Hi there I'm unsure if I should start a new thread or post here, please do let me know which one is better!
I'm running firefox 17.0.1 in ubuntu 12.04 and it is all fine except the firefox process continues to run after I exit the browser. If a flash video was running the audio continues until the end of the video or I kill the process.
If I need to post more info please let me know, but would appreciate any help here!
Update, this has been resolved,the updates have now downloaded and will install. I guess it was just a temporary problem Solved
Anyone any suggestions on what I should do with this problem please:
[Resolved] Firefox Updates Failing
At the moment my Firefox updates are failing. Initially all my Ubuntu updates from the updater were not installing. When I looked at the error message I noted it was detailing problems only with the Firefox related updates. The message was to check the internet connection but:
- Firefox itself (Canonical Aurora) was open and running ok, and I have just sent this message using it.
- I deselected the Firefox related items, and all other items downloaded and installed.
I am guessing this is likely to be a temporary problem with a server or something and will sort itself out later.
The details of the error message I am getting from the update-manager are:
Failed to download package files
Check your Internet connection.I am still rather new to Ubuntu. Any advice as to what my next steps should be if this error continues, or ideas as to what the cause is likely to be.Code:Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-mozilla-daily/firefox-aurora/ubuntu/pool/main/f/firefox/firefox-globalmenu_19.0~a2~hg20130105r119197-0ubuntu1~umd1~precise_amd64.deb 404 Not Found Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-mozilla-daily/firefox-aurora/ubuntu/pool/main/f/firefox/firefox_19.0~a2~hg20130105r119197-0ubuntu1~umd1~precise_amd64.deb 404 Not Found Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-mozilla-daily/firefox-aurora/ubuntu/pool/main/f/firefox/firefox-gnome-support_19.0~a2~hg20130105r119197-0ubuntu1~umd1~precise_amd64.deb 404 Not Found Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-mozilla-daily/firefox-aurora/ubuntu/pool/main/f/firefox/firefox-locale-en_19.0~a2~hg20130105r119197-0ubuntu1~umd1~precise_amd64.deb 404 Not Found

- Do your problems only occur when you are using FlashPlayer ?
- disable or uinstall Flash if necessary to check
- note when checking for processes also look for plugincontainer not just firefox
There are a couple of KB articles that cover this sort of situation so I will add links to those. For now it is probabbly best to discount malware (It is rarely a Ubuntu problem, same goes for use of AV suites that have also been known to cause such a problem). The articles are long and it may be worth scrolling over them and exploring other links
Whatever the cause you are going to need to do abit of troubleshooting to narrow down the possiblities. May I suggest you read the articles and try the suggestions then post back with how you are getting on, and what has been tried..

Thank you very much, aka-John99, will do as you suggest and report back!
For a while now I have not been able to subscribe to new live bookmarks / RSS feeds,using the Firefox icon option "subscribe to ths page".
Existing feeds continue to work ok.
Has anyone got any information on this or troubleshooting suggestions please ?
I am probably missing something obvious. I have tried using Firefox Nightly (Mozilla) and I may set up subscriptions on that still. I have cleared all cache cookies etc, and used safe-mode with all plugins disabled, but that does not help. The error console output looks ather odd, making me wonder if in fact the feature is being deprecated.
I am using Ubuntu 12.04, Firefox (Canonical) Aurora 19.0a2 (2013-01-07), on a 64 bit AMD laptop.
Thanks great tutorial!
i have already install it. Thanks

I would have just edited the original. But I could not find the button to edit, maybe the forum has a time limit on edits.
