Falkon is my favorite browser, but I'm having issues with it getting. Keeps freezing up on me. Any thoughts?

I've never even heard of it. Perhaps you're better off posting this to their Support.

Third party software that we don't supply ootb, your first port of call should always be the developer. We even say that in the Help Manual. Asking us to fix this is like asking the Audi dealership to fix your BMW. Yeah, they both have mechanics, but where would you take your BMW first?

AS far as I know Falkon is KDE/Qt dependant. Kaos, which is an Arch based distro with KDE has it as the default browser. I think that it needs some stuff to work properly on LL. Read here https://www.archlinux.org/packages/extra/x86_64/falkon/ and here https://www.falkon.org/about/

Hope this helps! :)
Without each others help there ain't no hope for us :)

Thanks Moltke. As it happens, I gave up on Falkon because the spell check doesn't work, for the reasons you specified. I tried to find and install a dictionary for it, but was not successful. Too bad, it is an excellent browser. Fortunately, there are many more!

I've been using it as a second browser for a couple of months and have no complaints. I haven't really given it a full test, I only use it to browse shop so I don't have ads following me on my main browser Firefox.
