Xfce - Panel, CPU Graph - Task Manager quits

Hi All,
yea, left click the cpu graph on panel. brings a quick flash of the task manager, empty - then quits.
Tied to get it thru the menu -- same result...empty & quickly quits.
I tried to open from terminal but don't know command? I believe terminal output would help explain.
The panel graph is still working.

Update:: With all apps closed {ffox, mousepad, thunar} task manager worked.
Had ffox open - tm quit as before...?


Didn't want to post another...but, Root Terminal from menu, does not start either.

Hi. Good find. I didn't notice this problem.

However this may be a FreeBSD problem not a GhostBSD problem, for what it's worth. I have a machine with FreeBSD11.1 installed and it has the same problem. If I close Firefox, the task manager works fine.
With the task manager still open, I can launch Firefox with no problem.
I have Palemoon installed, which is based on Firefox and there is no problem, so I think the new Firefox Quantum browser is causing this problem.

The command to launch the task manager is:

xfce4-taskmanager

root terminal also doesn't work on FreeBSD

The terminal output when the task manager quits is:

Segmentation fault (core dumped)

which I think means there is a problem with the source code somewhere. The devs have to fix it.

Hi & Thanks for your reply, Neville...
Guess I'll give freebsd's dev's some time to fix, and appreciate you passing those commands!
VERY interested in Pale Moon to replace bloating (and Not MY way) ffox.

Tried to set up dual boot with linux and screwed up big time .... need to research more.
When I work that out - Ghost will be on again.
But thats another post! :)
Thx again...
