[Linux] PM 31.1.0 github crash/freeze

Unread post by zelea2 » 2022-06-09, 18:47

Go to https://github.com
Typing something in the search field results in crash or complete freeze.

If you browse an individual page from github then it works fine (minus the code download - no polyfill yet).

Works for me. No freeze or crash here on my Linux version of PM 31.1.0.

Do you see the same problem(s) if you access Github in PM's safe mode or with a new profile? Is this the mainline Linux version of PM, the version from Steve Pusser's repo, or from some other source?

Works absolutely fine in safe-mode. Now I have to debug to see which of my extensions are to blame.

No problems for me. I'm on Windows though.

That's probably the issue indeed! Good Luck! :mrgreen:

And how do you think that works, exactly?
People need to go to github to download a polyfill so they can use github? :think:

Well, the releases page still works even without WebComponents or polyfills, so it's still possible to install via vanilla PM. Though I agree there should be a mirror at least, like a mirror at our gitea at https://repo.palemoon.org. Who knows, maybe in the future without WebComponents, GitHub will just show up as a blank page like Pixiv... :P

Now available on Fresco: https://projectfresco.github.io/addons/ ... c-polyfill

This mirror requires JS to work, but does not use WebComponents. XPI URLs and other metadata are pulled from the GitHub API.

EDIT: The current release at the extension's main repo cannot be installed because of the maximum supported version in the install manifest and might need to be updated first. However, setting it to an extremely high number like what was done in the linked repo isn't recommended.
EDIT2: Palefill is a better alternative, now available as well on Fresco: https://projectfresco.github.io/addons/ ... n=palefill

Palefill is definitely better (it works), iv just noticed that wc-polyfill addon does not work properly in 31.1 - it breaks a few things in github.
