    internal error

    Hi - I keep getting an error message that says Ubuntu has experienced an internal error and point me to a Firefox page for support, but I have not had any luck there. I have a little experience with command line. Is there a command to debug the program?

    The internal error dialogue should give you details about what happened. Can you provide these details? Some of these errors can be safely ignored. Do you experience any problems after the error happens?

    Go forth and check ye log files.

    I'm not sure where the firefox logs are kept (I'm guessing /var/log) as run a headless server and don't actually have Firefox installed.

    Once you eventually find the log(s), locate the particular date and time that the error occurred and see if there are any messages indicating that something went horribly wrong. If you find such things, you should post them here to give everyone a better idea of what's happening

    Re: internal error

    I get these often and keep wondering if it these bugs will be fixed with updates.

    We use 12.04 on two computers and Debian 6.0 on another and never get them with Debian.

    Re: internal error

    Hi ,
    If you have no problems , and only if you have no problems :
    you can do this (to disable reports for errors)

    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/default/apport
    change 1 to 0(zero) so the line will be like this
    Code:
    enabled=0
    save the document and that was it. No more errors will be reported.
    This is not the solution. This is only a workaround for continuously reported errors that NOT affect Ubuntu's functionality.
    Thank you
