I found how to fix it, replace libnss3.so that's in /usr/lib with the one that comes with FF8 in /usr/lib/firefox

then no errors, it was doing this this in the terminal
Code:
(firefox:22314): Pango-WARNING **: libthai.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

/usr/lib/firefox/plugin-container: /usr/lib/libnss3.so: version `NSS_3.12.10' not found (required by /usr/lib/firefox/libxul.so)
/usr/lib/firefox/plugin-container: /usr/lib/libnss3.so: version `NSS_3.12.9' not found (required by /usr/lib/firefox/libxul.so)

now it's all good Cool

I was having this problem with FF8 and under addons it showed two flashplayers installed, both 10 and 11 versions. Although i only had one libflashplayer.so in usr/lib/mozilla/plugins. I discovered that something had created an additional folder in usr/lib named flashplayer something or other. I do not remember the exact name, but it was right at the top alphabetically. Inside it were duplicates of all the plugins found in usr/lib/mozilla/plugins, except it had the 10 version of flashplayer and apparently FF8 was reading it. I deleted this entire flashplayer folder from usr/lib and now FF8 is running good and flash content runs good too. I have not had any issues with the libnss3.so issue mentioned by Geoffrey, however i will do that next if i have more issues with FF8.

Thanks good that you shared your experience and actions.
I still have 7.01 or something due to not have booted up
but next time it most likely do the upgrade automatically.
So it is good to know there are solutions to try.

I am currently running Lucid 5.28 update 002 on an Acer Aspire One D255. I experienced the following issues when I permitted Firefox to upgrade to 8.0.

Firefox restarted with the upgrade and loaded the default home page.

Firefox crashed while attempting to load the index page for this forum.

I was unable to resolve the issue at that time.

After reading this thread I created a fresh save file. I installed Firefox 7 from the repo and then permitted it to upgrade to 8.0 with the following results.

Firefox 8.0 worked out of the box. I did launch it from console and received a bug message:

Quote:
WARNING: Application calling GLX 1.3 function "glXCreatePixmap" when GLX 1.3 is not supported! This is an application bug!


At this point in the test Firefox 8.0 is working quite well.

It should be noted that /usr/lib/mozilla/ folder has no flashplayer plugin of any kind. Libflashplayer.so is absent from the plugins folder and there are no extra folders.

I installed flashplayer 11 from a .pet file. It placed libflashplayer.so in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins. It did not seed any duplicate files.

I started Firefox 8.0 and it crashed trying to load the forum index page. I received a message when launching Firefox from console identical to the one posted by Geoffrey above regarding wrong version of libnss.so.3.

I followed his instructions and copied libnss.so.3 from /usr/lib/firefox to /usr/lib. This corrected the issue.

I am posting from Firefox 8.0 now.

I have noted that flash does seem a bit slow but there is evidence that my network has slowed down a bit over the last few days.

Geoffrey,

re: libnss3.so

Thank you very much. That fixed it here too. Lucid 5.11

nooby,

I don't know about flash but it fix's the hang it had loading pages, I did the same with my laptop thats running Fluppy 13
though it has the error message
Code:
WARNING: Application calling GLX 1.3 function "glXCreatePixmap" when GLX 1.3 is not supported! This is an application bug!

but it at lest runs firefox8 with some speed now, I'm just waiting for the next update now that will fix any other problems,
I found the fix on the firefox help, someone else posted a solution, so they are at lest aware of it now.

Lupu525 also needs the libnss3.so trick. Thanks for pointing this out. As long as it is only a matter of a library search order, another solution is to place a simple wrapper instead of the /usr/bin/firefox symlink:
Code:
#!/bin/sh

ff_dir="/usr/lib/firefox"

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="${ff_dir}:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH"
exec "${ff_dir}"/firefox "$@"

Or we can use run-mozilla.sh but it gives an error when started without parameters.

I was ready to give up on good old Firefox. It just hangs, and that's no good.

Thanks for the suggestions Geoffrey. I'll get to it later on and see if that works for me, but going on what you said, it sounds like I had the same problem.

Today, it's the Opera for me.

Wouldn't you know it, the wife asked me why can't I watch youtubes on the laptop.

Mmmm, that the one with the
Code:

I put 7.01 back on it until I can find a fix for flash, unless someone knows of one already.

It's not that we are intent, it's the fact that it want's to upgrade, so we do.

By all rights it should be better software, but even the experts get it wrong sometimes.
