    firefox acting weird after upgrade

    Well my good old 10.04 LTS was working fine until the hardware caught up with it, so I finally got myself seated and went through the process to get everything up to the current stable release with a fresh install of the 11.10 , but now the firefox acted weird. Everytime I am launching it, it return the error message

    nglayout.initialpaint.delay is invalid

    but will load after I just excuse the dialog. Its Firefox 10 Daily build I am using and it was perfectly fine on first try but act weird after I load the Update after the initial install ..

    Ok I would appreciate some input from you guys as to what might be under the hood for this.

    In addressbar type about:config then in the filter box type nglayout.

    Right click on the line mentioned in your error and modify the entry to 0. That should sort it for you. What was the setting showing when the error occurred?

    Why are you not using FF 10 from the repos?
    DISTRO: Xubuntu 12.04-64bit --- Code-tags --- Boot-Repair --- Grub2 wiki & Grub2 Basics --- RootSudo

    If that doesn't work, try right-clicking that preference, selecting the "Reset" option and then restarting Firefox.
