Xorg/Firefox problems

Peter Nabbefeld

Hello,

since some time I've got problems with Xorg, it seems, sometimes the
sessionmanager isn't initialised correctly:
The application bar (menues, workspaces etc.) isn't shown, I have to
shutdown Xorg right-clicking on the desktop for the menu and restart it.

This isn't such a big problem, so I didn't ask for that before.

Since Firefox changed to Quantum, I've got another problem with browser
windows, which might be related:
Browser windows don't open correctly, content often isn't shown. This
_is_ a problem for me, as I don't want to look for everything again.

Did anybody else have the same problems? How can I solve these?

Kind regards
Peter

Sorry, forgot to mention I'm using XFCE.

Hi Peter,

 Quantum has been performing well for me along with X with Intel graphics. Can you provide for us your drivers and hardware information please?

Thanks,

Re: Xorg/Firefox problems

Peter Nabbefeld
Hi Freq,

as noted, I'd guess I've got problems with Xorg, which cause Firefox to
crash. Probably some of the improvements in Quantum are just depending
on a more stable Xorg, e.g. correctly initialised modules.

For a first review, I add the output of lspci and lsmod - please tell
me, what else You may need, as I don't have a deep knowledge, sorry. But
I still want to learn ;-)

Kind regards
Peter

can you change AccelMethod to check if the issues still happen?

Re: Xorg/Firefox problems

Peter Nabbefeld
Hi Bjoern,

my config file already looks like this:

Section "Device"
    Identifier  "Intel Graphics"
    Driver      "intel"
    Option      "AccelMethod"  "uxa"
#   Option      "AccelMethod"  "none"
EndSection

"uxa" is already the alternative setting, so I'd expect it to work.
However, I can try to set it to any other value tomorrow morning (as
I've finally got my Laptop up and working in the meantime, at least for
today ;-) ).

Kind regards
Peter

You are using Intel graphics and you also have Nvidia available.
Generally, Nvidia is added to a computer for gaming, mining, streaming improvements.


Getting your drivers - https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/NVIDIA#Installation 

Configuring - https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/NVIDIA#Automatic_configuration 

- If this is not what you want, please write back.
