Everywhere but the actual webpage is transparent in the firefox window. I can't really see the main toolbar with file, edit, tools, etc. It crashes when I try to click add-ons in the tools drop down menu. It also makes my computer run slower and freeze up. Thinking it could be a bug from a recent update not sure because I think it started after tabking or another add-on was updating. I'm using firefox through wine right now. Using Ubuntu 9.10.
I recently upgraded (via Ubuntuzilla) to firefox 3.5.7 and now, every single time I close Firefox, the program seems to crash without quitting completely.
First, I receive an error saying that the program will not close and asks me if I want to Force Quite or Wait for it to close on its own. This has been happening ever since I upgraded to Karmic and if I just wait it usually quits fully after a couple seconds.
Now what happens is this: the window still closes, but if I try to reopen Firefox then I get this error stating that Firefox is already open and therefore cannot be opened again. The only way to get back into Firefox is to restart the entire computer. (Incidentally, this is the same problem that occurs whenever I try to Force Quit Firefox)
This now happens every single time I "close" Firefox.
Does anyone know the source of this error? Or a workaround?
I just installed firefox and flash-plugin.The version of firefox is 3.0.10, package is firefox-3.0.10-1.el5.centos.The version of flash-plugin is 10.0.22.87, package is flash-plugin-10.0.22.87-1.el5.rf.But firefox crashes when there is flash in web page, unless disable flash plugin in firefox.
I am running Ubuntu 10.04, up to date, 32 bits. I tried to open a huge (10.000 x 1.200 pixels approx) Wikipedia image, and everything crashed. Nor Firefox, Gnome or anything else responded from there. Not even ctrl+alt+del, ctrl+alt+backspace, alt+F2, etc. Only the mouse moves, but rather slowly.
This is the image:
I could NOT replicate the problem with Chromium. However, I am not sure if the issue is only firefox since it locks up everything in ubuntu.
Recently my Firefox 5.0 started to crash randomly. This morning, it crashed twice within three minutes. I believe that it crashes mostly during loading something (such as a new tab), but it can also just crash when nothing is being done to it. I can be reading one page of text and it crashes. When it crashes, there is a "Submit a report" thing. When I click Restart Firefox, it doesn't. What I can think of is the use of Flash-aid and the addition of a 4GB bar of RAM. I re-executed Flash-aid because 1080p full-screen was choppy (still is). I don't think it is a Flash problem since with Gnash, Firefox also crashes. The RAM bar is a Lexar 4GB DDR3 SODIMM 1066-1333MHz. All other programs run correctly. I have re-installed Firefox, Firefox-branding and such in Synaptic. Still crashes.
Sometimes, when browsing the internet with FireFox, the entire system freezes. The only thing I can do is moving the mouse pointer,I can't use the Run command or anything else.It usually happens after a stand-by.
Anyway, I installed Ubuntu normally. Whenever I try to run Firefox for the first time, it loads for a bit, then it crashes. Every time. I tried reinstalling it, and the isntallation was fine. I managed to connect properly. But it won't run.
I just updated to Firefox 3.5.8. I experience constant crashes with some websites. Does anyone here have the same problem ? How can I go back to the previous version? System: Karmic Koala on a MacBook 2.1
I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 and, when using Hulu, if I try and enter Fullscreen Mode, Firefox crashes to the desktop. Is this a known bug? Is there a fix for it? Any idea what could be causing it? I'm using fglrx for my integrated ATI card, by the way, but the standard open-source drivers made video choppy, and I had the same problem with Hulu.
The problem is random but reproducible: go to http://www.tvbythenumbers.com/, navigate around for a while, click some links...eventually firefox (3.6.3 on 10.04) will crash. I tried running firefox from the command line, but all it says is 'Segmentation fault' with no details. What can I do to diagnose this?
I think this case is pretty funny, as I have been using xubuntu for a couple of months - without a single crash or freeze. The first time it freezes is when I am looking through the GNU.org art gallery - [URL] - see link to the exact page in the next post. Not only firefox froze. The whole xfce environment + mouse + keyboard froze; with no other way out than making a hard reboot and starting firefox in safe-mode and tjecking off the tab with the gnu gallery art. The graphics on the screen was messed up when it crashed the second time. I'm wondering how firefox would be able to make the whole desktop environment and keyboard input freeze.. I have run the page, 'GNU o Lantern' again, which causes the freeze. The reason why I have posted this under Desktop Environments is that Firefox causes my Desktop Environment to freeze.
Using 11.04 / firefox 5 / chromium 12 whenever i go to 4OD in firefox, i get this dialogue box pop up (see attached) and occasionally the browser crashes. whatever choice i make in the box, the website is sluggish. same sluggishness in chromium, but no pop up box problem only occurs on this website whats happening / how to stop it ?
I don't know what happened, but this happened in openSuSE 11.2 as well. Now when I try to view any media that involves the flash plugin, FireFox crashes. I've reinstalled the flash-plugin multiple times. I've tried downgrading to FireFox 3, but 3.5 always remains. I installed some software last night, but it didn't conflict with anything on my system. Is there some form of bug with the new flash? Is there a functionality time-bomb, that kills itself after a while?
I saw that someone else was having issues with flash freezing FireFox.
Here is some system info: CPU - AMD Athlon 64 3200+ 2GHz Video - ATi 2400HD chipset (MSI RX2400Pro) Audio - Ensoniq PCI card RAM - 2GB DDR1
Most solutions I found were for problems with the Firebug extension (which I don' have) or for problems with fullscreen flash (which is not the case).Firefox 3.6.8, fully updated Lucid 64bit When started from terminal, it sometimes outputs an exception at startup, then nothing, then "Killed" before crashing. As below:
I have a strange problem with my browser(s), even Epiphany....when I go to my music site [URL] then log in, go to my page and click on link to play a song the browser Crashes. It never did this before and I dont know what I could have done to cause this. It only does this on this website. Could it be that they use a Quicktime plugin to play the music? I don't know cause I used to be able to play music on there before. It doesnt do this on my Reverbnation site page, just Icompositions. If I click on the icon to restart browser a box comes up saying "we're sorry"...your browser crashed for no apparent reason.....and offers a choice to either reload the page (that repeatedly crashes) or start new session. It isn't a big deal but this never used to happen before. Could it be some bad code on that website?
I noticed this issue was brought up back in 2005, but because that thread was in the "archives" I couldn't reply to it. Any time I right click on anything that has flash, my browser goes grey and is unresponsive. I'm forced to force quit Firefox. I'm still in the process of making sure this bug hasn't already been reported in 2010.OS: Ubuntu 10.10 MaverickGnome 2.32.0Browser: Firefox 3.6.12Flash: File: npwrapper.libflashplayer.soVersion: Shockwave Flash 10.1 r102 Installed from restricted extras in repos
After I updated the Ubuntu on my Lenovo S10 netbook from 10.04 to 10.10 Firefox crashes when I try to open it. I tried uninstalling it and installing it again (with the add / remove software function) so I thought I would have a "plug-in free" Firefox - but it still crashes. At the moment I am using Chromium - but I want Firefox back - so what do I do ?
I upgraded from Ubuntu 10.10 64bit to 11.04 64bit. When trying to launch Firefox from any area (launcher, menu and terminal) It crashes the moment it tries to start. This only happens in the new Unity UI. Switching back to Ubuntu Classic, Firefox runs just fine. Here is the message I get when starting Firefox from the terminal:
Already in Ubuntu 10.10 I faced some odd behaviour after the login, e.g. the icons for maximizing or closing were gone, but after reloading with compizfusion icon, they appeared back (for both compiz and metacity).
After the update to 11.04, certain applications just crashes permanently after some time, like Firefox, Synaptic or Libreoffice (now gone). Additionally the screen shows sometimes orphaned pixel or logs out completely.
I'm using an Intel graphic cards from the notebook Hp 2740p. I couldn't find any errors in the log viewer and also a fresh install of Ubuntu 11.04 in Unity and Gnome as well in Linux Mint, couldn't solve the problem. I also deleted config folders from my homefolder, like .gnome, .gconf, etc. to see if there would be a change. But this strange behaviour still persists.
As I setup a new user the behaviour was gone for sometime, but came finally back after some days, without messing around with any configurations.
