Firefox 3.5.5 [solved]

Recommended Posts

I've been tinkering around with my Firefox, trying to get it to run videos, listen to music, etc. I started it in console, and below are the results. Any idea what I can do?

 

[kieth@host-001 ~]$ firefox
_IceTransSocketUNIXConnect: Cannot connect to non-local host localhost.localdomain
_IceTransSocketUNIXConnect: Cannot connect to non-local host localhost.localdomain

(firefox:3263): GnomeUI-WARNING **: While connecting to session manager:

It complains about plugins, but here are the ones installed.

You probably need a flash plugin as well as video plugin: mplayer-plugin or similar before you'll get your video working.

 

As for music, it depends on what and how it is being streamed.

 

All those lists of plugins are not for firefox, the best way to see what firefox plugins you have is to type:

 

about:config

 

in the url bar and see what is listed.

Thank you SilverSurfer60 for directing me to the 2010.0 errata page. This might be hard to believe, but I was reading it everyday waiting for something to be said about the videos in Firefox. I must have skipped a day before writing this post, and that was the day something was written there! Anyway, I now have the videos working, but no sound. I think it is just getting the right combination worked out in my mixer, but I'm not sure. I was able to get skype sound working, but not the sound in Fox News. Since we talk to the kids often, via skype, I wanted to get sound there working. By doing that, sound at Fox News bit the dust. To get sound in skype, I had to disable pulseaudio in MCC.

 

I started Firefox in Console, and here are the complaints:

 

[kieth@host-001 ~]$ firefox

LoadPlugin: failed to initialize shared library /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/nppdf.so [/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/nppdf.so: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32]

(firefox:5657): Gdk-WARNING **: XID collision, trouble ahead

 

 

I would think it's related, but I cannot listen to the radio in RealPlayer, either. There's no sound.

OK, I think I got everything working. I had to remove nspluginwrapper, plus do the other things on the 2010.0 errata page for firefox. In MCC, I set the sound configuration for alsa (the default driver). I also had to enable pulseAudio. To be honest, I'm really not sure what I did to make it all work! I just kept changing configurations/combinations in MCC sound configuration and KMix.

Glad you got it sorted Kieth, unfortunately your method seems to be the only method of fault finding at the moment. I disabled pulse on my system to get it working properly, never had to before.

I know scarecrow is not a great lover of PulseAudio, but others seem to like it. Me, I have no opinion. What ever gives me sound is fine with me. You would think, though, that there would be a better way to resolve the problem. I suppose as PulseAudio and the others are developed, we will see fewer and fewer problems like this. I know things have really come a long way with Mandrake/Mandriva since I started using it!
