    [SOLVED] Firefox

    When opening firefox, and attempting to open a site, this popped up. I have a screenshot attached.

    I uninstalled firefox and then reinstalled. When trying to open up a site, I get the same pop up.

    Really don't know what to do and don't understand the pop up.

    Thanks for the help in advance.

    Looks like a bug (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s....0/+bug/251875). Try installing opera if you cannot solve the problem....

    Can you give a link as to which website gives this error.
    Be Safe. Use Linux.
    Double your drive space. Delete Windows.

    Re: Firefox

    Can you close Firefox, and paste this command into the terminal?
    Code:
    firefox -safe-mode
    If that doesn't solve the problem, then something is truly wrong with your Firefox installation.

    Re: Firefox

    I would start by disabling all add-ons. If that solves it, enable them one at a time until you find the one that causes it.

    If that doesn't work, something in your configuration may be corrupted. Reinstalling won't necessarily solve this. You may have to uninstall FF, then delete ~/.mozilla/firefox/xyz.default (where xyz can be anything). Then reinstall FF.

    Unfortunately that will lose all your add-ons, configuration and bookmarks (unless you have Foxmarks installed, in which case you can reimport them).
    Before you criticise someone, walk a mile in their shoes. Then, when you do criticise them, you're a mile away and have their shoes.

    The shortcut way to all of what you just said is firefox -safe-mode, which temporarily disables all add-ons and allows you a way to permanently disable them if that's what fixes the problem.

    Thanks for that aysiu - I didn't know that's what safe-mode did.
