View Full Version : [SOLVED] Is ubuntuzilla a "script"?

I installed ubuntuzilla today from Sourceforge using:

ubuntuzilla-4.4.5-0ubuntu1-i386.deb

the package dowloaded and the "Install" radio button was ready. I closed Firefox, clicked install and watched the software installer work. A few seconds later it was gone and everything was A-OK.

Later upon restarting my Gutsy, running FF causes it to lock, and slow and a box pops up on screen saying a script is running and do I want to cancel it. I try to click yes, but the computer is now almost frozen.

So I go back to the uninstall instructions and do:

mark@Lexington-19:~$ sudo apt-get remove --purge ubuntuzilla
[sudo] password for mark:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Couldn't find package ubuntuzilla

This isn't fair. I can't even know if 'zilla installed or is now lost. What's worse I don't know what is harming the FF browser.

hm, weird...
what's your output of

dpkg -L ubuntuzilla
and

apt-cache show ubuntuzilla

the "script is running" bit is likely due to some javascript that's running in firefox, rather than to anything running on your system.

what extensions do you have installed? does the same thing keep happening if you try starting with a new fresh profile (run "firefox -P" and create a new clean profile - you can always go back again to your old one, so don't worry).

ah so it appears you did uninstall ubuntuzilla

by the way... you say you installed the ubuntuzilla package - but did you use ubuntuzilla to actually install the official mozilla build of firefox (by running from terminal

ubuntuzilla -a install -p firefox
?

just to double check here, since you didn't specifically mention doing this.

about firefox -p - yea, start it from a terminal
you could also just "move" your old profile out of the way (it's in .mozilla folder in your home dir) and a new one will automatically start.

see if that makes it behave, and then at least you would have narrowed it down to a profile problem.
