after wrestling with several problems over the past few days of switching over to a portable version of Linux 9.10 (I'm running a Live USB created using Lili USB), and deciding between the UNR or the Desktop i386 releases (I eventually went with UNR because i386 will not load on my netbook and ends up corrupting itself), I now find myself with the interesting problem that Firefox will no longer load webpages.I'm using a wireless connection, and it worked about 4 hours ago, but doesn't any longer. It registers that it is connected (The network icon displays the connected information), but the webpages themselves will not load (And I don't know if any other web based application functions- I only bothered to check firefox).
And I know the connection itself is not to blame because I'm using it right now to post this message (Off of Windows 7).Any help that can be given would be appreciated. Except for these problems that come up I'm loving Ubuntu, and intend to use it inbetween classes and such.EDIT:No internet applications work, and the router does assign me an IP address while in Ubuntu. Also, the speed of the "Server not found" message indicates that it's not even trying to connect.
I just installed Ubuntu 9.10 in a dual boot Vista system (DELL INSPIRON 530). Everything was ok except the wireless network configuration. Afrer checking on the Internet I realized There was an issue with my network card (Broadcom BCM431. I first tried to install the drivers using Ndiswrapper with not succes. Finally, I was able to use the b43 driver by installing b43-fwcutter. Now the driver is shown and active in the Hardware Drivers Utilily. I am even connected to my Wireless Network. However, I cant load any website. I have checked the parameters in the network set up. I have even tried different options, like static or dinamic IP. But I cant load any website.
I am Using Ubuntu 10.04 fresh install connected to internet via VPN Network.Internet works fine i can dowload mail and send. But for some reason i cant load some webpages like Facebook, Adobe and etc.I install all the newest programs Java, Flash anything.I'm runnung Firefox 3.6.9.I tried everything disabled IPV6, Proxy. But nothing solved it
Two very simmilar laptops connected to the same WiFi router loading the same web pages. Firefox on Windows does that for 3 secons, while Firefox on Ubuntu needs 1-3 minutes to load the same page. What could be the reason for this? Any idea how to fix it? The laptop with Ubuntu runs 10.04 LTS (lucid), Firefox is 3.6.10 and on any other WiFi network it loads the web pages really faster but why is much slower than Windows now?When testing the speed on URL...Ubuntu loads times faster than Windows. The WiFi router has been reseted. Firefox has been started in -safe-mode, both didn't help.
browsers consistently hanging and not fully loading web pages. this happens in all the browsers i have tried. Opera and Chromium and Firefox. This only happens in Ubuntu. All the other computer in this house load fine and this windows side of this computer loads the pages the right way. At this point i don't know what to do but keep hitting stop and reload and few time till the page loads. can anyone help with this? Also I have tried to clear the cashes. One question where do the temporary Internet files go so I can manually clean that folder out. And also Firefox isn't to bad and the other browsers I just don't like it that much as I like the opera.
I'm having trouble with Firefox hanging. It takes at least two attempts to launch, having to force the initial blank page to quit. Often it will freeze my desktop when loading new pages, and I have to force quit. I've upgraded to 3.6.17 but no difference. The Mozilla help page suggests disabling add-ons to find the problem, but to no avail. Chrome works OK but I'd rather use Firefox.
The same network environment, no matter which browser I use, my fedora 13 always works slower than windows XP on loading web pages. Others are better than windows -- like memory management...(I directly feel that). applications running more smoothly than those in windows xp.
I want to know how could I make it faster on loading web pages.
I am currently using Open SuSE 11.3 and connect to the internet through a fixed wireless terminal (CDMA Wireless modem), Huawei ETS-1201 with BSNL connection. The problem is that, after dialling and connecting to the internet, some pages dont load randomly. Sometimes, Google loads quite fine, but other times, it is just stuck and I have to reload the page several times. When I connect through Windows, I have no such problem. I have used Fedora, Ubuntu and Sabayon but the same problem exists. I don't want to return to Windows but is frustrated with my web experience on linux.
I am trying to set up my Apache server with FastCGI as the CGI engine. It will be mostly running PHP, but I may add Perl or something else later. I started from a completely fresh install of Ubuntu 11.04 with every update available. I used the install CD to install a LAMP server as part of the system install.I am using the tutorial at URL...to add the FastCGI functionality. I am having some problems with getting everything to work.The first problem was that apache2-suexec-custom wouldn't accept a different document root. I fixed that by compiling apache2-suexec from source with the document root changed to the correct path.
The next problem is that every php page I load throws a 500 error. Apache's error logs show that FastCGI isn't returning the page data correctly to Apache.
I have been investigating some security precautions over the past several months. I use Ubuntu now instead of windows and FIrefox browser also. I have installed BetterPrivacy, WOT, NoSCript and a few other add ons. I have SELinux, ClamAV, AIDE, and chkrootkit installed for Ubuntu.
When we browse certain web sites, we get an error about the server being reset. However, when I put the Ubuntu install cd in and browse with Firefox, obviously with no add ons or settings changed, we can browse to the site with no problems. We are trying to be secure on the internet and I don't want to lower or get rid of any of the settings / add ons we added. What would cause servers to reset when using Firefox / Ubuntu with browser add ons / OS addons?
I recently bought my laptop (Fujitsu nh540) and installed FC14 on it. I have Integrated WLAN Atheros HB97 (IEEE 802.11b/g/n) (more info here about the config) running on: 18.104.22.168-91.fc14.i686.PAE
Since I installed FC I've had problems with the internet. In any browser pages load very slow, it looks like the browser waits some seconds, sometimes even 1-2 minutes until it actually starts to load the page.
Second thing I saw is that when it boots I keep getting: Determining IP information for eth0... failed; no link present. Check cable? [FAILED] But I have WiFi internet. I am not using a wired internet connection.
I installed madwifi driver (compiled it, after reading some info on google and it seems it should be good for my network) and it seems it's a bit better, but I still have to wait some seconds until it starts loading pages. I tried different browsers, it makes no difference. On my other 2 laptops I have no problems, the internet works fine, same goes for my android mobile phone. Another "nice" problem I noticed is that when compiz is enabled I see incoming video on skype black and the same black screen for some movies with some programs. After disablig compiz, all works for video.
I'm running Suse 11.1 KDE 3.5. My wireless is working absolutely slow. Pages aren't loading fast and I timeout when trying to do online updates. Here's some information:

I' have FC10,firefox3.0.4it take ages to load any page.the d/l speed is good .but while loading pages it takes a lot of time!while on XP everything works fine even though the the firefox version being an earlier one than FC10
I'm very new to Linux, and I have ran a Windows XP server before, with a Apache2 Server software for Windows. and didn't have any problems with it, but I really want to set this server up with Linux.
The server is running, but the only thing that comes up in the browser, is the html pages, the pages call all the images from a folder /images/ but for some reason I can't get it to pull the folder up. None of the graphics show on any of the pages.
I also have a VirtualHost setup, and have another website set up in the DocumentRoot with the 2nd site, but it won't come up ether, even tho it is listed as the 2nd VirtualHost, and have that folder set up as the DocumentRoot.
I'm just using IP Addresses for now till I get this all sorted out.So if I enter the IP the main page comes up, just no graphics. if I enter the IP Address/2ndSiteFolder/ I get a directory listing with the 2nd site folder listed, so now if I click on the 2ndSiteFolderName, it comes up as IP/2ndSiteFolder/2ndSiteFolder/ Now the 2nd site comes up, and so does all the Graphics for that site, even if I go to some of the other subfolders site. So its just weird. I don't know what I need to do to get this to work right.
I know it has to do with setting up the folders for VirtualHost, I just don't know what it is. I have been working on this for a week, and I'm not getting anywhere..
I've a folder named "lynx" in my desktop . It contains ebooks - pdfs,chms etc . The problem is sometimes when i open the folder in nautilus , the folder keep loading forever and sometimes it shows two or three files and keep on loading . But at some other times , folder contents are displayed just as any other folder(i.e normal ).
I installed Drupal and there is only one site. It I access the website [url] where Drupal is installed I can easily see it functioning properly. But on internet it is not loading properly the colors etc are not visible properly.
I tried to make that as short and descriptive as I could. There are certain web pages that I try to visit on my Linux computer that either respond after more than a minute of waiting for a response or, more often than not, simply do not respond at all - leaving the browser "waiting for xxxxx". Yet when I try those same pages on my GF's Windows computer, connected to the same router/DSL connection, the pages load quickly and without problems. Both systems are running Firefox.. One of the pages, for reference, [URL]..
I've just installed Ubuntu 9.1 amd64 and I have a problem with acces to some web pages (i.e amd.com, adobe.com). I looks like bowser load a page but then stopping it last infinitely. I have Ubuntu 9.1 x64Atheros wireless adapter connected to ZyXEL access point.Parallel Windows machine which connected to te same router has no prblem with access to those sites. I tried different browsers, different setting of DNSeven set up different versions of 9.1 (x64, x86)
At the moment I regularly use Image Magick convert command to convert PDF's to images which is great but I would like to only convert some of the pages in the PDF instead of them all. Im sure the function must be available I just haven't been able to find it even after bashing google for a few days.
Code: convert *full.pdf test%d.jpg this is the command I use at the moment.
I am a web developer and fonts are crucial to my job.All i want is firefox to render the fonts just like if im on a windows machine, is this possible?For example i install tahoma and microsoft core fonts but in the FF they're not appearing right. This is a straggle to my work and believe me, i 've searched the entrire internet for a solution!
I know this is off Ubuntu topic, but, imo, Ubuntu is the best forum for answers on the internet.Anyone using one of these online editors ?I use it as integrated into a CMS, but would like to build it into some web pages - with sole purpose of EDITING MY WEBPAGES ONLINE. Kompozer is great, but has a mack truck hole that may never get filled and I find the (usage) simplicity of ckedit attractive.Problem is I am not able to grasp how to do it.The examples are gobbledeegook to me. I mean i try them, they work, but do not address how to integrate (maybe just over my head).Installation and usage is trivial, I just cannot grasp how (if possible) to integratethe editor INTO a webpage - better yet, direct it to a webpage.
Pages do not load on certain sites (such as LinkedIn and Which? for example). The sites themselves load but when I click on links the pages load forever. With Which? I can close FF and open it again and then the link loads but after a few clicks they stop loading. It happens on all browsers (at least I tried FF and Chromium) but OK on Windows.
Out of no where Firefox has just decided to not load web pages anymore. I've restarted my router, restarted my wifi card, restarted my computer, *completly* uninstalled Firefox then reinstalled it, still no luck at all. Anyone have any idea how to fix this? I'm stuck using Google Chrome now, I like it but I need the Add-Ons FireFox has (AdBlock Plus, Xmarks, DownThemAll, etc.)
Here are my specs: Ubuntu 10.04 64bit Acer Aspire 3680 Intel Celeron M 1.6GHz Single Core 1GiB RAM 40GiB Hard Drive
Basically all it does is sit there saying "Connecting to www.google.com..." for like 15seconds then gives me one of two pages, "The connection has timed out - The server at www.google.com is taking too long to respond." or "Unable to connect - Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at www.google.com."Google Chrome, Skype, Ubuntu's built in messenger, System Update, and so on connect just fine to the internet.
