View Full Version : [lubuntu] Firefox closing when mouse wheel moves to another workspace

If I switch to another workspace whilst Firefox is open, FF closes without saving any content. I switch workspaces via the mouse wheel.

Has anyone else noticed this behaviour? It is causing me considerable trouble and loss of time.

No, I'm afraid not, as I can't use firefox (don't like it, also it's very slow on my machine)

However, if you open a terminal (LXMenu -> Accessories > LXTerminal

and type:


firefox

it will launch firefox. Do whatever you usually do to get it to crash, then post output from the terminal here, from "firefox" to "Robbyx@Robbyxcomputername:~/$"

Then we can see what is going wrong. Thanks!
