Firefox stability [Solved]

Postby Jajo » Thu Mar 19, 2009 16:13

hi, i'd like to know if firefox is so unstable only in my SL installation or if is a general issue.
i've SL4.r2 MCE and i updated firefox to 3.07 compiling with emerge, but still some pages make it crash..
what can i do?

PS: i'm on a amd64 machine with a x86_64 version of SL


I've just installed the 32 bit version of firefox..

its probably your addon / plugin combination, disable any you dont use

also try the 64bit flash, unistall nspluginwrapper emerge with USE="-32bit"

i'm gonna try the new flash plug for 64 bit but i don't know 'cause i tried to disable it (flash plugin) but i had no improvements..
ps: i've upgraded to 4.1 but still no changes

news: i unistalled flash and firefox is stable! now the question is: how to install flash 64bit as i put it in /opt/netscape/plugins , the directory written in pluginsreq.dat, but firefox doesn't see it...
