How can I make the security applet stop showing an update for firefox 3.5.9? I have a more recent version installed from mozilla repo: firefox 3.6. The mozilla repo already has a higher priority (95 instead of 99), so I don't know what to do.
I just installed the miro internet tv application using yast on my openSUSE 11.2 and I cannot start it.
Running the miro application from console gives me the following output:
nuca@ionpetrache:~> miro PyNotify support disabled on your platform. 2010-05-28 13:51:55,501 INFO Starting up Miro 2010-05-28 13:51:55,502 INFO Version: 2.5.4 2010-05-28 13:51:55,508 INFO OS: Linux 188.8.131.52-0.2-desktop i686 2010-05-28 13:51:55,509 INFO Revision: ssh://email@example.com/var/git/miro - 1e20db82
Through YaST's System Services I configured an application to start on boot. However, the application (mediatomb) is using mysql, so it should not be started before mysql. It is however, which means mediatomb fails to start.
How can I make sure mysql is started before mediatomb?
so have used the kde screen edge thingy once for Firefox with another application, but now every time that i launch Firefox it uses the half window option and have to maximise it every time. Is there any way to tell KDE that I wish to use maximised screen every time that Firefox launches.
Have tried putting Firefox window to middle so screen edge would maximise window, then close Firefox that it would save that setting, but not listening. Does it maybe have something to do with Kwin?
I have a problem when trying to update or install new application via Yast, I'm using opensuse 11.3. PackageKit Error repo-not-available: Failed to download /content from Index of /distribution/11.3/repo/oss
After upgrade opensuse from 11.2 to 11.3 a cannot use firefox. I start firefox form shell and nothing. When I use strace then firefox stop on "waitpid(-1, ". Firefox work well only when i login as a root. I removed java sun plugin and started firefox in save-mode and check to disable all extensions etc and nothing to do.
I updated to firefox 3.6 from the repository, it works bad, so I come back to 3.5 from the repository, now firefox doesn't start anymore. Try with click not work Try by console with firefox not work /usr/bin/firefox not work /usr/lib64/firefox/firefox not work Also try with -p and -safe-mode not work Permission of that files are rwxr-xr-x group=root user=root

I got sick to DEATH of Adobe AIR and TweetDeck screwing up constantly, and then Adobe announces there will be no more Adobe AIR for Linux. Fine, screw 'em, I'll switch to something else. So I hunt around for the options, most of which suck. Then I discover Choqok is already installed on my machine (11.4). Except the POS doesn't work.
To use it, I have to authenticate with my Twitter account. So I click Add, select Twitter, it pops up the dialog. I leave the alias as Twitter, click the authenticate with Twitter button. The Firefox icon pops up and bounces around - but Firefox is already running. So nothing happens! No Twitter access, no page loaded, nothing. I shut down Firefox, try it again. Same deal. As usual, no one bothered to test this POS software before releasing it. how to get this **** to authenticate to Twitter in the absence of ANY useful documentation for this junk?
I am a opensuse 11.3 user with firefox 3.6.8.I use 32 bit version and having trouble with one of my banks applet when launched from the firefox , it shows up as 'start:applet not initiazed' and then just hangs there.I have tried a lot googling and looking around in opensuse forums, but could not get my browser working. If I use How do I test whether Java is working on my computer? , it shows the java version is working. I have tried removing icedtea , but did not help.I have also found , when I install opensuse 11.3 , this applet seemed to have worked fine. BUt, after all the online updates system did , it just stopped working with this applet not iniatilized message.
On my Windows xp computer, when i open Firefox 3.6.3 and go into the preferences I can click "update" and firefox can check for updates and download and install them all from inside the browser.I have Firefox 3.6.3 on Opensuse 11.2, and in the firefox preferences in the 'update' section there is no way to download or install updates.Is it impossible for Firefox to update and install by from inside firefox in OpenSuse?Do we need to use the command line or Yast or one click installs to install software on opensuse? Can't Firefox update from inside Firefox without yast or command line?
Firefox checks spelling in text areas, which is good. However, the dictionary it uses is global and dictionary changes do not reflect across text areas. When your chosen spelling dictionary is Polish and you enter text in English into box#1 and then into box#2, and then you decide to review your spelling, you can change the active dictionary to English. However, this will affect the spelling of box#2 only, which is good because box#1 might actually be in Polish. So you go back to box#1 and change the dictionary to English? Nope; the dictionary is English already so choosing English has no effect and the words are still marked as incorrect!
What you need:
A frame with two text areas, e.g. Bugzilla.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Set the spelling dictionary to Polish. 2. Enter "damaged " into box#1. 3. Enter "damaged " into box#2. 4. While in box#2, choose the English spelling dictionary. 5. Return to box#1. 6. Append text "damaged " (once more).
New to Suse. Have been driving Zorin, where all updates can happen at once. Have been trying to update Firefox (3.5.10) to new ver and Yast doesn't seem to be aware of it. Do I need to compile? My Zorin package (Ubuntu variant) sees each Firefox and everything else update and installs or gives me option. What do I need to do in Suse to get up to ver 3.6.8, and why isn't Yast aware?
I'm running Opensuse 3 on an EEE PC, and so far had no problems. I brought it to another house today and now Firefox seems to be unable to connect to the network.. Network is working however, as Skype is running fine. Online update won't work either.
I have openSuse11.4 x64 and FireFox 6.0. Is there a way to update Java to latest version. Guides given on Java website doesn't work, tutorials found on Google also don't work. I updated to 6u22 but thats it. Firefox founds only 6u22.
Some time ago I did an automatic update and after that firefox, thunderbird and yast2 don't start. It's not that there is an error message or sth. Their icons just start jumping and after a while it stops without anything opened. I tried even removing the zilla directories and so on but it doesn't help. Of course I tried to simply reboot the machine and strangely enough, still does not work. Opera works though and I am ok with that, however yast2 not opening is more annoying. I do all the stuff that I want from the console, but of course that's not the point
I've just installed a fresh copy of 11.4 and the updates are driving me crazy. My internet connection is up, but the download stops and goes, and when I try using firefox, it takes a minute to even start to load any page. I have the system monitor up and it is telling me that the network is not receiving anything except for these bursts of data aprox. every 30 seconds.
Is it possible that Firefox (downloaded via yast from OpenSuse repository) recently has been equipped, infected with a BACKDOOR, TROJAN HORSE?
1. As long as i only startup Firefox everything is ok.This seems very logical, cause the firewall shuts out all incomming trafic.
2. As soon as I enter an url, and the internet page start to appear on screen, the **** happens...When receiving a webpage, the firewall allows incomming traffic over the HTTP connection from the webserver BACK into my computer..
3. Then..within 3-5 minutes, without touched my keyboard or mouse,my harddisk is starting to get VERY busy. It looks like someone is remotely searching my harddisk for something
This "very busy harddisk-search behaviour" misteriously disappears again when i close Firefox!
Additional Information: I use the following firefox-plugins
- Noscript,184.108.40.206 - Flashgot,220.127.116.11 - SEO Doctor 1.0 <- switched off - Wedeveloper 1.1.8 <- switched off
How can i "monitor" the Firefox application behaviour?Is there a way to "look under the hood" to see
- What Firefox is starting up on childprocesses?
- Which activities are being done by which application, task, daemon on my harddrive during this "strange behaviour?"
