  5. [ubuntu] Re: Firefox bookmarks gone after automatic update

    They are, but the version of Firefox that was installed by the updates won't restore them from backup or import them. At all. Period. It also doesn't show a home page. I have bypassed the issue...
  6. [ubuntu] Firefox bookmarks gone after automatic update [SOLVED]

  7. [all variants] Re: Windows Live Hotmail not supported for Linux

    I regret to say it, but I don't think it's Hotmail's fault. Someone decided to set the user agent name to "Ubuntu" instead of "Firefox". The latter works fine, the former does not. The Hotmail...

    SHOULD it care? No. At least I don't believe so.

    Pretty impressive that the guy can diagnose a code fault without ever seeing a line of code.

    I have the same problem.

    Installed update, rebooted as requested ... nothing. Stops at "Starting Up..."

    Ok, all better now. Thanks :)
  16. [ubuntu] Re: Evolution hosed after automatic updates

    Ok, I'll change the server I'm using and see if that helps. Maybe there's some mismatch between versions or something.

    Like I said, the update that set this off only came in this morning local...
