“连”、“设备” are Microsoft YaHei(MSYH), but the others are other fonts which are not on my computer, and although my settings are zh-CN, my language pack is zh-CN, my Default Font is MSYH, the bold characters are JAPANESE STYLE CHINESE CHARACTERS. Maybe it is because in your font-config, ja-JP is former to zh-CN, please fix it.

I would rather not re-write the old IDE's I've been using for years but rather replace them with html/xml web style pages. Konqueror will locally execute binaries with a launcher script. Firefox, Chrome, re-Konq, WebPositive, and IE Explorer will not. If Firefox or SeaMonkey would execute my binaries I could easily replace the old IDE's and save myself and my clients a lot of time and money.

startup crash fixed

Fixed a startup crash in Linux KDE5/Plasma5 with `chmod 1777 /dev/shm` Cryptic crash message in konqueror:

[7322, Main Thread] WARNING: failed to open shm: Permission denied: file /builds/worker/checkouts/gecko/ipc/chromium/src/base/shared_memory_posix.cc, line 246 ExceptionHandler::GenerateDump

Key phrase: "shm permission denied" - ignore the rest.

Spent a half hour trying to add the fix to the crash reports, found no way to do that. Once the cause of the crash is fixed, there is no way to add that information to the crash report. Developers just get bombed with crash reports every time I click Restart.

These should be closed with a note to check /dev/shm permissions. The '1777' was changed after a system update.

I am running with ubuntu 18.04.3 and firefox 75

This is strange and i can't figure it out. I will be browsing along and, suddenly, I am in a new window. When this happens the current tab becomes a new window. As an interesting aside I also notice that the firefox icon does not show me that I now have two windows open. My suspicion is that I am pressing a wrong key but I can't seem to be able to do it on purpose so I have no idea what I am doing to cause this, or how to stop it.

thank you...........
