Firefox 2

| | Comments (1)

Firefox 2.0 is completely broken on Linux.

Sometimes it lasts for hours, sometimes for seconds, but it always crashes.

I've installed someone else's RPM, and compiled it from source, with no difference. It's broken, broken, broken.

It's so broken, I have a button on my dock which runs a script to kill firefox and restart it:

desktop screen capture


# stop firefox and restart it

killall firefox-bin && sleep 1 && firefox &

And yet, the way it recovers from a crash with all of your tabs and content is amazing. Can someone backport that feature to Firefox 1.5?

I would expect the SessionSaver extension would do what you want in Firefox 1.5 - does it not work properly in Linux?
