I am running Firefox 38.0.5-1 from the arch "Extra" repository. As up to
date as I can get - I am obsessive about updating.
This display problem started as soon as I installed the system. Of course,
I almost immediately installed firefox-noscript upon install also.
I have not used any other browser with Arch, I am really trying to keep a
relatively lean setup.
About http://www.catb.org/esr/faqs/smart-questions.html - I believe I have
see and read this before - various incarnations of this have been around
for years. Interesting, and good to keep in mind.
I did do some searching using an internet search engine. I did not come
across this link, but that's because the problem was not that the images
weren't loading. It was the superimposed rectangles.
I thought initially that it might be a case of some character set not being
installed. So it might be a good thing that I asked early on. I hate to
think how much time and effort I might have wasted on that sort of "snipe
May I suggest that technical research requires a certain kind of brain
wiring, and above all, considerable patience. If you have that, be
thankful - and please try to be understanding of those who are no so
Finally, when I did:
firefox --help | grep profile
I was treated to this sweet little error message:
GLib-CRITICAL **: g_slice_set_config: assertion 'sys_page_size == 0' failed
-P <profile> Start with <profile>.
--profile <path> Start with profile at <path>.
(with a different PID referenced each time).
Now let me do some research on that for a while. If I figure it out, I'll
let you know . . .
