[Bug 1318403] Re: Firefox continuously freezes and freezes the rest of the system (Ubuntu 14.04)


My observation, it happens typically when i do something on google
particularly gmail. I don't recall anything like that happening in
calendar, docs or youtube. To my observation, no other sites in my
experience have this (hang condition) problem.

At times, i can do a force quit. In that case, i usually logout & login again just to restart X. If it is a complete hang, & that happens periodically, at least 1ce a day, the power button does work for me, but you chaps are right, ctrl-alt whatever, not even f1-f4 work; so that i can at least do a clean shutdown. The system is completely hung. Here's my system info;
Acer aspire 4755g
intel core i5-2410M
NVIDIA GeForce 540M
Mem : 8gb

Firefox 33
Ubuntu 14.04.1
I followed this proc to install bublebee. Dono if i did something right/wrong, but at that time, it worked. I would say it started happening about 2wk to a month ago soon after i did an update.

personally, i'm not really sure it's a firefox problem since it only
happens on google & in particualr gmail!

  Firefox continuously freezes and freezes the rest of the system
  (Ubuntu 14.04)

Status in “firefox” package in Ubuntu:
Status in “mozillateam-ppa” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Important Update: The problem is solved when I erased .mozilla folder
  (locate in /home) and reopen firefox to recreate the folder
  '.mozilla'. Maybe a corrupt file or bad writing.

  Without opening Firefox, the computer works perfectly, but when you open and use Firefox starts the first freeze, and the whole system starts to become extremely slow. If I try to close Firefox and reopen it back, says there is an open process that I must close. In "No Add-ons mode" the same problem happens.
