Updating Firefox

Post by czejar » 2021/11/03 20:03:17

Greetings,

Download CentOS-7-i386-Everything-2009.iso, install system 3.10.0-1160.2.2.el7.centos.plus.i686,
complete GNOME version 3.28.2 with firefox.i686 0:68.10.0-1.el7.centos

System run ok, plug in usb modem, found it, connection and firefox is working ok.

yum update on firefox.i686 0:91.2.0-4.el7.centos, update successful

Open updated firefox, unfortunately the system crash, scroll lock flashing off-on-off-on.
If update all system, the result is the same, open firefox and the system crash. Other software run ok, until to open firefox...

Can anything be wrong?
Thanks in advance.

Blinking scroll lock indicates a kernel panic. My first suspect is the graphics driver. What graphics card and drivers are you using? Any warning or error messages in the system or X server log files?

BTW /sys/fs/pstore/ is empty, no file about it.
