Iceweasel 3.5.16, Debian 6.0, and slow web Browsing
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 15, 2011
I am trying to get a feel for what is going on here, I have recently installed Debian 6.0, and Iceweasel from the Debian repositories. I also have Google Chrome installed. I can brwose for hours with chrome, without a hiccup, but (almost 100%) as soon as I try to use iceweasel, the connection goes to crap. Pages load slowly or refuse to load at all. And worst of all it seems to have an effect on Chrome's performance as well, as it also starts timing out on pages. After some time, and Iceweasel shut off, all seems to go back to normal.
I know I am being vague and this is very odd. I have no idea where to begin trouble shooting. I have a bit of extra software installed, and all other internet apps seem to be un-affected-such as torrent apps, skype, etc....Just web browsing.
Any help is appreciated, or anyone else experiencing this problem would being interesting to hear from.
slow web browsing possible issue w/ dns?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 4, 2010
For the last week and a half or so I've noticed that web browsing on Ubuntu has all of a sudden become painfully slow. I use chrome, and every time I open a page it seems like it's always "resolving host". Once a host has been resolved, the site seems to run better. This seems to be an issue regardless of which browser I am using. When using the same machine through vista (dual boot), web performance is as fast as always. My other windows machine works fine as well.
Right now my resolv.conf file is using 192.168.1.1 (router) as the nameserver. I am using a router flashed with dd-wrt firmware. I have heard that there may be issues with ubuntu's IPv6 support and dd-wrt, but I haven't found much info on this. I tried adding a couple of different nameservers including my ISP's and google's. I think it may be working a little better, but it still seems much slower than on windows. Before this problem started last week, I was able to browse on ubuntu without any problem. I haven
Slow Web browsing / DNS?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 17, 2009
My web browsing is excruciatingly slow, and I cannot figure out why.
Firefox 3.5 and Chromium both take an extremely long time to render pages, with a variation of 'resolving host' showing in the status bar. Firefox 3 seems to be marginally faster, but that may just be perception. Also note: I've tried browsing in safe mode with the browsers, to no effect.
However, when issue the following command:
$ dig google.com

Slow web browsing problem
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 23, 2004
Im currently dual booting between Slackware 9.1 and Windows XP Home. I have been noticing lately that when I am on Slackware and browsing the internet, it is going VERY slow compared to when I browse the web on Windows. I have a cable modem, and under windows it loads websites almost instantly. On Slackware, it takes 30-45 seconds, maybe even several minutes to load a website. Now, I have done alot of testing, and I know that it is a problem with my machine and not the remote websites Im trying to connect to. I have tried connecting to a list of sites on Slackware, and then the same list with Windows, and the connection speeds on Windows were ridiculously faster. I am wondering if anyone could maybe suggest some settings that might be causing this lack of performance.
Also, as a side note... download speeds on Slackware are very good. I have been downloading alot of software lately and I can consistantly break 350mbps downloading files. However, even while Im downloading this
Extremely slow internet browsing on debian 6
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 7, 2012
I have two computers, one running Windows 7 and the other running Debian 6. Internet browsing is extremely slow on the machine running debian, while it is normal on the machine running Windows 7, so it isn't a problem with my ISP.
IP addresses are set to DHCP while the DNS IP Addresses are static, the settings have been done using network-manager/network-manager-gnome
I am pasting the output of commands which i think will be of interest:
[SOLVED] PDF Plugin for Iceweasel 3.5 on Debian Squeeze 2
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 10, 2011
I extracted the 2 files below from the AdobeReader_enu-7.0.9-1.i386.tar.gz I found on the Internet.
I tried to do this by bringing nppdf.so in /usr/lib/mozilla plugins and copied acroread (the exec) to /usr/bin (in the path)
Last time I did an alien -i on such a package it didn't do any good.
Your advice please.
Zoom center in Iceweasel 3.5.16
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 10, 2012
Currently, we are developing a kiosk like system for a tablet device, among other features, the device allows to navigate the internet.
The tablet runs Debian Squeeze (6.04) and the navigator is Mozilla Iceweasel 3.5.16.
The tablet has, obviously, a screen with multitouch capabilities and we want to use the pinch in/out gesture for the zoom functionality. Everytime this gesture is detected, a mouse/keyboard event (Crtl + mouse wheel up/down) is sent to Iceweasel.
The problem we have is the center of the zoom is not located where the pinch gesture is being made, but in Iceweasel, and as I have verified in other computer-based navigators (Firefox, Chrome...), the center of the zoom is located at the top-left corner of the visible page.
I have tried to find a plugin or configuration setting in the about:config section, but it seems there is no option to pan and zoom simultaneously, so the page keep centered at the gesture location (or where the mouse pointer is)
Managing plugins in Iceweasel 2.0 in Debian/etch
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 4, 2008
I am trying to understand how Flash was installed in Iceweasel 2.0 on a recent installation of the Debian/Etch distribution.
Aboutlugins from the Iceweasel URL indicates the following:
File name: libflashplayer.so
Shockwave Flash 9.0 r115
The indicated file name does not seem to appear anywhere in the file system.
Flash seems to work fine with a bug or two, probably content related but I do not understand how it was installed.
The install was almost automatic, like an Active-X install in IE. Upon visiting a web site that required Flash I was asked if I needed Flash installed. I indicated "yes" and the installation began immediately. When this happened I was not queried for a root password. Flash seemed to be simply installed through the browser and I would have said that was not possible in Iceweasel on Linux.
Can anyone explain how this installation occurred without providing a root password. This would seem to be quite a security risk?
Also, the file n
Flash player not working in IceWeasel browser on fresh Debian 8.0 install
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 2, 2015
I just installed Debian 8.0 on my old laptop for the first time. I tried to use the Flash video player embedded in the IceWeasel browser for viewing a video/audio stream on the internet. It doesn't work. When I click on the window where the video is supposed to play, I get an error message that reads "video format or MIME type is not supported".
I think I either need to update my Flash player to the latest version *OR* install the correct video Codec plug-in to get it to work, or perhaps both (?,!). Being a newbie to Debian, I am not sure.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Task bar unclickable, but otherwise works. Cinnamon 2.2.16, Debian 8.1
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 2, 2015
I'm using Debian 8.1 with Cinnamon 2.2.16. Otherwise everything works fine, but I cannot click on the task bar at the bottom, nor on anything else on it.
Pressing the super key opens the menu/launcher on the bottom left, which I can then use normally. If, however, I try to open the menu by clicking it or hovering over it, nothing happens. The task bar also shows all active programs and functions otherwise normally, besides the unclickability issue, i.e., it shows the active programs, but I can't click them – I have to use alt+tab instead. The clock in the task bar likewise remains functional.
I'm not quite sure what broke it, as it was functional a day earlier. I did mess around in the terminal, but I can't remember exactly what could have caused it.
I'm wondering if restarting the task bar could fix it, but I don't know how to do it. Restarting the computer does not work.
I'll include system info as well, if someone finds it useful:
