Pale Moon browser crashing, forcing log out when it does

Unread post by ok-how-is-this » 2022-09-07, 03:48

Pale Moon has been crashing. When it does, it logs me out. Upon signing back in, audio output is set to "dummy output" and does not return unless I reboot. Things I have tried so far including upgrading my kernel from 5.4 to 5.15, resetting my about:config, creating a new profile in PM, deleting a third of my bookmarks. I have also looked through the forums for other possible solutions and tried them, including: setting layout.css.resizeobserver.enabled to false, layout.css.clip-path-shapes.enabled to false, and dom.IntersectionObserver.enabled to false.

Operating system: Linux Mint 20.3 XFCE
Browser version: 31.2.0.1
32-bit or 64-bit browser?: 64-bit
Problem URL: Lost the last link and unable to find again. It was a twitter link, but it's not always the same links and I am often able to open the links that cause the crash later. This has also happened with GitHub emails and product pages on amazon.com, among others.

Maybe try enabling hardware acceleration? Not sure if this will do anything, but might as well test it out.

Try running Pale Moon from a terminal and see what it outputs when it crashes.

This sounds familiar to viewtopic.php?f=3&t=28615&p=230679 (Pale moon crash X when on Chinese or Japanese page); please try the solutions in that thread.

Maybe try enabling hardware acceleration? Not sure if this will do anything, but might as well test it out.
Thanks, I will try this.

Try running Pale Moon from a terminal and see what it outputs when it crashes.
I can try this. What is the command to start it in terminal? Just 'palemoon'?

That does sound similar. Ok, I have set gfx.xrender.enabled to false.

If you installed it via the repository, it should already be on the path and typing palemoon will suffice. If you are using the extracted version, then change to the directory where you installed it and type

Code: Select all

./palemoon

Thanks, friend. I have installed it via repository, so I will simply type 'palemoon' to run it.

I neglected to mention in my first post that when I get logged out, all the programs and files that are open are also closed completely. When I log back in, the browser will remember where I was, including logged in accounts, with the exception of the tab that caused the crash. So when I run palemoon in the terminal, if it crashes again, I'm not sure what kind of, or how much, information will be captured. There has fortunately been no crash today.

Ah so you're saying you get logged out of your user account on the OS. That means the X server is crashing hard and will complicate matters in terms of gathering information. We though (collectively, I'm assuming) you mean getting logged out of a website.
Unfortunately in that case, Pale Moon is just the trigger of something that's problematic in your system/X11 in that case, and not actually a bug in the browser itself causing just it to crash. As such it's going to be hard to troubleshoot for us.

Sorry, yes, I wasn't clear about that.

Yes, it does somehow seem to be a trigger. So far I've been unable to get a similar result with a different browser. To try and further narrow this down, a couple weeks ago I switched a separate but similar computer over to Firefox and a Chrome variant only. Everything has been working okay there for now. I'm hopeful one of the two solutions above or maybe another yet to appear will help.

Is this happening regularly, randomly, or on a specific website ? In the past I had occasional X server freezes e.g. with Pale Moon on particular sites, or with Acrobat reader on particular pdf files (I remember long time ago some of those caused the fan to speed up so fast to be heard), but I've never blamed the browser or reader but the specific site/file. Complete OS crashes are extremely rare (for me).

It is known that on some systems, the XRender subsystem is a bit broken. Neither Firefox nor Chrome use it and use an OpenGL way of handling the communication with X (which is the same way we do it if XRender is disabled - which has some different drawbacks) so you may not have an issue with those browsers, and there's a good chance that simply toggling XRender off will be a solution for you as well.

It seems to be on random sites, and has happened on small ones as well as major ones like amazon and twitter. The process is always the same: I click link to open new tab, computer locks up, logs me out of my user account. I log back in, sound does not work, all previously open files and the browser are closed, but the browser remembers where I was with the exception of the last tab I tried to open that seems to have triggered the crash. This has happened a number of times on this machine in the last week. My other machine, which is similar to this one, and is used for very little other than video watching and checking email has had the same issue in the same way, but due to its lighter usage it has been a couple months since this happened there. Most of those crashes occured nearer to startup, and not loading palemoon until about 10-15 minutes later seemed to have helped a bit, but the crashes would still occur. Prior to posting here, I had been trying to troubleshoot it on my own (see initial post above), thinking it may have been my profile and/or my settings. I have not been able to replicate this with other browsers on either machine so far, although I have been trying. Crashes had also been quite rare for me previously.

Ah, very interesting, thank you. I was able to successfully navigate amazon yesterday for an extended period with no troubles and have had no crashes since changing that setting, so I hope this has fixed it. Time will tell.

I haven't had a crash since changing this one setting, so I am marking this as the solution. For anyone else who may have a similar problem and read this thread later, the solution for me was to open about:config and set
