palemoon constantly crashes

Unread postby missmoondog » Fri, 14 Sep 2018, 12:20

at first i thought this was just a 32bit issue so didn't post here but now the 64bit is constantly crashing on my computers also. thought that with the release of v28 this might straighten out but since 28.0..0.1 and 28.0.1, it crashes constantly.

i don't get any error messages or anything until after i force it closed and then the only thing i get is to send a report or not. that box does show the option to check details, but when i click it, it just sets and d oes nothing for so long i get tired of waiting and kill that.

i'm using lubuntu 18.04.1 and as stated, have both 32bit and 64 bit computers. the crashing has gotten so bad palemoon is basically useless. i like using different browsers so had to download chrome, which i don't really like, just so i could have a choice besides firefox.

i have disabled the only extension i use, which is ublock origin 1.16.4.4, and this still happens. i WILL NOT remove that extension either!

any ideas on what to do other than remove palemoon?

thank you

Try starting Pale Moon from the terminal and post any messages that appear when it crashes. Also, have you tried using a new profile?

the only thing i get is to send a report or not

Is this a Pale Moon crash report it wants to send?
Didn't know PM did that?

Or is this something on the Linux end?


Have you tested in a new, clean Profile with only uBlock added?

yes, the crash report PM wants to send. takes forever for that to show up, but it does.

no, haven't tested in a new profile.

the crashes happen most often on the couple 32bit machines i have but haven't had a chance to get on one of those in the last couple days.

just to play it safe, how do i create a new profile without messing things up?

thanks

There is a known issue if you're using your distro's version of oxygen-gtk. There is a list of Mozilla browsers in the package that it performs a workaround for to prevent the crashes, but Pale Moon is missing from that list. I have a patched version for Debian and Ubuntu in my Pale Moon OBS (not a PPA!) repository, though.
