090428 firefox-3.0.10 [VL6.0]
« on: April 28, 2009, 09:41:12 am »

I've built firefox for VL 6.0. 

Package: firefox-3.0.10-i586-1vl60.tlz
MD5: 80dd751cb8fb9afd549b9e4397955c86
Package Size:7120 K
Installed Size: 24860 K

Sources:  http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-6.0/source/testing/net/firefox

Code: [Select]
firefox: Firefox (Mozilla Firefox Web Browser)
firefox:
firefox: Firefox 3 is the next generation release of the award-winning
firefox: Firefox web browser from Mozilla.
firefox: To comply with Mozilla trademarks, and to assure quality control,
firefox: this is the official Mozilla build, packaged for VectorLinux.

firefox:
firefox: License: MPL 1.1/GPL 2.0/LGPL 2.1
firefox: Author:  Mozilla Foundation <drivers@mozilla.org>

Unlike most recent firefox upgrades, this is a bug fix release rather than a security fix.

After testing this package please stop back here and let us know how it works for you.

Pulls a whole useable gnome-desktop as deps... is this right?

EDIT
FWIW, I did and installation with "--no-dep" in vl light, and it works.
Please check to make sure those gnome deps are really necessary

Actually, this is a patch for a security vulnerability Mozilla defines as critical, meaning it is a very high risk vulnerability.  See:  http://www.mozilla.org/security/announce/2009/mfsa2009-23.html

Yeah, forgot to say I installed without deps as well. It's been like this with VL6 ever since the whole gsb thing. :(

I think we have to make a decision about what deps we want to include for firefox. The gnome deps are there, if you ldd the firefox binary you can see:

Note the Gnome stuff (like libg*). The thing is that Firefox can work without them, but requiredbuilder will add the package in which the library is included as required if it is installed anyway. If we want the gnome stuff out, the solution would be to add them to the EXCLUDE environment variable and requiredbuilder will ignore them.

Dang, we will have to trace the chain of deps to find out which one is pulling gnome-desktop

Not sure if this is due to me refusing to install the gnome-desktop to run FF, but I'm having a serious issue with this version here.

Every 20-30 mins, it locks up solid.
It just freezes. I'm forced to kill it using "killall firefox-bin"

Anyone else having this problem?

I downloaded the package and installed manually. Have not had any problems so far, but of course it has only been a day.

:) I may build the package, but I' m not a heavy Firefox user - much prefer Seamonkey. That said, I've used the original build for several hours, no problems here....

I've also built it again, this time under VL6.0 light. Its in the repo, so should be available within the next few hours. I've incremented the build number. You might want to try that build. It doesn't have the same number of deps (though requiredbuilder complained  bitterly about missing things when it ran). Both versions run fine for me....

I've not rebuilt the language packs, only the base package.

This is probably a one-off - I've not got enough disk space to spare to build under Light normally - I've got too many other things on the drive at present.

I'm starting to wonder. I am experiencing some unusual problems too. Every time I click the "back" button when the mplayer plugin is playing, it dies. Actually, it just disappears fairly frequently. Have not seen the crash reporting agent, either.

Working fine here. However, this release tries to fix a big bug in 3.0.9 that was making FF to crash often :/. Googling a bit shows that some people is having the same problem. I will find a stream to test the mplayer plugin. If someone finds a pattern in the crashes please post it here so we can all try to reproduce it. I would recommend moving the ~/.mozilla folder for debugging, maybe some addon is in the way.

Trying to play flash in full screen mode hangs firefox. Not with 3.0.9 or 3.1b2.

I did some experimentation and found that Seamonkey does not suffer from the same problems as FF 3.0.10 does.

Installed the official package of FF to /opt and it has been problem free. Interesting side effect was that since it doesn't find the mplayer plugin, it asks what to do with my .m3u files. I pointed it to an alternate player (vlc in this case) and I kinda prefer that behavior. This may be somewhat of a copout, but having Seamonkey configured with mplayer plugin and FF set up differently gives me more flexibility, which I like.
