I have noticed anytime I look at a page that contains Flash. Mozilla 0.9.2 freezes and I have to run the kill command to Kill Mozilla and restart it. The above URL is a good example. It freezes almost instantly trying to view it.
firstname.lastname@example.org, are you by any chance playing music (eg mp3s) when Flash freezes Mozilla? That is, is your audio device busy? If so, try stopping the music when Mozilla freezes.
Ive tried it with and without any sound playing. I use esound anyway which allows multiple apps to use the sound server. Tried just now with nothing but Mozilla running and it still freezes.The ZDnet site also freezes Mozilla because of the flash adverts that are embeded into some of the article pages now.
The flash plugin may not know how to use esound What happens if you shut down esd? Does Mozilla still freeze? Also, see bug 85772
Yup Mozilla still froze, I have tried it with quite a few sites now, and it still freezes. The previous version was fine, and also netscape 4.77 and latest version of Konquerer is fine too running the Plugin. It seems to freeze as soon as it gets to the part of the page where the flash code is.
works on my 6.1 redhat using 0709 branch but I have no sound card on my box..
sounds like a dup of bug 58339
I have just ran Mozilla 0.9.1 and 0.9.2 side by side, both symlinked to the same flash plugin, and also pointed both at http://www.joecartoon.com. Mozilla 0.9.2 froze instantly, but Mozilla 0.9.1 loaded up all the flash and the site perfectly... I think it must be a bug in 0.9.2. Which happens no matter if the soundserver is running or not, if xmms is playing or not. Any flash and occasionally the java plugin when that has to be loaded. Completely locks up Mozilla.
WFM Linux Build 2001071008 Sounds to me also like a dupe of bug 58339 http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=58339 Try disabling your esd before starting mozilla.
Well... email@example.com says on 2001-07-09 16:10: Yup Mozilla still froze [after shutting down esd]. So this does not look like bug 58339. It may be bug 85772 or something completely different from those....
Have you tried a recent build? That site is pretty funny and works fine in linux build 2001071008
this is not funny..this is WFM ;)
