Firefox no longer cooperaties with trickle
Trickle is an application that lets a user limit the bandwidth of a process or processes. An example, limiting the download rate of wget:
[Code:] trickle -d 600 wget http://mystuff.com/myfile
This will download "myfile" from "mystuff.com" at a maximum rate of 600KB/s.
Now, all of a sudden (I'm not sure what caused this), I can no longer use trickle with Firefox.
[Code:] trickle -d 600 firefox
[Quote:] fermulator@fermmy:~$ trickle -d 600 firefox trickle: Could not reach trickled, working independently: No such file or directory
It just sits there, and never opens. How can I debug this? I've tried uninstalling and re-installing trickle, but that didn't help.
