Hi RetroTechGuy,

I have 418 M free space on my lupusave file, so I don't think the issue is due to that.

On another PC I had the same issues as Tman with FF 10 and this forum. It seemed to freeze but after 30 or 60 seconds it opened the forum page. It really seems to be a problem of FF 10.

So let's wait for FF 11...

Firefox-11.0 has been uploaded for testing. I have not tested it thouroughly, but so far it appears to be much more stable than version 10. Also, Firefox-9 has been removed, as it was also somewhat prone to crashing.

I re-uploaded Firefox-11.0-official, with a few tweaks:

- Fixed a problem with the icon not showing in Icewm
- added "killall firefox" to /usr/bin/run_firefox

Just wanted to post and thank you folks for the hard work - just did a fresh install of Puppy on my tinker box a few weeks ago and had installed the FF7 package and then let it update itself - ran into that "hangs for awhile on loading pages" bug and it was driving me crazy. Read another thread on how to fix it and that eventually led me here.

Uninstalled the FF7 package, installed your FF11 package and bam...issue solved! Smile

Cheers!

EDIT: ...and apparently I lied. Just went to use the machine again and it is still doing the "hanging on loading pages" issue Sad

Darkstrike, trying uninstalling the Firefox 11 pet and remove the saved settings when it asks you to. Then reinstall the pet. This should give a clean install.
Firefox 11 has been stable for me on my system builds, but I am interested to know what websites the "hanging" problems occur for you on your system, and with which version of puppy.
Also, changing some of the preference settings may improve performance for you. I always disable the crashreporter, history, and automatic updates in Firefox.

Anyone make an SFS of Firefox-11 with Flash installed ?

This would seem to be the best of the best. Quick install, try it, and removal if needed.
And the big plus... It does not take up Save file space !!!

My firefox pets use a puninstall.sh script to clean leftover files when you uninstall the pet. Sfs files don't have this option, so you will have to manually clean up the bits and pieces after the sfs is unloaded. For example. see the /root/.mozilla/firefox folder.

-- How to convert pets into sfs files --

The link above shows you how to combine multiple pets into 1 sfs, but it will work with single pets too...just name the sfs file, something slightly different than the pet during the building process. You can rename the sfs to whatever you like after the process is complete.

Hi Tman - it seems to hang on almost any page I go to except a few (your basic www.google.ca / www.google.com, etc. for example doesn't hang)...I'm wondering if it has to do with sites that contain flash content...? The browser will enter a "not responding" state for 10+ seconds and then WILL eventually load the page, and the page will be fine after that...it's only during the initial load that it acts up. Once a page loads it works flawlessly.

As for removing the saved settings, I had done that manually as well as doing so when the FF11 pet prompted, so those settings should have been removed. I like having the latest version of FF so automatic updates are currently enabled (although I might disable that). However, I always have had history disabled as I never really use it and it just wastes space. The system is: 1.5ghz AMD AthlonXP 1800+, 512mbs RAM, 10gb HDD, 64mb Nvidia Quadro 2 Pro video card. The puppy version is Lucid 5.28 (the downloaded ISO that came with the 004 update preinstalled).

Just installed 11.0 official--looks good so far, and I'm using it right now--but I have one "newbie-like" question, if anyone would like to answer it. I saved the bookmark backups, but I'm not readily seeing how to restore bookmarks from backups. Can anyone tell me quick, or would it be better to read the [fine] manual?

Pretty easy Smile

Bookmarks menu / Show All Bookmarks / Import And Backup / Restore -> Choose File ->browse to directory of file

All of the above assuming you had saved your backup as a .json file and not an HTML....if HTML, the import button is there for that too...hope that helps! Smile

darkstrike,

I removed Lucid from my system in favour of Exprimo. Saluki and PupStudio are the only other pups that I have installed.

I've brainstormed that some possible reasons for your problem are:

- Firefox is conflicting with some other apps you've installed
- This Firefox pet is not compatible with your version of Lucid
- You got a corrupted download
- Firefox is somehow conflicting with your hardware

Some things for you to try:

1) Check the MD5 checksum to make sure you didn't get a corrupted download:
95277fef1e1641f5d00ef9c178f5eb4d Firefox-11.0-official.pet

2) In Lucid, try running in pfix=ram mode and install my Firefox-11 pet to see if it still hangs. If it hangs then it is Firefox. If it doesn't hang, then my conclusion would be software conflicts

3) In Lucid, try again in pfix=ram with Playdayz's Firefox pet. If Playdayz's version works, then my Firefox pet has issues with Lucid.

4) Try Lucid and my Firefox on another computer (if available) to see what happens. If it works then there is some problem with Firefox and your hardware setup (or software configuration for your hardware).

Ok, thanks for the suggestions - I can say that it did work perfectly with FF7 before I updated to FF11 if that gives you any more ideas...?

@darkstrike,

please start firefox from a console; I think I had the issue you mentioned and it was coming from a incompatible https library. Once I fixed that, the problem went away. I don't remember exactly what I fixed, but if you give me the error message from your console, it might ring a bell.

Tman; SFS files could have and use the same cleanup script more or less.
There`s fewer things to clean up with the SFS of course, config. files mainly.
In fact the /root/.mozilla/firefox folder may be the only thing to clean up.

I noticed that you do have an SFS of Firefox-7, I`ll try it and Firefox-11.
