How can I remove Namoroka (3.6.12pre) and reinstall firefox? I already tried the sudo apt-get purge firefox-3.6 but to no avail. Can anybody tell me what the ppa packages just are? Is it correct that they are Ubuntu specific packages for optimizing applications for Ubuntu?
I have problem running Firefox 3.6.5pre called Namoroka
In Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 I have installed F/f 3.5 and 3.6,showing in Synaptic and also 3.6.5pre which does not appear in the synaptic list as it was installed direct from Mozilla. If I try to run 3.5 or 3.6 Namoroka still grabs the command.
I would like to revert to the recognised/updated version of 3.6 (already installed)and completely remove all redundant packages. Mozilla only suggests removing the profile but I need that when the recognised version is allowed to run.
whenever i go to videos and click on a video, namoroka just freezes or hangs (it will become a little dark grayish in color). i will wait for some time for it to become normal but, no matter how long i wait, it is just like that. what is wrong with namoroka?
Thus far I have had no luck. I have installed Namoroka from the ppa repo and got flash working nicely but java is another matter. I followed instructions to install the jre manually but no matter what I do it will not display in FF's "aboutlugins". I have to ask if Namoroka is using the default folder: /home/username/.mozilla/plugins/? Because that is where I created the symlink to the java plugin.
I have upgraded my system browser to Namoroka (Namoroka/3.6.2pre) from firefox (3.0).
But it is creating many problem on my browsers. Like i am not able to open new orkut just because they support only firefox and also i am not able to watch facebook videos (It always says certain video is unavailable but at the same point of time it is available in other browsers).
Also do tell me can i remove this browser from my system and install original firefox , what changes do i need to do on my system.Currently i am using Ubuntu 9.10 .
I installed Firefox 4.0 beta on Ubuntu and it made Firefox into Namoroka. Now I want to revert back to the stable Firefox but I am unable to do it. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling but none of this works.
I just installed an update through update manager that upgrade my Firefox 3.6 to 3.6.2pre which is a beta release. I didnt realize I was doing this. There are some things that I don't like about this beta version, so I want to roll back.How do I do that the right way?'d really like to retain my shortcuts, extensions, etc so I'm not to keen on a uninstall/reinstall.
Ever since I upgraded to Namoroka a few months ago I can't view video from ....., flash videos, java etc... I always keep my machine updated with the update mgr, did some plugin updates but stil no videos. I'm getting tired of copying and pasting url's into epiphany each time I want to see a video. I'm running Namoroka ver. 3.6.5pre mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu canonical - 1.0 on Karmic.
I ran the update manager a few weeks ago and for whatever reason, it downgraded me from Firefox 3.6 to Namoroka (Firefox 3.6 beta release from what I understand). Having had Namoroka before, and knowing how unstable it was, I immediately removed it and reinstalled Firefox 3.5 from Linuxappfinder.com. Upon this last update, Ubuntu again downgraded me from Firefox 3.5 to Namoroka. I am worried about updating my other computer because of this problem.
Firefox 3.6 "Namoroka" stopped working after a recent update. Clicking on my panel launcher or the launcher in the applications menu does nothing. I even tried starting Firefox from the terminal and got an error message: "(firefox-bin:3592): GLib-WARNING **: g_set_prgname() called multiple times", whatever that means.I would be willing to rip out Firefox and start all over again but I don't know how to remove the 3.6 version. I couldn't find a method in the Software Center for doing that graphically.
Since yesterday firefox (Namoroka) has been constantly freezing; prior to yesterday it worked perfectly. I've tried un-installing and re-installing, but that didn't fix it. I even tried un-installing Namoroka and installing firefox 3.5 (via apt-get install firefox-3.5), but somehow I continue to get firefox 3.6 (aka Namoroka). Anyone know how to resolve my Namoroka issues or how to install the seemingly more stable 3.5 version? I don't know if this makes a difference, but I originally had installed ubuntu and then installed kde (kubuntu-desktop) desktop on top of it. And yes, I've checked my sources.list to make sure mozilla-daily repository is not listed.
Recently I have installed Fedora 10. It comes with firefox 3.xx by default. Now I was wondering if there is any way through which i can update it to 3.5 version though yum. I have tried yum update firefox but it did not work and returns following messages Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit Setting up Update Process No Packages marked for Update I know that one way to update is download the latest Tar package and use it, but I want to totally remove my previous installation and use solely one package i.e. firefox 3.5.
I messed up with my Firefox installation so that I could install a newer version. But when I downloaded from Mozilla it was plain tarball with nothing but a bunch of binary files in it. How do I reinstall Firefox to the exact previous state from repos? And what if I don't wanna install that old 3.0 but the newer version?
I sudo apt-get removed Firefox from my system in favor of Google Chrome. However, Ubuntu still prompts me to upgrade Firefox. How do I stop that? Also, whenever I click on HTML files, Firefox is still the one that loads by default. How can that be if I've sudo apt-get removed it? And Firefox is still in my Applications->Internet menu... So, was my sudo apt-get remove successful?
so i want to remove all cookies from my firefox, seems like lots of ways to do this, none of which work?
tried, edit pref privacy show cookies remove all cookies all cookies appear gone but on restart are all back again tried tools view all cookies remove all cookies
same result. anyone any idea how i can do this tried to manually delate cookie file from ~/.mozilla/firefox/somecode.default but that didn't work either, failing that how do i remove firefox and all config files with yum, like --purge option for .deb systems?
I installed an addon on Firefox, which i am not completely sure it is safe. (Name of the addon is Ivacy, you can google it, it's to use a VPN) Anyway, i thought that maybe that addon could install a keylogger or something. So I uninstalled it, and then I thought, what if it infected firefox? (I know i am paranoid) So i uninstalled firefox by using Yast, then reinstalled it, and my previous addons and history were still there. For me it means that uninstalling by Yast does not remove all traces of Firefox. Please do you have a way to remove all traces of Firefox? As i told you previously, I'm new to Linux, do you think that there is a risk for my PC when I install Firefox addons?
I'm on 9.10 x64 gnome.I hate firefox and want to remove it because I use chrome,but when I try to remove it it removes the java plugin.And when I try to install the java plugin alone, it installs firefox. Why are these dependencies of each other? Is there any way that I can remove ff without removing java?
How do i roll back firefox5beta to firefox4 and keep updating to the latest stable releases w/out upgrading to beta? The only extension that isn't working is FEBE which is incompatible w/ firefox5beta (profile, extension and preference backup). Have to use FEBE beta7 under Firefox4 so I don't think a compatible release for Firefox5beta is going to come out any time soon.
I recently upgraded (via Ubuntuzilla) to firefox 3.5.7 and now, every single time I close Firefox, the program seems to crash without quitting completely.
First, I receive an error saying that the program will not close and asks me if I want to Force Quite or Wait for it to close on its own. This has been happening ever since I upgraded to Karmic and if I just wait it usually quits fully after a couple seconds.
Now what happens is this: the window still closes, but if I try to reopen Firefox then I get this error stating that Firefox is already open and therefore cannot be opened again. The only way to get back into Firefox is to restart the entire computer. (Incidentally, this is the same problem that occurs whenever I try to Force Quit Firefox)
This now happens every single time I "close" Firefox.
Does anyone know the source of this error? Or a workaround?
