Firefox 3.5 on open SUSE 10.3 does not work
 
I have a very weird problem. I have been using firefox 3.0.4 x86_64 on openSUSE 10.3 with no major problem. Recently it caused some cpu overhead while I am watching TV shows on Hulu. So i decided to upgrade firefox to see if it can solve the problem. I used software manager to update it to 3.5 x86_64. At the end of the update it gave me some error but didn't pay attention to and closed it. Since then firefox cannot grab webpages. It just shows a blank page. Any idea what the problem is and how to fix it? I tried uninstall and installed it again a couple of times but no luck.

I appreciate any help.

Maybe next time you should pay attention. The only suggestion I can make is to uninstall it and then reinstall it, this time paying attention to the error message. They're usually put there to help you figure out how to fix things.

Thanks for the reply but you better read carefully.
I already mentioned that I uninstalled and installed a couple of times with no luck.

Do you still get the error messages?

I don't see the same error.
Frankly I don't even know if the error was because of firefox installation.
While I was installing 3.5 I was surfing the web and a window popped up.
So I just closed it even without reading the head. :(
So far i have tried are followings;
Uninstalled 3.xx x86_64 version of firefox and installed 2.0.xx x86_64. Version 2.0.xx works fine. No problem. So I updated to 3.0.11 but doesn't work. No error during update but even 3.0.11 does not work anymore. Updated to 3.5 again while 3.0.11 is installed. Does not work.
It seems completely broken now.

Does firefox start?
What is the exact problem?

simjii 07-11-2009 01:15 PM

Firefox does start but even if I enter URL it does not do anything.
Just blank page. No error message what so ever. I can load html files stored on my computer.

proxy settings?
enable work online?

simjii 07-11-2009 01:43 PM

It is not those problems.
No proxy and it is enabled to work online.

Well, I have a work around.
Some how firefox 3.0.x and 3.5.x x86_64 version do not work on SUSE 10.3 but 32 bit versions work fine.
I guess I have to stick with 32bit version untill I upgrade to a newer version of SUSE.
It seems there is no more cpu overhead with firefox 3.5 and flash plugin 10.
