Firefox crashes on preview with Release 139

  • Steps to reproduce:

    1. Paste url for Contruct 2 preview

    2. Enter

    Observed result:

    Firefox shows me "Contruct 2 preview" in the tab title and immediately crashes.

    Expected result:

    Preview works perfectly fine in Chrome. This is my first time using preview in FF as I wanted to check CSS via Firebug. I don't know if this would have happened before today's release.

    Browsers affected:

    Chrome: no, version 28.0.1500.72 m

    Firefox: yes, version 22.0

    Internet Explorer: unknown

    Operating system & service pack: Windows 7

    Construct 2 version: Release 139 (64-bit)

    What do you mean by paste url? hit the test button,

  • Have you tried Firefox Nightly? Are your graphics card drivers up to date? It's not normally possible for a web page to crash a browser, so I think this is more likely a Firefox or driver issue than a Construct 2 bug.

  • Ashley- yes, I've tried normal FF and also Nightly. My graphic card drivers are also up to date.

    @GeneratorX- I have my default system browser as Chrome.

  • oh, and I can navigate to other pages on FF just fine.

    Right Im a bit confused lol

    do you mean when you test your game straight from c2?

    or showing your preview online?

    click your project and manually choose firefox-

    -as your browser

  • no worries :)

    It happens both when I navigate to my LAN preview address or to my localhost address. I just upgraded to the Personal edition today and I noticed I didn't like the CSS so I wanted to look at it in Firebug.

    From within C2, if I change my Preview Browser to FF, FF also crashes immediately when I click the Run Layout button in the top menu.

    In fact, I wanted to make sure it had nothing to do with my project so I just tried it with both a completely empty .capx and with a .capx that only had 1 button and it crashed in FF all cases.

    Ohh, remember if its a new install of firefox, then install flash & java (with plugins) for the browser

    Shoot! I thought you might be right, so I updated my Flash & Java, got the confirmation page on java test site, restarted. And still no luck :(

  • Just for reference:

    I've always used Firefox (currently 22.0) and do not have Flash or Java installed - they are not needed to run a preview from C2 - and it works fine for me with all C2 builds up to and including the latest stable build r139.

    What operating system are you using? Does it crash Internet Explorer?

    I would suggest that something on your system is blocking this from working.

  • Like zenox98, preview in firefox 22 works as intended for me.

    Flash is installed/updated, but indeed not needed for C2.

    Try to modify the project property to change the default browser from chrome to firefox, to see if it changes anything.

  • Closing as most likely not a Construct 2 bug.

  • Ashley- Yes, please close.

    My apolgies for taking up your time. Yes indeed the problem was on my end. I removed a bunch of programs that were bloating my system, ran every update possible, and somewhere along the line something fixed it. Unfortunately, I don't know what exactly it was.

    Thanks all for your input!
