific 80x25 line display, and I cannot stand it. I know it can do better, because the grub screen is very tiny. I ran dpkg-reconfigure console-setup, but the offerings there aren't much better. I don't know what happened to the good ol' days of grub when all you had to do was pass vga=791 to the kernel to get a decent console size... but it seems they are gone.

I don't really understand this new v2 grub... I don't know why it was necessary to change how it was configured, when it seemed to work so exquisitely. how I would accomplish the functional equivalent of passing vga=791 (1024x768@75hz) to the kernel in grub

Ubuntu :: By Default Pango Is Choosing AR PL UMing CN As Font To Render Japanese Text When Current Font Doesn't Have Japanese Glyphs

May 4, 2010

Actually I want to log a bug but I don't really know what package to log it against. The problem is that by default Pango is choosing the AR PL UMing CN as the font to render Japanese text when the current font doesn't have Japanese glyphs. But AR PL UMing CN is a Chinese font, so Chinese glyphs for kanji characters (e.g., 覚) are displayed. This is jarring and confusing for Japanese readers.

This situation mostly arises when you have mixed English and Japanese text. Some applications (for instance Firefox) will allow you to select a font for Asian text. Thus if the text contains only Asian characters it will use the font you select, rather than what Pango would have selected. But if it is a mix of English and Japanese, you end up with the wrong glyphs.

Other environments (like gnome-terminal, or a gedit) have difficulties as well. Since the primary interface requires mono spaced roman characters you run into difficulty selecting fonts. Most Japanese fonts only have proportional roman characters. This means that if use a nice roman font and use Japanese text (for instance file names), you end up with Chinese glyphs. What I want is a mechanism that will work across all of Gnome for selecting the font I want to use for Chinese characters. That way I can choose either Japanese or Chinese glyphs.

I realize this is low priority. It only bugs me a little, but many of my Japanese colleagues are put off from using Ubuntu because they are confused by the Chinese glyphs that pop up on my screen from time to time. As I said, I'd like to file a bug, but I'm not sure against what package...

Ubuntu :: Tiny Font In KDE4 Login Screen After Logout

Jan 22, 2011

I am using KDE4 on 10.10 64-bit.

Only ever use the KDE desktop so completely removed XFE and the rudimentary Gnome left behind on the install.

Not a desperate problem just an annoyance.

Everything works fine, except if I logout the next login screen is using a really tiny font and I can't seem to find anywhere to change it.

The DPI must be about 10, as I can't even read it when blown up on my projector.

Debian Multimedia :: Can't Render Text With Kino

Feb 11, 2015

When trying to render text with kino on amd64, I get:

Kino experienced a segmentation fault.

Dumping stack from the offending thread

Obtained 2 stack frames.
kino() [0x43bdb0]
/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ [0x7f844b8401e0]

Done dumping - exiting.

I tried 'rm -rf ~/.kino-history' but this did not work.

I realized what I could have done wrong. I added as a repository and installed mythtv and avidemux. I also did an update with aptitude and an upgrade with aptitude.

Debian Multimedia :: Unable To Install On Another Debian Machine The Same Iceweasel 5?

I am running Debian testing on my box and iceweasel 5 with several addons. My question is the following: is there a way to export above all my addons settings to a file? I would like to be able to install on another debian machine the same iceweasel 5 and have the same addons installed (if I could have even the same toolbar it would be dream) automatically.

Debian Multimedia :: How Does Iceweasel Keep Itself Up To Date

Jan 4, 2015

I have been a casual Debian Wheezy user for quite some time now. And one of the things that alarms me is that how does Iceweasel keep itself up to date on the latest secuirty patches ? I also use Windows on my desktop and it is dual booted with Linux. In Windows I use Nightly build of FireFox. They update themselves almost everyday. Normal Firefox also seems to update pretty often. But Iceweasel only updates if I do an aptitude full-upgrade

And that is also once a month. So how is Iceweasel expected to be secure if there is such a long delay in the patches ? Iceweasel also does'nt have a "Check for updates" options like Firefox.

Won't we be better off using the normal Firefox on Debian distributions ? IMO that gives faster patches for security issues.

Also does Iceweasel use Flash Player or gnash ? Because running dpkg gives me the following output-:

Code: Select allsreyan@debian:/usr/share/dict$ dpkg -s gnash
dpkg-query: package 'gnash' is not installed and no information is available
Use dpkg --info (= dpkg-deb --info) to examine archive files,
and dpkg --contents (= dpkg-deb --contents) to list their contents.

Flash Player also has individual updates in Windows which is maybe once every 2 weeks. I also don't see that in Debian. Flash players need to be kept up to date since they are responsible for most security breaches.

I had started a thread some time ago where a user commented that Iceweasel was out of date and needed to be replaced by Firefox. [URL] .....

So why is the Debian community still sticking to Iceweasel ? Why not switch to Firefox like Ubuntu ?

Debian Multimedia :: Iceweasel Uses CPU Obnoxiously

Apr 14, 2015

Iceweasel uses to much computing resources without reason.

In my desktop, where I keep some system monitoring tools at close view, I could notice Iceweasel extensively using system resources, but of course memory is expected from whatever is being loaded on the webs, cpu however, it kept a steady 18% on my 6 core AMD FX6300, this is enough to keep the processor's temperature a whole ~20℃ above idle.

Since then, I've installed a proper watercooler to keep temps reasonable in this hot CPU. But still, that’s too much processing required for webbrowsing alone, and this is not considering heavier stuff like flash, youtube and etc.

Compared to KDE's proposed browser konqueror, and an new alternative Qupzilla, they're much lighter and consequently much faster.

Debian Multimedia :: Iceweasel And Youtube - Why Only 720p

May 21, 2015

System: Debian 8 - Graphics: AMD Radeon R9 280X Free Driver

With Iceweasel, when I watch HTML5 Youtube videos, I only have the quality 720p as the highest.

In the same machine, Windows 8.1, I can watch in 1080p in Internet Explorer.

I guess that it's not a problem of Iceweasel but about how Youtube serves the videos to my system. Is that correct?

Debian Multimedia :: Iceweasel Locking Up Computer

Mar 12, 2016

I'm running iceweasel 44.0.2 on debian stretch w/ xfce. I'm suddenly having a problem with iceweasel freezing and subsequently freezing my desktop. It can be fixed by deleting the .mozilla file (cache?). When iceweasel starts freezing up, the other browsers (both chromium and chrome) freeze up as well. I honestly don't even know how to start to address what is going on.

Debian Multimedia :: God-awful Fonts In Iceweasel

Jun 5, 2010

My iceweasel version iceweasel:

Here are two screenshot of a Wikipedia page (modified via readability). My serif font is Liberation Serif.

Here is the same font in Open Office Writer

And here it is in KWrite

To me, the last two look all right-- at least all the lower case glyphs are the same height. So why does the font look so terrible in iceweasel?

Debian Multimedia :: Iceweasel Bookmarks Disappeared?

Aug 10, 2010

I noticed that the "Bookmarks" menu in Iceweasel was totally empty. I quit IW and started it again, and the problem persisted. I disabled all my addons, restarted again, and they were still gone. I tried to restore them (the backup copies are stored as JSON files in ~/.mozilla) from Bookmarks -> Organize -> Import -> Restore, but I got "unable to process the backup file" for each of the backups.

Debian Multimedia :: Iceweasel And KDE Leave Crashes X

Feb 25, 2011

I installed Squeeze on an eeepc 900.Everything seems to work well, except for one thing: iceweasel, when drawing certain windows, likes to crash the entire KDE session. This is 100% replicable simply by right-clicking on a bookmark put on the bookmarks menu toolbar, and trying to go to "properites" on that item. It only does this, however, on my wife's eeepc 900, it does not happen on my 900A (different gpu and cpu though...). the two systems have the same packages installed.

The most frustrating thing is that there is no error output whatsoever. I have looked through all the logs in /var/log, and I couldn't find anything. I have run iceweasel from the command line and redirected its output to a file, but the whole system hard-locked, and when I rebooted, there was no log file. I have started X using "startx" instead of using kdm, and I cannot see any output to the VT that kicked it off because the system hard-locks.

As far as I can see, it only happens in iceweasel. If I disable compositing, it becomes stable again -- but I don't want to have to do this, as it interferes with features she is accustomed to.Oh yes, I should also add that this netbook worked fine under eeebuntu and compiz -- never an issue.

Debian Multimedia :: Minor Scrolling With Iceweasel-4

Apr 14, 2011

I've had some minor scrolling issues with iceweasel-4 which mostly did not draw my attention until yesterday when scrolling this page : [URK]. Scrolling was choppy.....


Some others things I've noticed : running iceweasel-4 in virtualbox ( minimal gnome installation Sid ) , running iceweasel-4 in virtualbox ( minimal KDE installation Squeeze with gnome-themes added to be sure ) did not have these scrolling issues.....( so is nvidia to be blamed ? ) I was about to remove the nvidia driver ( from ) and replace it with nvidia driver from Debian when I tried just one more step: Added deb [URL] unstable main to sources.list and upgraded libcairo2 from version 1.10.2-1.1~bpo60+1 ( squeeze-backports ) to version 1.10.2-6.1

Debian Multimedia :: Modify The Headers For Iceweasel?

Debian Multimedia :: Iceweasel Won't Install On Wheezy 7.8 Sparc

Jan 18, 2015

So the other day I installed Debian Wheezy on my Sun Blade 150. While the OS is installed fine, all the webkit based browsers continuously crash after a few pages. So, I tried to download IceWeasel since it wasn't installed when I tried installing Debain off the DVD. The only problem is, it won't install as the Xulrunner version it requests is xulrunner-24.0_24.5.0esr-1~deb7u1_sparc, however the only version available on the repositories is newer. Is there any way to get the older xulrunner version, or is there going to be a fix for IceWeasel soon on Sparc?

I am using Debian GNU/Linux 7.8 with Linux 3.16.0-0 (x86_64) from backports and XFCE. I am using nautilus for the default file manager because thunar is not able to connect to server. My problem is that when i want to upload a file from iceweasel, the bookmarked webdav location on nautilus is not shown. This mean that iceweasel doesn't use nautilus? If so how to change this? Nautilus is checked in the default programs.

Debian Multimedia :: I3 - Iceweasel Does Not Apply Gtk-theme On Login

May 1, 2015

After logging in to i3 i launch an instance of iceweasel via

Code: Select allexec --no-startup-id i3-msg 'workspace 2; exec /usr/bin/iceweasel

This instance of iceweasel only applies half of the gtk-theme, which i set via the mate-control-center.

The main problem is that the text in the right-click menu and on inactive tabs has the wrong colour (dark text on dark background)

When closing this instance of iceweasel and opening another one, the gtk-theme is correctly applied.

Installed gtk-theme-switch and set the theme there, now it works as expected

Debian Multimedia :: Iceweasel Icedove Spontaneously Crashing?

Aug 27, 2015

Debian Jessie
Iceweasel 38.2.0
Icedove 31.8.0

Iceweasel and Icedove spontaneously crash, sometimes individually, sometimes together. Upon restart they will both run, but the amount of time they run before crashing again decreases with each crash. The way to extend use of these programs is to reboot Debian. (I typically run my computer 24/7 to run community service programs.)

How do I get these programs to run without spontaneously crashing?

Debian Multimedia :: Text Invisible On Epiphany And Iceweasel?

Jan 24, 2011

I can't find a solution for not seeing any texts on html5 web pages. I haven't found any other report about such an odd behaviour on the web so far. Even on the new W3C web page (see the screenshot below for details) I can't see any texts. They are just invisible. I can mark and copy them, but there is nothing to see on Iceweasel 3.0.6 and Epiphany 2.22.3.

Because both browsers behave the same way I guess it's not a browser issue, but something more basic. My Debian Lenny stable should be unblemished because I've never used anything else than the main sources. I can't believe, that the W3C has switched to a new standard without propper fallback-support for older browser versions...

Debian Multimedia :: Iceweasel And Icons Stored In Bookmarks?

I don't find the little icons and tiny previews that iceweasel seems to make by grabbing an icon from a webpage at all helpful, and consider them a security risk.I have been using Debian Lenny for some time and have tried hard to foil the chrome engine (?) xul_runner (?) from sticking these icons in various places. But it still manages to stick them in, of all places, my bookmark file. How do I prevent that?

Debian Multimedia :: Iceweasel On Install Won't Follow Some Hyperlinks

May 26, 2011

I'm having some major issues with "Iceweasel" on Debian 6.0.1 (squeeze). I've done some extensive google searching but can't really find anything on this issue.

Basically, Iceweasel simply won't follow some links. It seems to spin for a second and then remain on the same page. I haven't been able to find any correlation between the type/style of links and whether or not the browser will work correctly or not when the link is clicked. Also, sometimes if I have multiple tabs open, I'll open gmail in a new tab and it will do nothing. If I exit the app and restart with one new tab, it will correctly bring up gmail (does this with other sites too gmail is just an example).

I actually use Chrome for most stuff now but need FF/Iceweasel for PHP debugging (a Zend Studio plugin not available in Chrome).

how to get more debug info form Iceweasel

I've thought about just installing Firefox but seems I have to do it manually and I'm not convinced that it would make a difference as supposedly the code is the same (?). I may just try it anyway as I'm out of ideas.

Here's the stats:

peter@sendai[vanilla]$ cat /proc/version
Linux version 2.6.32-5-amd64 (Debian 2.6.32-31) ( (gcc version 4.3.5 (Debian 4.3.5-4) ) #1 SMP Mon Mar 7 21:35:22 UTC 2011
Iceweasel 3.5.16 (like Firefox 3.5.16)
