Web browser problems


Hi. New to the forum but not really to linux. I am having issues with my browsers(yes more than one, Mozilla, Firefox, and Konqueror) crashing and randomely closing. I've been searching Google and Yahoo for a while with no help thus far. It's not always on the same pages. Sometimes the browsers will close as soon as I try to bring up a web page and sometimes I can be browsing for a half an hour or so then it will close. Konqueror closes with debug info(which by the way is totally foreign looking to me) and Mozilla and firefox just close with no info as of why. Right now, Firefox won't even open, it tries but I just get the waiting icon and the it just stops and never opens. I'm baffled and would appreciate any help. Thanks. Using Suse 10 (store bought) with KDE 3.4.2. Browsers also crash in GNOME so I don't think it's a problem in KDE.

I see you're using a 64bit version of linux and (at least) of konqueror. Did you by any chance install 'by hand' (just copying the files in the plugins directory) 32 bit versions of some plugins (like flash, java...) in your 64 bit browser ?

If I'm heading in the good direction.... replace those plugins by their 64 bit counter part if possible or install the 32 bit version of browser to use the 32 versions of plugins (this last choice will be the only possible at the moment if your need flash for example).

OK after some fiddling I uninstalled Firefox and Mozilla with yast and installed the 32 versions of both. Still getting same problems. Firefox worked for a little bit then it started closing on its own again, and now it doesn't even open. I tried starting it from prompt and it gets a "line 251 6xxx segmentation fault". When I open Mozilla from the prompt, it will randomely close at different times, i.e. it won't always close at the same URL, sometimes at Myspace.com login attempt, and sometimes it will get past that point and close when trying to open a profile, but then again sometimes it won't. I get a "line 259 6xxx segmentation fault" from console when running Mozilla. Anyone have any ideas?

P.S. Konqueror is still doing the same thing. It even did it on this site once. I'm baffled. If I remember correctly, I was having similar browser problems on my old Red Hat ELWS3 setup. Don't know if its a plugin problem or nat since it's not always when a plugin is being called.

Posted this in another thread with no response Is my issue due to needing a VLZ media player which from my reading does'nt exist for SuSe 10.0. Not sure if that is my issue, doesn't sound like it would be fixed in 10.1 from what I am reading.
