Firefox and Flashplayer9 problems


Thanks again for your help Tex... I got ff 2.0.0.3 from slackware mirror out of 11/extra directory or either from linuxpackages.net, can't remember which now but was definately from one or the other. That's the only places I get my .tgz files.

Probably some Flash9 bug. I have my firefox crash requlary when I browse flash sites using Firefox 1.5 or 2.0. It's quite irritating but atleast the 2.0 has the restore session feature.

That's odd. Flash never crashed my FF anymore. mplayerplug-in does tho. Must look for an alternative of some kind.

If you installed FF from the Slackware packages, it's probably using the plugins folder at '/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins'. Check in there and see if there is anything odd in there. Some plugin conflict or something.

I'm using FF from mozilla.org. Dunno if there is a difference. There shouldn't be if it was packaged correctly.

Basically, there's not too many things that could be wrong. See what I said earlier in this post.

Thanks for your assistance. I've checked the /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins directory and it had gxineplugin.so , libjavaplugin_oji.so, libmozsvgdec.la, libmozsvgdec.so, mplayerplug-in(-dvx,-qt,-rm,-wmp).so, and mplayerplug-in.so listed in that directory. FF isn't crashing right now. Did you (Tex) build ff from source or package.??
Zmyrgel, firefox continuously crashes if flash9 is in the plugins directory. Doesn't matter about restore, it will crash again and again for some reason/conflict. Hopefully the list of plugins above can help you guys help me and any body else who might have this problem. Thanks again for your help.

It looks ok. Can you run it in a terminal or console and see what error output it produces when it crashes ?

Sry to take so long to respond back. Yesterday wasn't all that great. I'd be glad to run ff in console/terminal to get crash message but, how do I go about doing so?? Do I just start ff from terminal then wait for output of errors?, or is there a particular place I need to look to find the error messages? I'm still new to this so plz bare w/ me.. thanks for your help!!

yes open a terminal like konsole or rxvt and run 'firefox' no quotes. It should exit with some error message.

Here are the error messages I get once I restarted ff w/ .xpt and .so files and .xpt is/was executable.

:~$ firefox restart
LoadPlugin: failed to initialize shared library /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/mplayerplug-in-dvx.so [libpangocairo-1.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory]

Hope this helps but I don't see anything related to flash in the error messages. The same messages come up when I removed the .xpt and .so files but ff works fine... no crashing.

you should install libpangocairo. Dunno if that will help but try it. It looks to me like the mplayerplug-in is what may be crashing it. Might wanna remove that and try without it.

Where would I find the libpangocairo file.?? Would I need to update pango?? I presently have pango 1.8.2 . FF works fine, no crashes, w/out the flash plugin/component even w/ the errors above. I had this problem w/ ff b4 I put mplayer on here last week. But didn't check for error messages then.

Thanks for all your help Tex

[Edit] Found libpangocairo file.. I upgraded my pango to 1.10.2 . I got the package at LinuxPackages.net . It was built w/ cairo in it. Will try it out to see if that helps or not..

So, did you remove the mplayerplug-in and try again ?

I didn't remove mplayer plugin but I tried to put the .xpt and .so files back in ~/.mozilla/plugins for .so and ~/.mozilla/components for .xpt. That didn't work. I start ff from terminal and an error came up about libcairo.so.2 where as b4 it was libpangocairo-1.0.so.0 . I will remove the mplayerplugins from the /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins directory and put the lib~.xpt and .so into their respective directories and see what happens.
Thanks again Tex.!!!

Also wish I can find out what is causing my network connection problem. It works for a bit then stops. I have to restart linux to get connection again. Sorry piece of winbloze..

Well Tex... that didn't work out either. I removed all mplayer plugins and put the flashplayer plugins in their proper directories as you said in earlier post. I restarted ff and it crashed after attempting to open different page than home. I did forget to try from terminal to see error messages though. That probably would've helped out. Any suggestions??

Thanks a lot for your help and patience..!!..

Yeah, try it from a terminal. Not sure why it's causing this much trouble. Surely there must be a cause.
