Ubuntu :: Firefox Process Takes Forever To End?

Jan 14, 2010

I'm running 9.1 and Firefox 3.5.7 with a few addons (better privacy, ghostery, cookieculler, adblock, personas) on a HP 8710p laptop with 4gb of ram.I use it to browse the internet at work, and I have it up for about 8-9 hours every day, during the course of the day I will open and close tons of tabs. At the end of the day when I'm getting ready to leave, I close out of firefox, and it takes one of my duo core processors all the way to 100% and sit at the top of my processes in my Conky for 5-10 minutes before it finally closes. I've been googling for a couple days and have yet to come up with anything,

General :: Firefox Takes Forever To "look Up" Address?

Dec 22, 2010

I just got my gentoo system up, and it is very fast, except that when I use firefox, it takes forever to "lookup" the address. It eventually goes through. I am suspecting my resolv.conf file, but it is full of dns server addresses.

Fedora Installation :: Shrinking Of Windows XP Takes Forever In F14?

Apr 9, 2011

I hope somebody can find a solution for the following problem: I tried to install fedora 14 from the life cd on a Dell 6400 with windows XP already installed on it. During the installation process I wanted to shrink the ntfs partition of windows. The actual used size of the windows partition was well below the one I shrinked it to. But the shrinking takes forever ( + 7 hours ) and is still running, which does not seems normal to me. Any recommendations on how to proceed ( solve ) the problem? Processors are running at 99%, so it seems to perform some work. Can this process be cancelled, without harming the windows?

Ubuntu :: Shell Script Using Bash / Get The Date Of The Process Takes Longer Running?

Mar 29, 2010

I need show the number of process per user, and after the date of the oldest process per user also.

With "ps -eo user | sort -u" i get all users that are running any process. And with "ps U username | wc -l" i get the number of process that the user "username" is running.

But how can i merge both commands for do what i need? Like a FOR or something like that. There is any method of make a FOR using the list that i get with the first command?

And then for show the date of the oldest process.. with "ps U username | sort -k 4" (4 is TIME field) i can show the process of the user "username" sorting they by time. But how can i get the date of the process takes longer running?? I can get only the time, but no the date.

OpenSUSE Install :: Unmounting Filesystem At The Shutdown Process Takes Ages

Jul 11, 2011

when I am pressing the shut down button inside kde I receive this nice black screen with the green status messages indicating what was done successfuly. At the unmounting file systems though I have to wait for a 20-30mins duration to finished. I have two or three network shares but even a timeout would not take more than 1 min to appear.

Ubuntu Installation :: Firefox 5 Takes All Available Memory

Jul 22, 2011

a few months ago i did a fresh install of ubuntu 11.04 64-bits. it works perfectly. i'm using firefox 5.0, and in about it says mozilla firefox for ubuntu canonical 1.0.

every now and then, firefox behaves like a runaway train and starts using up all available memory, and using 100% processor time. this has been going on for a week or so. the only remedy is to kill firefox and restart it.

i'm not sure what causes this problem, but i am starting to suspect that it may be caused by flash, java, or some other plug-in or add-on that i have installed.

my add-ons are:
- adblock plus 1.3.9
- adblock plus pop-up addon 0.2.7
- delicious bookmarks 2.3.1
- delicious extension 2.3.1
- flash-aid 2.1.1
- global menu bar integration 1.0.6
- memory restart 1.4
- stumbleupon 3.91
- ubuntu firefox modifications 0.9.1

with the exception of memory restart 1.4 all these add-ons have been installed for a long time, without ever causing any problems. the problems started before installing memory restart.

my java version is icedtea, installed from the repository. i'm frequently using sweet home 3d (a java program) that runs without any problem. it doesn't make a difference whether i have sh3d running or not, the ff problem occurs regardless.

i also have installed ubuntu restricted extras version 43. videos videos don't cause problems. vimeo videos cause problems on occasion when switching to high definition and/or to full screen, but that is a known vimeo problem.

the problems certainly start when i don't use my computer for a longer period of time. i have disabled the screen saver/energy saver, but that doesn't seem to solve the problem. today i had the problem shortly after visiting a website, reason why i'm starting to suspect that the problem could be linked to some plug-in that website uses.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Takes 30 Second To Start , Used To Be Instant / Resolve This?

Oct 16, 2010

My Firefox used to start instantly, or at least near instant, but since yesterday it took about 30 sec to launch. Opening subsequent windows is near instant, but once all windows are closed it would take a long time to open again.

When I open it up in a terminal, it has absolutely no error message, clean start up and shutdown.

I turned up the CPU clock speed from 1.2GHz to 2.0GHz and it doesn't seem to help. Other programs starts fine too, so I kind of ruled out performance issue.

Yesterday I also tinkered with compiz settings and also installed the cairo dock and some media codecs. But I can't pinpoint when does it happen exactly, I also struggle to draw any relationship if there is any. And if it matters Firefox is 3.6.10 and Ubuntu is 10.04.

Software :: Firefox 3.6 Takes Whole Screen - No Controls

Mar 18, 2010

Firefox has taken the whole screen and has no controls top right to close or resize the window. Also it hides the panel at the bottom. Whenever hovering over something with a tooltip, the whole screen goes black for a fraction of a second. Otherwise it seems to operate normally.

Not cured by:
restarting FF
re-installing FF

FF 3.6.2
Arch + KDE 4.4
HP 8510W laptop / NVidia Quadro 570 with reasonable current NVidia official driver.

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.

Fedora Networking :: Connecting To FTP Error "Failed To Execute Child Process "/usr/lib/firefox-3.5/firefox" (No Such File Or Directory)"

Aug 3, 2009

I am running F11 and I want to mount an FTP, but when I try to connect to an ftp server using Places -> Connect to Server, or the bookmarks I made I get an error that says 'Failed to execute child process "/usr/lib/firefox-3.5/firefox" (No such file or directory)' and sometimes it mounts anyway, but most the time it doesn't, and it never connects to the folder I asked it to, I just have to open the mount and navigate to it. I figure this happened because Firefox upgraded to 3.5.1 and the folder is now /usr/lib/firefox-3.5.1/firefox, but I don't know how to update this so that it looks in the right location.

Software :: No Process (ps) For Iceweasel / Firefox

Feb 8, 2010

Iceweasel (basically same thing as Firefox) is running, with a couple of windows open.Most of the time I can issue ps -u myusername | grep fox and I get a process number for, I think firefox-bin. Something about firefox, anyway. But once in a while (like now), I'll need to kill Iceweasel because the sound is misbehaving, and ps -u myusername does not produce any lines containing "firefox". So there's no way to kill it! killall firefox-bin doesn't work either.

Like I said, weird. I tried ps -A and ps -e, but still no firefox listed. Also, top does not show any firefox process. How can this be? Oh yes, I did check for processes with "ice" in the name also.

General :: Single Process Firefox (Disable Fork)

Aug 31, 2010

I would like to run versions of Mozilla Firefox 3.6.5+ as a single process, just as it was in versions 3.6.3 and prior. The reason is that, on Linux, I am running within proxychains - which doesn't bind to forked processes. Because the plugins in versions 3.6.5+ run in a forked process I can't use proxychains to redirect Flash streams. Is there a setting in modern versions of Firefox that allow me to run plugins in the main process?

Slackware :: Can't Kill Firefox Process On Slack 12.0 (zombie)

May 27, 2010

Slack is 32bit. Frequently, firefox becomes unresponsive. I can close the window, but the process is not terminated. I am not able to restart firefox without rebooting.

When this problems occurs the firefox processes are not terminated by the 'kill' command. Example

tim@bart:/home/http/run/baker/cron$ ps aux | grep firefox
tim 3780 0.0 0.0 3356 1640 ? S 15:59 0:00 /bin/sh /usr/bin/firefox

CentOS 5 :: X/Gnome Takes Long Time To Load And Sudo Takes Long Time To Execute

Oct 13, 2009

I am running Centos 5.3. I ran no updates, performed no installs, nor changed any configuration immediately prior to this issue. My problem is this: when I run the command startx (default runlevel 3), it is a long time (5-10 minutes) before Gnome startx, and once it does start applications will not run. Also, when I try to use sudo (from any environment, even ssh), it is a long time (5-10) before the command is executed.

I cannot say for sure, but it seems like this is an intermittent problem. Sometimes X takes a long time to start, but once it starts it will launch programs. Sometimes X takes a long time to launch, but once it starts it will only launch certain programs. Though presently X always takes a long time to start, and I cannot successfully launch any programs.

A while back a had a similar problem to this (x taking long time to start, sudo taking long time to execute) and it ended up being a DNS problem. Unfortunately, I cannot remember exactly what it was and I stupidly did not document it. Maybe this is also DNS related, I don't know.

I don't know what log files to look at for problems with X, Gnome, and sudo taking a long time to start.

Ubuntu One :: Synchronizing Forever But Nothing Happens?

Oct 23, 2010

Am I the only person who can't get ubuntu one working properly?1) if I right-click a folder and ask to synchronize it to ubuntu one, there is absolutely no feedback at all (nothing seems to be synchronized, no icons are added to the folder, no progress bar, nothing).2) if I open the Ubuntu one preferences, it states "synchronizing in progress", and it keeps doing that. again; no progress, no icons, no nothing.Disconnecting reconnecting doesn't seem to matter.Rebooting (I know, I was desperate..) doesn't seem to matter.How do you guys manage to use this. I mean, the interface of ubuntu one is pretty clean, so there is not much to configure, which is good, if it would work out of the box .

Ubuntu :: Filesystem Manager Goes Forever?

Jul 4, 2010

I have a shared network folder on my server called torrents. It is a folder that I drop .torrent files into to start automatic downloading. When I navigated there from my Ubuntu PC (10.4) I was provided a nice shortcut on my desktop. I have no idea when the problem started but after I rebooted and logged in I noticed a "thing" on my desktop.

torrents on peter.volume <- peter is my server name. Places -> x-nautilus-desktop:///torrents on peter.volume <-also showing up.

I cannot delete I get The file is an unkown type.

Now if I navigate Places -> Network -> Peter (server) I can see the folder "torrents" If I click the folder to open I get a never ending number of "starting file manager" windows.

The other folders work just fine, its just this one.

Ubuntu :: Update Environment Variables Forever?

Apr 7, 2010

I've created a new environment variable and updated another one (PATH). I just want to save this changes once after reboot and forever. This is because I want to run a program (tecplot) just typing 'tec360' in the command line. If I create those new variable ( TEC_360_2008=/usr/tec360_2008 ) and update the PATH variable ( export PATH=$PATH:$TEC_360_2008/bin ) then bash detect the command 'tec360' and it runs my program. The problem is that this changes are not saved after rebooting.

According to the manual, I have to update the .bash_profile in my home directory but I don't have this file in this directory (neither in other directory). I only have .bash_history, .bash_logout and .bashrc in the home directory. I have updated .bashrc (typing . ./.bashrc) but it is not working.
