Hi, I'm experiencing freezing on sites like duckduckgo and youtube with qutebrowser. I'm on Arch Linux with the latest packages installed. My linux kernel version is 3.17.6-1-ARCH, with qt5 version 5.4.0-1 on every pacakge. I've installed qutebrowser from the AUR (non git version) which is version 0.1.0-1.

I've tried downloading qutebrowser from github directly and run qutebrowser.py in the root directory but the same freezing happens. Using the minimal_webkit_testbrowser.py script also results in freezing on duckduckgo and youtube. There is no segfault that happens and installing the qt5 packages with debugging symbols results in nothing when running with gdb as I just get a blank screen when trying to load duckduckgo or youtube. If I load a simple website like google or reddit, everything is fine. Not only that, but I can't close the browser unless I forcefully kill the process. Running qutebrowser through the terminal results in nothing useful and only says "Please close browser and run mozplugger-update" when I try to CTRL + C the task in the terminal.

I don't know how else to reproduce this problem.

Do you same the same thing in a pure Qt (i.e. non-PyQt) browser, e.g. otter-browser in the AUR?
Do you have the mozplugger package installed?

I can reproduce by installing mozplugger, then removing it again. Then as long as ~/.mozilla/plugins/mozplugger*.so still exists, this seems to happen.

So if you don't need mozplugger anymore I suggest just deleting these files. I'll file an upstream Qt bug when I get to it.

Thanks! Deleting ~/.mozilla/plugins/mozplugger*.so works; I was using firefox + pentadactyl before, but never used mozplugger. I had it uninstalled a long time ago, but I didn't know it still has it lingering in my configs. I haven't tried any other browsers, so I can't say anything about the same thing happening.

Glad to hear that has been resolved!
