Ok, I'm not sure where to start looking for this:
with just firefox loaded, everything works fine. The other day I decided to try out evince, which requires gnome-vfs (I knew about this problem before) so I installed it. Immediately I tried firefox to see if it hung, and, yes, it did.
gnome-vfs causes firefox to hang whenever it should popup a little filesystem box. evince works correctly, so I don't think it's gnome-vfs itself, but the way firefox and gnome-vfs work together....
When I get time, I'm going to recompile firefox w/o gnome-vfs support....
That fixed it for me too. I was scared to surf sites where I had to download something. I hope I recover soon. :-)
Hello girls, I like rock climbing, mountain biking and rafting! Write me!
wait a sec... it's not gnome-vfs... it's actually libgnome
I just tried "pacman -S gnome-vfs" and everything worked... so Is tarted going through all the dependancies of evince until I found libgnome as the culprit...
