I have firefox (not bin) 4.0-r2 installed.
Sometimes when im using it, when i use right click it freeze for a while. I have the same problem with menu (File, Edit, ... ) and other buttons in firefox gui.
It is very strange because, after restart the problem sometimes appear but sometimes dont.

Opss.. I suppose i should write this at "Other Things Gentoo".

Bare in mind you are using an unstable version of Firefox, so it comes as no surprise to hear this.

What happens when you go back to a stable Firefox? Say version 3.6.16 ?

Same problem with firefox 3.6.17 :/
I think that it is a problem with cooperation of firefox with gtk.
Once i had fatal gtk err but i can't call it again :/ (something like this: gtk critical error assertion targets != Null)
And problem with wrong version don't explain problem with thunderbird.

Hmm i have found simmilar: "(firefox-bin:1946): Gtk-CRITICAL **: IA__gtk_clipboard_set_with_data: assertion `targets != NULL' failed"

I've been having this problem for years with one of my boxes. I've learned to just never right-click.

Today, I finally got sick of it, and am resolved to keep searching till I find the problem.
Heres the best looking bit of info so far:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=567746

Its something to do with libcanberra (pulseaudio)

I'll post again if I find out anything else

well yay! I finally have got rid of the 5-10s delay every time i rightclick in firefox.

Had to go through and remove support for (-pulseaudio use flag, and rebuild affected packages) and packages relating to everything libcanberra and pulseaudio using tools like "equery depends" and "emerge --depclean".

A good start would be "equery depends libcanberra"

From what I understand, another alternative would be to completely embrace pulseaudio and get it all working properly. In my case ( this is a headless fluxbox vnc terminal server with no sound card), it made more sense to remove pulseaudio and everything touching it, including gnome.

Hope this helps someone.

Do you mean your own post, or the two year old thread you're replying to?
