Iceweasel still has many Gtk and Gdk errors

Postby George Langford » 2009-07-14 15:10

Recently I started this thread:
[quote]http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=40721[/quote]

Iceweasel isn't crashing as often now (through no action of mine) while I'm browsing, searching *Bay, answering webmail, etc.

However, several times over the last few weeks I've had nasty situations develop wherein the cursor goes wild, opening random webpages, scurrying all over the screen, etc. This has forced me to kill Iceweasel several times.

This morning it happened once again while I was running an Iceweasel session from a terminal. Alas, I lost the specific error message, but I caught on that the cursor problem was not the dust mite that I had been blaming, but instead has something to do with the other Gtk and Gdk error messages that I've been able to record.

Here are some typical messages from a couple of later Iceweasel sessions:

Session 1 - Just webmail, with a few Google searches:

Session 2 - *Bay searches - one of which produced the three error messages quoted below:

[/quote]

Several questions come to mind:
1. Why am I getting firefox errors in an Iceweasel session ? (Yeah, yeah, I've heard all about _those_ politics ...)
2. What's going on with Gtk and Gdk ? I'm not knowingly using any of the programs that are listed by "apropos Gtk" or "apropos Gdk."
3. Should I be looking for a program that weeds out intrusive scripts ? Shouldn't Iceweasel have such a function available ?

As before: Running debian/lenny on a desktop PC.

Astute readers will note that there is a pattern in three of the four quoted sets of error messages.

Again, more errors:
Session 3 - just opening my Spamcop webmail and reading a message or two:

Just an observation - note the repetitious pattern of error messages.

No GTK errors and no problems while running Iceweasel but opening it from a terminal does give:

Which looks more like some weird error having to do with video and perhaps ram. Maybe having to do with using prelink?
This is on sid with iceweasel 3.5 with a liquorix kernel, but it shows the same errors on a debian kernel as well.

Re: Iceweasel still has many Gtk and Gdk errors

Postby craigevil » 2009-07-21 12:34

From a google search it seems this is NOT a debian issue, but rather with firefox in general as other distros that use firefox are seeing these things.

Arch Linux Forums / Firefox - GLib-GObject-WARNING **: IA__g_object_weak_unref .....
That problem persists with Firefox 3.5.1 :
I get hundreds of
(firefox:4922): Gdk-WARNING **: XID collision, trouble ahead
and

Re: Iceweasel still has many Gtk and Gdk errors

It's amazing to see Firefox/Iceweasel reaching 1 billion downloads while being so unstable.

Gdk-ERROR **: The program 'firefox-bin' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadAccess (attempt to access private resource denied)'.
(Details: serial 32342 error_code 10 request_code 2 minor_code 0)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
aborting...
Trace/breakpoint trap


It's now time to stop playing with old gtk libraries, and trying Qt.

This media testing page should be enough to be convinced.

no weird gtk errors here all i get when i open iceweasel 3.5.1 from a terminal in sid is:
$ iceweasel
OpenOffice path is '/usr/lib/openoffice'

and I probably only get that because I have the OpenOffice.org Plug-in installed in iceweasel.


I run both iceweasel and firefox 3.5.2 havent had any issues with either in a while now.

The problem is not immediate.
You need to play with some videos, and just closing the tab will crash firefox.
I've tried with many different plugins (3 different => same result with xine / mozilla-plugin / plugger).

The bug is known: Bug #401055: 'firefox-3.5' received an X Window System error

You need to play with some videos, and just closing the tab will crash firefox.
I've tried with many different plugins (3 different => same result with xine / mozilla-plugin / plugger).

The bug is known: Bug #401055: 'firefox-3.5' received an X Window System error


Firefox/iceweasel is open 12+hrs here and never crashes. Not on youtube, not on hulu, not watching a video in mplayer etc. Nor am I getting the gtk errors others were reporting. Perhaps its a gnome/kde bug causing it to crash? I run debian sid with lxde and slim, no kde/gnome cruft here.

WTF do ubuntu bugs have to do with Debian ?

The bug has been reported by ubuntu because you have more chance to find a Firefox user on ubuntu than on Debian.

See here if you prefer mozilla bug tracking: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=499498

I've been using Firefox for years, and even kept Firefox 2 as long as possible (no need of Firefox 3).
I did not have these problems at all with Firefox 2.

Recently, I've made the decision to switch to Fx 3.5.2 because some small (very small....) improvements has been made for KDE4 integration.

I don't have any crash with Flash, but now with simple videos or mp3 streaming, especially on the testing page above, and especially when stopping the play, or closing the working tab.
May be it is more specific between Firefox and KDE 4, but the bug is clearly coming from firefox which should not crash.
Old gtk libraries make Firefox a very complex engine, not so easy to port.

If Opera becomes open source one day (...), sure it will have a great success on linux.

Can you please confirm you can read this video http://fredrik.hubbe.net/plugger/xvidtest.avi in Firefox 3.5.2 (not external player), and close the tab during reading ?
Thanks.

yes all the plugin tests including that work just fine, I will say again No crashes. That includes opening in a new tab then closing that tab while it is playing. The same for iceweasel 3.5.1

And how did you install Firefox/3.5.2 in Debian ?
Did you just get the tar from mozilla ?

download Firefox
extract to my /home
ln -s /usr/lib/iceweasel/plugins /home/craig/Downloads/firefox/plugins
opened iceweasel with iceweasel -profilemanager and created a profile for Firefox
copied my iceweasel profile to the new firefox profile
created a Firefox.desktop

5 minutes work and I have Firefox, even updated itself from 3.5.1 to 3.5.2 with no issues.

"download Firefox
opened iceweasel "

Sorry, I don't understand this one. I am still confused to understand if you use Firefox or Iceweasel.

Differences can be:
1. compilation options (read http://willcode4beer.com/tips.jsp?set=ffmozplugger and https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Config ... timization)
2. PANGO set to 1 or 0
