    It will have to be later tho. I'm in the process of releasing a new version of Umarks and since it could help users that will install Lucid from scratch tomorrow, then I want to release it today. I'm currently going nuts with the last tests and tutorial development. But I'm really excited about this new version.

    Ghostery is slowing down tab switching

    If you are experiencing slow tab switching in Firefox recently, disable Ghostery extension. I have noticed this behavior recently and I thought it was a problem with version 2.1.1, released on May 3rd, but version 2.1 also affects tab switching, although no so intensively. I didn't test older versions.

    Re: Firefox optimization and troubleshooting thread

    I've downloaded and am trying to manually install a developers release of the Firetray extension in Firefox.By right clicking on the xpi file and telling it to open using Firefox it installs the extension as if I had opened Firefox from a terminal using an empty profile and does not add it to my existing profile and extensions. Help
    Just figured out one way. Created a task bar shortcut to open firefox and dragged the file over it with a mouse.

    What version of Ubuntu and Firefox you are using? Have you installed a non-default Firefox version? Have you tried to do this with Firefox closed?

    I'm using Lucid.I am using a compiled version (my own) of Firefox 3.6.3. I specified the exact location for both the system install and my compiled version (I tried them both) after I realized what was going on to see if it made any difference.I tried it both ways as far as having firefox open.Obviously it opens Firefox automatically when you attempt to install the extention.

    Where did you setup the paths? What are the paths?

    So it only happens if Firefox is closed?

    The paths are the default (in fact you gave them to me)
    System Package - /usr/local/lib/firefox-3.6.3/firefox with what I guess is a symlink in /usr/bin/firefox to the aforementioned (not my strong point)
    Compiled - /usr/local/bin/firefox
    So it only happens if Firefox is closed?
    Nope. It will open up a new occurrence of Firefox when you attempt to install the extension.
    I also just did some playing around with some HTML files that I have on my system.
    If I double click on them it does the same thing (opens the file with what I'll call a barebones Firefox with no extensions as if I had used the terminal).
    Checked (and changed) the Preferred applications under System-Preferences and it doesn't make any difference. No clue as to whats going on.

    Can you remove the compiled version and the default one, then re-install only the default too see if it works?

    I have Karmic loaded on another partition thats doing the same thing when I double click on an HTML file so I'll play with that a bit also.Got to be something with the file manager and not Firefox that is causing the problem.A shortcut on the desktop or in the panel with just the command Firefox will run the compiled version with extentions (as it should). If I specify a path to the system installed Firefox that opens correctly also with the extensions which leads me to believe the symlinks are correct.

    I also believe is a Gnome or Nautilus issue. I can only think that your Gnome settings are messing with this. Nevertheless, is very weird that Karmic on the other partition is doing the same thing. You could try to create a new Ubuntu user to see if it works.
