[SOLVED] Firefox crashes on image download

Post by laplume » 7. Jul 2018, 12:14

Hello All,
I am just experiencing a minor annoyance on most recent esr Firefox update 52.9.0. (on Salix 14.0 32 bit). When I try to download an image from a site (deviantart.com or whatever) browser freezes and Mozilla bug report window appears.I am forced to close application from terminal since browser is not responding anymore.
I have already cancelled .mozilla folder in my /home (with sync acivated I was up and running as usual in a few minutes) but to no avail. This has happened just with the most recent firefox update.
Midori is installed aside and works as usual, so this behaviour must be firefox specific.
Thanks and in advance for any suggestion/tips to fix that. Not a big deal anyway but a bit annoying.
Cheers,
Antonio

Have you tried disabling sync and any addons / extensions?

Hello,
run firefox from terminal, this maybe show the error.

Maybe some problem with gtk3 and "Settings schema 'org.gtk.Settings.FileChooser' is not installed" ?

Regards

Hello All,
I had made an attempt with add-ons disabled but ket having the problems.
Seems something related with setting File chooser settings.
I have launched firefox from terminal, tried to download the image from deviantart.com, browsers hangs and terminal gives following output:

(firefox:2974) Glib-GIO-ERROR **: Settings schema 'org.gtk.Settings.FileChoser' is not installed
ExceptionHandler:GeneratedDump cloned child 3122

ExceptionHandler:SendContinueSignalToChild sent continue signal to child
ExceptionHandler:WaitForContinueSignal waiting for continua signal

Is there any way to fix that?
Thanks
Rgds

Try
run it as root:
/usr/bin/glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/
