Two issues with Firefox
« on: June 13, 2018, 02:15:37 am »
I have two issues with Firefox.
I have also reported this to Mozilla/Firefox, but they cannot find the cause, so maybe it is a Peppermint issue rather than a Firefox issue.

I run Swedish localized versions of both Peppermint 7 and 8.
Peppermint 7 on a laptop and Peppermint 8 on two different desktops.

Issue #1:
Firefox suddenly crash without any good reason, just by visiting a web page.

Issue #2:
When updating Firefox, the Swedish UI disappear. I.e. all menues will be in English, even though the Swedish language pack is installed.
I have figured out a work-around, by downloading the Swedish Firefox from https://www.mozilla.org/sv-SE/firefox/all/
extracting it to a folder, copying all of its contents (as root), and paste/overwrite it in the folder usr/lib/firefox.
Then Firefox is in Swedish, until next update, because the issue repeats itself at next update, and the same work-around solves it again.

I run Manjaro Linux on another laptop without these issues. That is why it might be a Peppermint issue rather than a Firefox issue.

You could launch firefox from the terminal and check for any error messages upon crash.
At least this could give us something to start with?

Can you test something for me ?

Open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo pluma /etc/linuxmint/adjustments/15-mintsystem-desktop.overwrite
REMOVE these 3 lines
Code: [Select]
/usr/lib/peppermint/adjustments/ddg.xml /usr/lib/firefox/distribution/searchplugins/locale/en-US/ddg.xml
/usr/lib/peppermint/adjustments/ddg.xml /usr/lib/firefox/distribution/searchplugins/locale/en-GB/ddg.xml
/usr/lib/peppermint/adjustments/distribution.ini /usr/lib/firefox/distribution/distribution.ini
SAVE the file, and exit the text editor.

Now reinstall the version of Firefox frfom the default repositories:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install --reinstall firefox
and let us know if the problem still occurs ?

If that works it'd be helpful if you're up for a bit of other testing to figure out which of those 3 files is causing the problem (?)

[EDIT]

BTW, welcome to the forum :)

Thanks for the welcome :)

Well, I followed this procedure (removed all three lines) and again I ended up with an English UI.
I had to do the work-around again to get the Swedish UI back.

And here is a recording of a similar crash, visiting another site, with a previous version of Firefox:

Does disabling hardware acceleration in Firefox make any difference ?

Hej Hans!
Does this only happen on pages with sound/video?

Hörs!

I don't know.
The screen clip is  www.tradera.com
It has happened on  www.eBay.com  and  swedbank.se  and several more.

Now I have got into new problems.

Yesterday evening I changed to a widescreen monitor.
I used to have a 4:3 monitor.
It worked fine, yesterday.
This morning, after logging in to Peppermint, the monitor goes to sleep, or turns off.
I can't see anything now.
Is there a way to reset the monitor settings in Peppermint, from the boot DVD ?

I use Firefox on 4 different laptops without any issues? Although, my systems are not in Swedish.
Are your systems fully updated?

Please create another thread for your other issue. Otherwise, it will easily get a bit messy for other to find the solutions.

Tack!

Yes, I always update, as soon as there are updates available.
So, it is updated. Unless there are new updates today that I can't see because of the new monitor problems.


The monitor settings problem is now posted here:

Back on topic...
Are you having this firefox issue on all the three systems or just one of them?

Both crash and localization problems on all Peppermint systems (i.e. all three systems).

This is a bit strange to be honest...
My machines: PM7 on a laptop locals set to English - No issues
                          Void Linux musl-libC - No issues (there are no locals on musl-libC, that's only English)
My daughter's machine: Bodhi Linux, based on Ubuntu 16.04, so the same as PM7, locales set to French both on the PC and firefox - No issues (firefox update just a couple of days ago)
