Banshee & Firefox...


Hi, it's me again
Maybe not a major problem this time, or maybe just a bug, or something...
anyway:
Whenever I start Banshee and Firefox is already running, Banshee is killing Firefox...
Any idea why does it happen?

I suspect it's a GTK issue. Run Firefox from a terminal and then run Banshee as you would normally, when FF dies it should give some sort of error in the terminal. Post it here so we can see what's happening.

Odd, but not unheard of. Personally, I would continue running the two apps in this way, maybe a particular website causes it, maybe there's a third program that needs to run to cause it, but if you keep gathering data for a while you'll be ready if it happens.

It's possible a software update has fixed the problem without you realising it.

Ok, so I have tried it again today, and Firefox crashed...
that's what was shown in terminal:

Flash Player: Warning: environment variable G_FILENAME_ENCODING is set and is not UTF-8
Flash Player: Warning: environment variable G_FILENAME_ENCODING is set and is not UTF-8
Flash Player: Warning: environment variable G_FILENAME_ENCODING is set and is not UTF-8
Flash Player: Warning: environment variable G_FILENAME_ENCODING is set and is not UTF-8
Flash Player: Warning: environment variable G_FILENAME_ENCODING is set and is not UTF-8
/usr/bin/firefox: line 208: 4134 Segmentation fault $MOZ_PROGRAM "$@"


Yesterday FF didn't crash, but it was a little bit unstable, and I got many lines about Flash Player, and a line like that:

(gecko:4153): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_drag_set_icon_default: assertion `GDK_IS_DRAG_CONTEXT (context)' failed

somewhere in the middle...

Are you running the latest Flash Player? I have heard of people having issues with the newest build and finding that by downgrading they increase stability....


BTW - if you are Enter_Slackgirl, why are you running OpenSuse? Not one of those heretics are you?

That is because when I started using Linux it was Slackware... and it was few years ago. That's when I joined the forum. I wouldn't mind changing my nick to Enter_Susegirl (lol), but I don't think it's possible... :P

In Firefox, type aboutlugins to the address bar and find your Flash installation. For example, I have the latest version and it shows
Code:
Shockwave Flash

    File name: libflashplayer.so
    Shockwave Flash 9.0 r115

If you feel really really strongly about it and it is severely damagaing your online reputation, drop an email to Jeremy and ask for a name change. It's rare that he makes a change though.

Or you could just show off your geekery and point out that Suse used to be based on Slack.

Well, my FlashPlayer version is the same like yours:
File name: libflashplayer.so
Shockwave Flash 9.0 r115

And about my nickname... it's just a nickname, I don't mind it like that. I could create a new account after all, when I rejoined the forum.
I might e-mail Mr. Jeremy if it gets too annoying thou
oh, and the fact that Suse used to based on Slackware helps hehe
