Firefox 67.0 NOT WORKING

Udvarias Ur
Since the upgrade to Firefox 67.0 was installed, Firefox will NOT load
anything!

I tried to downgrading with Synaptic, however, the only option Synaptic
gives me is Firefox version 45.0.2. (I believe it's the 1st version
installed with Ubuntu 16.04.)

(Synaptic should allow backing up to the previous version, as in the
case of a new version that is broken.)

Worst of all I can't find Firefox version 66.0.5 anywhere, not even
Launchpad.

Tried using the Ubuntu browser, however it's so slow that it's virtually
useless.

I've installed Chromium, however I still can't find version 66.0.5. (The
last version that was working on my system.)

Reinstalling Firefox 67.0 didn't change anything.


Any suggestions?

What will it not load? Give an example. Are you talking about
extensions or web pages? Are there any error messages? How long does it
take to fail - an instant, seconds, minutes...?

FWIW I am running Firefox 67 on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and it is working
fine.

One option would be to fully uninstall it and then re-install it.
Another option would be to create a new profile; if Firefox works with
a new profile, then something in your current profile is screwed up.
For both those suggestions, if you have bookmarks, back them up first.

If you're having the same issue I'm suddenly having, then click links
twice and they'll load on the second click. I have no idea what's
causing it and they don't seem to be aware of it yet, but at least
you can load pages with a bit of extra work for now.

the stable snap package of firefox is still at 66.0.5 you could try
that as interim workaround:

$ snap info firefox
...
(lots of marketing text from mozills foundation)
...

channels:
  stable:        66.0.5-1    2019-05-08 (212) 219MB -
  candidate:     67.0-2      2019-05-20 (216) 221MB -
  beta:          68.0b3-2    2019-05-21 (219) 219MB -
  edge:          63.0b13-1   2018-10-09 (140) 206MB -
  esr/stable:    60.7.0esr-1 2019-05-20 (217) 214MB -
...


seems while the (canonical maintained) deb moved on, the mozilla
foundation still keeps the 67.x snap in the candidate channel for
further testing.

WEB pages will not load. I can't give an example as NOTHING
happens.There are no error messages. Instantly, if you will, as NOTHING
happens.

Uninstalling is not a option as all the I use Firefox as a password
manager for WEB that require a login.

Why would the profile, which worked fine with the previous version,
suddenly be screwed up.

Thanks for the suggestion. I try it but, unfortunately, it doesn't work
for me.

I have not been following the thread but did you try invoking it
from the command line and look at the output? I have chrome but IIRC
with firefox you may  do "which -a firefox" and
invoke whichever one(s) are there with a verbose flag or something.

Also try looking at netstat and see if it is opening anything.

It is also fun to run "strings" on the executable and look for "--"
to find hidden flags :)

An example would be one specific URL that you have tried. The idea is
to make sure that it is not just the URL.

So just to be clear, when you type e.g. "www.google.com" into the
address bar and press ENTER, *nothing at all happens*? There are no
error messages, the window does not change, the progress indicator at
top left does not change, no status message appears at lower left, the
text in the address bar remains unchanged, the text cursor remains
where it is etc etc? I.e., be very careful with the word "nothing".

> Uninstalling is not a option as all the I use Firefox as a password

It might be irritating to have to put those passwords in again
afterwards,but perhaps not so irritating as not having Firefox at all?
If you don't have the passwords recorded elsewhere, I guess a lesson
has been learned...

> Why would the profile, which worked fine with the previous version,

I don't know. Why would Firefox stop working? Why only for you? Why is
there air?

Did you TRY a new profile? Not as a fix, but just to help you/us locate
the problem? If not, please do...

Quick and easy, non-destructive way to test a new profile, Open a
Terminal window and use the command:

firefox --no-remote --profilemanager

From the Dialogue box, use the Create Profile Button

When your done, use that command again to switch to your old profile
(probably called Default)

Hi,

perhaps the future is Qt.

I can't comment on Firefox, since I don't have Firefox installed on
Ubuntu. However, my Ubuntu 16.04 LTS install works without issues, but
on my Arch Linux install I suffer from something that is an issue for
Ubuntu installs > 16.04, too.

See https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gtk+2.0/+bug/1808710.

Unfortunately, apps such as GIMP usually can't be replaced by apps such
as Krita. Fortunately a web browser such as Firefox could easily be
replaced by a web browser such as Falkon.

Since the OP is a Firefox user on 16.04, the OP might prefer QupZilla
over Chromium.

>= 18.04
https://packages.ubuntu.com/search?suite=bionic&searchon=names&keywords=falkon

<18.04 Falkon is QupZilla
https://packages.ubuntu.com/search?suite=xenial&arch=any&searchon=names&keywords=qupzilla

That was my useful contribution to this topic. You could stop reading
here.

An semi-off-topic rant:

I'm aware that Firefox is build against GTK3. I didn't run it from
command line, but the kind of issues I experience with Firefox on Arch
Linux are similar to those I experience with the mentioned GTK2 apps. On
my Arch install apps such as Claws and GIMP are a pain to use. The same
versions of Claws, at the moment it's 3.17.3, build with the same flags
(I build it myself) does run flawlessly on Ubuntu 16.04.

The problem with some bugs is, that not everybody suffers from those
bugs, using the same application with the same versions of
dependencies, even not when using the same distro. OTOH some users
suffer from the same bug, even using different distros. My guess is,
that it is related to the desktop environment and/or window manager, as
well as to the used hardware.

A few day back I run the Qt app Polyphone from command line, I got the
messages mentioned by the launchpad bug report, too, but the app
continues to run flawlessly.

In short, for some users recent Linux installs are broken, for other
they aren't. I stopped reporting those bugs, since I experienced way
too many distro maintainers and upstream developers, that were more than
just a little bit impolite when we discussed this kind of bugs.

For most music production applications I already migrated from Linux to
Apple, to get rid of too much software and hardware issues and too many
unfriendly people.

There still is hope for Linux regarding "averaged" desktop usage, such
as office work, web browsing and fortunately not everybody is unfriendly
and ignores such issues. Walter for example tries to find out why some
GTK2 apps fail. If you experience the same consider to report it to
launchpad. I for the moment decided to stay with 16.04.

On my machine, on Arch Linux, most GTK2 and some GTK3 apps I need suffer
from voodoo issues. Qt apps don't suffer from voodoo issues, they could
suffer from bugs, too, but just from bugs that aren't that mysterious.

I have a concern regarding Qt apps. GTK apps often rely on GVFS, but
GVFS could cause issues. In my case GVFS makes an external green drive
spin down and up again and again. Fortunately I don't need GVFS and it's
easy to remove GVFS to get rid of this issue. After starting some Qt
apps, for example K3b, the green drives suffers from spinning down and
up, too and unfortunately I couldn't solve this issue, I need to
restart the computer to get rid of it.

Ralf

Also consider to run

firefox --safe-mode

with or without a new profile.

Some issues that stay when using a new profile, go away when running
firefox as another user.

Back up the password manager, I don't use it in Firefox but my K-Meleon stores
it in key.db & cert8.db in my profile dir

FWIW even 'sudo apt purge firefox' won't remove the firefox related
files inside the user's home.

I guess it won't solve the OP's issue, but you never know.
'sudo apt purge firefox' would tidy up, even remove configurations,
excepted of those in the user's home. The OP could purge all firefox
related packages firefox-locale... and other. I don't know if removing
the firefox package/s from the cache is needed, but it doesn't harm to
do it and after that to install firefox again.

In my experience it is most likely a messed-up profile (that just
seems to happen sometimes) or an extension that is not compatible with
the new FF.  An alternative to trying a new profile is to logon as a
different user and try it there.  It is easy to add a 'test' user to
try it, if you do not already have a second user.  You may also be
able to logon as guest dependent on how your system is setup.

I was also going to mention if you can find the browser executable run
ldd on it. I had a messed up upgrade on Ubuntu 11 and I had put some newer packages
into temporary directories. Often I could fix or break things by exporting
LD_LIBRARY_PATH and getting the apps to use or not use various combinations
of libraries. This was kind of a mess but may be useful for finding incompabibilities.

1. How do you run ldd against an executable you can't find?

2. Regarding such voodoo bugs ldd doesn't help at all. On my machines
   you won't find soname issues.

[rocketmouse@archlinux ~]$ ldd firefox
ldd: ./firefox: No such file or directory
[rocketmouse@archlinux ~]$ ldd /usr/bin/firefox
        not a dynamic executable
[rocketmouse@archlinux ~]$ strings /usr/bin/firefox
#!/bin/sh
exec /usr/lib/firefox/firefox "$@"
[rocketmouse@archlinux ~]$ ldd /usr/lib/firefox/firefox
        linux-vdso.so.1 (0x00007ffe66911000)
        /usr/lib/libgtk3-nocsd.so.0 (0x00007fe643e53000)
        libpthread.so.0 => /usr/lib/libpthread.so.0 (0x00007fe643dd1000)
        libc.so.6 => /usr/lib/libc.so.6 (0x00007fe643c0c000)
        libdl.so.2 => /usr/lib/libdl.so.2 (0x00007fe643c07000)
        libstdc++.so.6 => /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6 (0x00007fe643a77000)
        libm.so.6 => /usr/lib/libm.so.6 (0x00007fe643931000)
        libgcc_s.so.1 => /usr/lib/libgcc_s.so.1 (0x00007fe643915000)
        /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 => /usr/lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 (0x00007fe643e8d000)

However, it doesn't mean that downgrading one or several libs and
recompiling against the downgraded libs won't solve an issue. Compiling
bloatware such as firefox could take hours, so trial-and-error
compiling against different library versions could be way to time
consuming. On Arch you would even need to rebuild a package with debug
symbols. On Ubuntu you could replace all needed packages by packages
compiled with debug symbols from repositories, as long as you won't use
different versions of dependencies.

In short, troubleshooting some bugs could be way to time consuming for
those who use the computer to get work done. Let alone that it already
requires a learning curve just to use debugging tools, even without
understanding the output, just to provide ouput for developers who
understand the it.
