View Full Version : [lubuntu] all browsers crash in LUbuntu 12.10 32-bit
December 12th, 2012, 10:46 PM
I'm using LUbuntu at home and can't get any browser to work - crashes within few seconds. It started after i've tried to install google voice plugin thru .deb packet.
What i've already tried:
- reinstalled firefox and chrome
- reinstalled flash (tried nspluginwrapper too)
- removed google plugin (
sudo apt-get --purge remove google-talkplugin)

Pehaps it is a RAM problem. When you boot, hit ESC at the GRUB screen and call up memtest86. If that doesn't run clear, you may have bad RAM.

Have a very similar problem, with Lubuntu 12.10 on Toshiba AC100. After performing several upgrades every browser has become very unstable, namely:
 Chromium and xxxterm work partially: I can search on google or write this post but going to youtube or most websites crashes immediately.
 Firefox crashes when immediatly when starting.
First thought it was an AC100 related issue, but Oh-la-la post makes me think it could be more general. Don't think it has to do with RAM since everything was okay before I made the upgrades. Thanks for your help, and please ask for any precision.

When adding "enable_scripts=0" to /home/myhome/.xxxterm.conf I experience no crash anymore in xxxterm browser.
Don't know how to go further, that is 1) disable scripts in Firefox or Chromium (no use for me), 2) understand where the problem comes from, and 3) have scripts working in any browser.

Try Midori - it works fast and is very stable on Toshiba AC100.

I have a simular issue. Chromium works fine using 12.04 but I get errors "he's dead jim" using 12.10 or 13.04.

You guys should post RAM specs, this is a very unusual problem never dealt with it. I was running Lubuntu 12.04 32 bit before running 12.10 64 bit now browsers work fine for me. The fact that Midori works for you leads me to believe that you have very low RAM as Chromium especially takes a good bit of RAM to run.

In my case Midori crashes too; it shuts down whenever I try to access a page, let's say just google. My RAM usage is low so I don't believe that's the issue. In summary, neither Firefox, Chrome nor Midori work at all. xxxterm work decently but is very unstable. Please let me know any further information I could provide in order to identify the problem.

Running the browsers in a terminal will spawn some outputs that can help.
Also, I don't know about Chromium, but try launching Firefox in safe mode and see if it helps:

Thanks for your answer. Please see terminal copy below: every browser crashes before showing anything.
ae@ae:~$ firefox -safe-mode
[1:1:56061534:ERROR:nss_util.cc(692)] Failed to load NSS libraries.

The weird point is that when I launch them from the menu the behavior is different. For example I am presently on xxxterm and it works. Firefox would show a restore page and crash whatever I do. Chromium would show that "he's dead Jim" whatever I do. Midori never shows anything.
