When I try to open two times Iceweasel I get this:Iceweasel is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Iceweasel process, or restart your system.I am very suprprised, because in Windows xp I can open mozilla firefox 2,3 or more times.
When I download a file, lets say text file I want it to open straight away in iceweseal.So in the "open With" dialog box if I choose iceweseal it is not opening the file in it. It just downloads the text file.
Step 1. Opened emailStep 2. clicked on "download" to download the text file.Step 3. The "open With" dialog box popups.Step 4. in the open with option I browse and select "iceweseal" as the application to open with.Step 5. It does not open any file in iceweseal 3.X It is not just with text file but with anything. So it look like the iceweseal does not want to open from the open with" dialog box.
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.
I use LXDE and in the "preferred applications" I set icedove and iceweasel as preferred mail and internet applications but when I click on an e-mail link(craigslist in my case) not only does Icedove not open, but in Iceweasel HUNDREDS of blank tabs open up rapidly and it is difficult to kill the program. This is unlike any problem I've ever encountered so I'm not going to pretend I have a clue here. As I am familiar with Thunderbird in an other distro I would prefer to stay with IceDove.
I have been using windowmaker for some time now. I really love this wm, but I've one major problem; how do I make certain windows open the same size each time I open that program? For instance, I have a certain size I prefer for Pcmanfm, Vlc, deadbeef, and geequie, but every time I run them, they open anywhere on the desktop at all sorts of sizes. I especially hate resizing a video window when the video is playing.
I can do this in fluxbox, but I have a different set of problems with that window manager, namely, I can't organize my dockapps the way I want, despite editing the slitlist and some won't work at all. While I love Openbox, I can't get the windows sized right each time, either.
I recently "upgraded" to the latest skype and now every time I open an interactive root shell, up pops skype. I can close skype then control-C in the terminal window to get the shell I want, but this is annoying to say the least. Maybe my google-foo is off, but all I can find is articles on how to run skype as root, which is no use. I've tried searching the startup files for "skype" (case independant), but so far all I can find is "LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ /usr/bin/skype" in the root .bashrc which shouldn't be starting the app.
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.
I've been wondering what's the advantages and disadvantages of installing an iceweasel extension from the debian repositories vs the addons.mozilla.org website. I can thus far see that extensions installed from the repositories can't be uninstalled from inside iceweasel. Is there any difference? Are they installed in different places? Are they always accessible to all users? Any difference at all?
Until recently I had no trouble reading PDF files in Iceweasel. Acrobat Reader would open without prompting. Now, after a recent re-install of Jessie, that does not happen. The browser just freezes when I point it to a PDF file. Reader is installed and shows up among Iceweasel's add-ons.
I just installed Debian on a new computer yesterday, it's more or less a fresh install. This morning I launched Iceweasel and it brought my computer to it's knees. I ran top, and found out that there was a process called "Web Content" using up 30 gigs of memory! Further experimentation shows that Iceweasel is fine until I open up a tab or two, and then it quickly begins consuming all my memory (I have 24 gigs) and swap space. I'm currently using Chrome, which is working fine, but I'd really prefer Iceweasel.
I mean, I followed the http://mozilla.debian.net/ wizard, but I have a problem about I don't have xulrunner-2.0, but I need libcairo2, but I have at the last version(saying apt-get install libcairo2).So is there a way to install Iceweasel 4?Sorry for my not perfect english, and if you want more info, just ask me [URL]
A few days ago, I noticed that flash wasn't working. I don't use flash often and have Flashblock guarding the gates so not quite sure when that happened. In the process of getting it running again I noticed a lot of Iceweasel add-ons are available in the Debian repos. In fact, deleting Flashblock from Firefox and switching to the one from the repos may be what fixed the problem (or it could have been the latest Iceweasel update which I reinstalled).
Anyway, my question is . . . just how do add-ons available via Synaptic and those from Firefox differ? And is it preferable and advisable to use the ones in Synaptic? Since I imported my old profile from Firefox to Iceweasel, I have a lot of standard add-ons rather than the Debian version.
I have Inceweasel 31.8.0 installed on LXDE Debian Wheezy and I am trying to make AdBlock Plus work. The thing is that I get pop-ups from any site, Youtube ad videos, etc. all the time, just like I have nothing installed to prevent that.
- Installing AdBlock from Iceweasel add-ons, with a suscription to easylist ; - installing xul-ext-adblock-plus (also with the same suscription).
With each configuration or even with none of them, I get the same results as described above. Is there anything I can do ?
By the way, I don't get Youtube ad videos on Chromium with Adblock installed through the Chrome webstore.
I have Iceweasel 38.6.0 on Jessie 8.3, and it seems to crash more or less randomly. It just suddenly disappears, and when restarted, it gives that "embarrasing"- thing. The pages reopen fine and it may take a day between crashes, or about an hour.
Where should I look for the reason of the crashing? Is there a log file or something somewhere?
My machine is old StinkBad T400. I'm using Cinnamon.
After installing 3.5.6 from backports, applets stopped working. I installed the java-6-sun package but it's still not making it. Searched google but haven't found anything but some bug fixes. Also saw something about ipv6, but not sure if that's related. That seemed to affect java programs. I use jedit and that is working fine. I downloaded the latest SDK from Sun and created a link from /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins and /usr/lib/iceweasel/plugins and /usr/lib/mozilla-firefox/plugins to /opt/SDK/jdk/jre/plugin/i386/ns7-gcc29/libjavaplugin_oji.so. Prior to the update to 3.5.6, the plugins were working and I could get the ..... stuff etc.
I'm running Debian unstable on amd64 with KDE4 desktop. I know there exists KDE integration package, that enables iceweasel to use KDE file dialogs. In ubuntu its called kmozillahelper. There was similar packages in Debian (called differently as far as I remember). I happily used it in unstable, but several weeks ago it disappeared for some reason and I can not find it.info on iceweasel + KDE integration in Debian?
I am running Squeeze (Gnome desktop) and I'm experiencing some problems with Iceweasel. My problem is that sometimes Iceweasel just hangs when I launch it. I can see the cursor blinking 2-3 times in the adress bar and then it just locks up. I have tried a few different versions of iceweasel, both from stable (squeeze though), experimental and now a package from http://mozilla.debian.net/packages/ with iceweasel 4 beta.
All of them behaves the same way. They work for a while and then suddenly locks up when launched. The only way to get going again is to kill the process and delete the .mozilla directory. It is possible to launch the --safe-mode though but nothing with this mode lets me change anything to get a normal session going.' Also, it doesn't matter if I have extensions installed or not, it still behaves the same way with zero of them installed. How would I go about to debug this? If I launch iceweasel from the command line I get no output but I'm sure there is a way to get some more info to work with.
I've been using Iceweasel for 4-5 months now, since I installed Debian 6.0 testing.It worked fine and I had to use flashplugin-nonfree from the repositories in order to get flash working, nothing new here.In my last apt-get upgrade, something broke. Not sure if it is the flashplugin or Iceweasel.I tried changing flashplugins (trying the 32bit one, trying the new 64bit, trying another package I found) but every time I go on ..... and click on a video, Iceweasel crashes.The only output I got was "sesmentation fault".So I tried with firefox and Iceape and they worked fine.However the firefox downloaded was 32bit, so I downloaded the 3.6.12 source and compiled it (Forgot to mention i'm on amd64, but who isn't nowadays?).Flashplugin works fine with firefox 64bit, browser doesn't crash, but I keep getting:
None of the above worked as user. I did not test all of them as root after the first one worked so don't know if they would or not. How can I get safe-mode to work as user? Do I need to add myself to a certain Group? Not a biggie but a bit of a pain to have to su to run safemode.
After using Iceweasel/Firefox 4 on Squeeze for a while (an hour or two), the bookmark toolbar becomes unresponsive and sometimes the folders (I have some bookmark folders), when clicked, will open but as soon as I move the cursor to hover over the link (to select it) the menu disappears. I never had the problem with Iceweasel/Firefox 3x. The problem is fixed by restarting the browser but that is not always a good solution nor SHOULD it have to be done.
I'm using Debian Stable and I followed the instructions from Debian Mozilla team [URL] on how to install the latest stable version of Iceweasel, but after I try to upgrade Iceweasel from Synaptic, it returns the following error message: Could not mark all packages for installation or upgrade The following packages have unresolvable dependencies. Make sure that all required repositories are added and enabled in the preferences.
Depends: xulrunner-5.0 but it is not going to be installed
