Problem re Mozilla hanging on screen
 
Hi all folks,

RH9.0
KDE

While running Mozilla to browse Yahoo, the screen hanged.

# ps x

could not find Mozilla there

xxx ttys1 Sx.xx mozilla

to execute

# kill -9 xxx

I was compelled to relogin to close it. Kindly advise is there an alternative to close Mozilla avoiding relogin.

Thanks in advance.

B.Regards
satimis

What I usually do is one of two things. You can run:

top

and then sort by Memory usage by typing 'M'. On my machine Mozilla is usually using a lot of memory so it comes up with sort by memory usage command. Then you can find the pid and kill it.

You could also try:

ps -aux | grep Mozilla

or

ps -aux | grep mozilla

and find the pid that way.

Hi,

Thanks for your advice.

# top
and searching with "M" could not find "Mozilla" pid

# ps -aux|grep Mozilla
root 4806 0.0 0.2 3572 628 pts/2 S 00:52 0:00 grep Mozilla

I suppose "628" being the pid of Mozilla.

Hi,

Try issuing a "killall mozilla-bin"

This always works for me.
