  5. [xubuntu] Re: 15.04-beta2 and Firefox 37 (constant crashes)

    Using 15.04 updated most days, running Unity and Firefox 37. Some problems with Unity but not with Firefox or Chromium.

    Old linux images can be removed with synaptic.
    Also,

    No, it's not fixed as of 10 February vivid amd64 .iso.
