[Bug 848883] New: Firefox and Thunderbird not responding after initial window, dolphin and others very, very slow

Summary: Firefox and Thunderbird not responding after initial
window, dolphin and others very, very slow
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 13.1
Version: RC 2
Platform: x86-64
OS/Version: SUSE Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Major
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Firefox
AssignedTo: bnc-team-mozilla@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: j.reitsma@xxxxxxxxx
QAContact: qa-bugs@xxxxxxx
Found By: ---
Blocker: ---

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:24.0) Gecko/20100101

After a fresh install of RC1, and also after upgrading RC1 to RC2, firefox and
thunderbird are not working. Both show

(process:4432): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_slice_set_config: assertion 'sys_page_size
== 0' failed

when started from the command line. There are several posts (also very recent
ones) on the Firefox Bugzilla about this error message for FF and TB. None on
opensuse. There, it is suggested that starting with the environment variable


is a work around, but that doesn't work in my case.

After first start of FF, the FF-window appears, with the entries on the main
menu, but without the corresponding icons. Starting it a second - or third,
fourth etc.) the icons appear also, and a subwindow which lists the sessions
that could not be opened (which is all sessions).
No input is taken from mouse or keyboard, and also closing the window does not
work (until KDE kicks in and let the user stop FF or TB).

Also - but maybe not related - some applications are very, very slow starting
up. For example to start dolphin it takes 75 secs. To restart or shutdown from
the KDE menu it takes 2 minutes for the little stop-menu to appear, and another
75 secs before the real shutdown is started after choosing restart or shutdown.

Shutdown as root from a terminal has it's normal speed.

Reproducible: Always
