Google Maps locks up

Post by arcman » Thu May 05, 2011 2:24 pm

A couple of days ago I dumped Avant and installed Orca. Seemed to be a big improvement up until today.

After opening a page in Google Maps and going to Street View, any direction change will lock up the browser. You can drag the view 360 degrees but as soon and you click on a direction arrow, it locks up.

I started up Avant and Street View works fine. Back to Orca and it locks up. After Street View locks up, no other pages will load and the browser has to be restarted.

Just noticed that the play button on my Youtube videos is missing.

Maybe Orca isn't any better than Avant after all...

No problem here,do you use any addons?

Somehow, the Youtube play button has reappeared. I restarted the computer multiple times with no luck and then out of nowhere... it fixed itself.

Still locks up the browser clicking on the direction arrows in Google Maps.

No addons.

I just installed K-Meleon (browser) and the same thing happens with Google Maps. So, this obviously isn't a Orca problem, it's the engine.

Any chance someone here could try to duplicate this?

I will try Firefox and see if it happens there too.

Looks like problem solved.

After installing Firefox and trying Google Maps, it said Flash crash. I updated Flash and now it seems fixed.
