FireFox 19 and this forum
« le: 13 mars 2013 à 22:00:38 »
Using Firefox 19 on PClos-Openbox Bonsai and for some reason, only with these forums the scrolling is very very slow.  Press the down arrow key and wait.

If I go to the old forums, that we moved from, or any other web site the scrolling is fine.

I also have Chromium installed and it is way faster then Firefox.

What do your "Browsing" settings look like?

If your cache size is set to zero there should be no problem.
My firefox on Bonsai is actually about the fastest firefox I
use.     Very responsive scrolling thru any web pages.

Close Firefox and restart Firefox, probably is stuck in RAM
in the middle of some other program.    Cache Status add-on
is nice as I make the RAM cache bigger and it doesn't fill up as fast.

Clear the RAM cache will speed it up after using it all night too.

What theme is that ?     Looks pretty good.

Rob,

Do you see any improvement? Did you also do what Patrick suggested? I think his solution will make a much bigger difference. I don't think the "check my spelling" has any affect on speed. I find it annoying to type a URL into the address bar while the machine makes siggestions as to what I really want. The software is not smarter than I am.

Hi,

Make sure sqlite-tools is installed in your system, then copy paste this command line into a console (as simple user):

find . -name ‘*sqlite*’ -exec sqlite3 {} ‘vacuum’ ;
This command line cleans the sqlite databases used by Firefox, which helps preventing slowness. (Bleachbit also uses this when optimize firefox option is selected).

PS: sqlite-tools and sqlite source packages are... slighly outdated at pclos.

http://www.sqlite.org/
Version 3.7.15.2 of SQLite is recommended for all new development. Upgrading from all other SQLite versions is recommended.

pclos version is 2.8.17 2009

Ok I have rebooted and I am in Openbox Bonsai and FF 19.  I changed the settings and no difference.  Installed Cache Status, cleared the cache and no difference.

It seems like after FireFox 13 things started to get a lot slower for me.

Well if the disk cache is locked at zero, updates are off, search engines
and add-on updates off, it should work OK.

Try private browsing all the time, set it to default.

Copy .mozilla somewhere, delete it in /home/user, and copy it
back.    It could be fragmented.   

Turn all the add-ons off, especially compact menu !

Reinstall Firefox once, it's worth a try.

Wait 5 minutes and post back.

Wow, Firefox runs good on this little netbook. I stopped using it a few years back and use Safari on the Macs and now Chromium on Linux.

I'm going to have to go make a theme for it I think.......what shall I do?..............

find: missing argument to `-exec'

I was also missing something; Here this will work. This should return a list of files:
find . -name '*sqlite*' -exec ls -l {} \;
this should clean and compress what among the files found by the above command are databases:
find . -name '*sqlite*' -exec sqlite3 {} 'vacuum' \;
Firefox needs to be closed in order to use the two above command lines.

if you get lines of this "Error: file is encrypted or is not a database" just ignore them. If you get a line of this at the end of the lines of messages: "Error: database is locked" then check for an instance of Firefox running somewhere and close it.

It is probably too old.

Have you tried the standalone Google Chrome rpm for GNU/Linux ? (It is for Fedora, OpenSuse, but it might work directly in PCLOS).
