Firefox fails to start
 
Hi folks,

Ubuntu 7.04


Firefox fails to start finally after starting. This happens after removing Acrobat Reader download on Internet and reinstall it on repo.

On terminal;
$ firefox &
Code:

[1] 5467
satimis@ubuntu704:~$ ** Message: GetValue variable 1 (1)
** Message: GetValue variable 2 (2)

It hung here.

Ran;
$ strace -r firefox -x echo &> /tmp/log
It also hung here.

$ sudo tail /tmp/log

First, try to to run
strace -f -o log firefox
then copy log and search what 'open' or 'pipe' call returns file descriptor 63 (or whatever it is on the next run). It can be helpful.

Hi raskin,


Tks for your advice.

I can't find neither "open ..... 63" nor "pipe ..... 63". I found follow;
Code:

6146  write(3, "400 : Acroread Quitting\n", 24) = -1 EPIPE (Broken pipe)
6146  --- SIGPIPE (Broken pipe) @ 0 (0) ---

During starting Firefox, I noticed on the bottom bar "starting vmware.com". It hung there.


I can try;
$ mv /home/satimis/.mozilla to /home/satimis/temp.mozilla

to delete the cache. But I need to restoresessions because I have some websites under browsing. I haven't save their URL yet.

Any suggestion. TIA


B.R.

Look up any system call returning 63..
By the way look into sessionstore.js - it contains your session. Maybe it is really that some site breaks maybe even acroreader and this hangs FireFox...

What is the name of the system causing trouble? Tks.

Does the log end with unfinished read from descriptor 63? You need to search for descriptor in the unfinished call in the end. About session storing - what Firefox version do you use? The save file should be in ~/.mozilla/firefox/*.default/ . Maybe saved session is embedded in prefs.js .

I suppose it is the deleled "Acrobat Reader" causing the problem. The problem happened after its deletion. I still have "acroread" running on this box. It is download and installed on Ubunto repo

Pls explain in more detail? How to make such search? Tks.

Is this file? I can't print all output here because of limit on page-width. What I'm most interested are the websites being visited previously. I haven't saved their URL on file.

Well, run
grep http: -r ~/.mozilla

Also, I don't understand: if you start Firefox now, does it finally hang or just fail?

Firefox started finally but with blank pages displayed. I have several sessions with different webpages.

Looks like it lost your session.. Or did you move your profile folder before it started? You can grep http: there then. You can hope that every domain you visited has at least one entry in history.dat .

No, I did not remove session nor profile folder. I only removed the folder of "Acrobat Reader" and reinstall it on repo. Then it came to present situation.

I think on starting Firefox if choosing "new sessions" NOT "restoresession" Firefox may start. But I need to restart 5~6 webpages which I haven't closed on my last visit.

My problem is I can't recall the names of those URL.

You can just read the history.dat and check the sites mentioned there. Among them there are the pages you forgot.

Hi raskin,



Tks. I found it;
/home/satimis/.mozilla/firefox/477sc6yv.default/history.dat


I suppose there are hundreds of URL there. Is there anyway to find the last visited URL which were remaining on Firefox w/o closed? Tks


satimis

raskin 08-08-2007 05:43 AM

I guess Firefox thinks that the last visited URL's are now defined by the session when it ran with blank tabs..

I can't find anything there.

Selete "New Session" to start Firefox. It is working now. I think I need some time to discover the lost URLs which I'm interested.

Histtory -> Show in Sidebar
I found many URL there. In these 2 days I run Opera 9.22 to communicate outside World. Therefore there are many mixing history there.

Anyway tks again for your advice.
