Ubuntu Installation :: Firefox Won't Start After Upgrade?

May 1, 2010

Just upgraded to 10.04 and Firefox will no longer start. I get the tab that says starting firefox, and then the tab disappears, and I never get a window.When I try to start via terminal it says (something along the lines of):Attempting to load libmoonloaderxpiSegmentation FaultI tried logging out and back in, no dice; restarted, no dice; uninstalled and reinstalled firefox, no dice.Running x64, if that matters, on a pretty decent laptop. I would describe my technical knowledge of Linux as moderate.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade From 8.04 To 10.04 - Won't Start Up

Oct 13, 2010

Since I noticed a new version of Ubuntu (10) was out and I was still running an old version (8.04) I thought about upgrading. With the update manager is selected update to 10.04 and everything went on it's way.

During the process I got asked if I wanted to update the GRUB loader. Since I also use Windows and with a previous update of GRUB I couldn't start into it anymore I selected, "keep this version" (which I think is now causing this trouble).

The upgrade completed and restarted, however, Ubuntu now doesn't start anymore.
I get prompted with:

mount: mounting none on /dev failed: No such device udevd(896): error getting socket: Invalid argument ...

edit: I started Ubuntu with the live CD and typed gedit /booot/grub/menu.lst which gave me a blank file. Is that normal?

Fedora Installation :: Firefox Won't Start From Desktop

Oct 7, 2009

This is a new install of fedora 11 with Neville NewGuy at the controls. I cannot start Firefox from the desktop. Nothing happens (at all, nada, nix, zilch). When I run Firefox in a TermSess as su i get the following warning:

(firefox:3168): GnomeUI-WARNING **: While connecting to session manager:
None of the authentication protocols specified are supported.

and a GUI error box An error occurred while loading or saving configuration information for Firefox. Some of your configuration settings may not work properly.

Followed by these details Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See [URL] for information. (Details - 1: Failed to get connection to session: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.)

But Firefox starts OK. I checked the URL specified and then made sure the nfslock service was started but I can't find a gconf service (should I have found it??).

Ubuntu Installation :: Firefox Dead After 9.04 To 9.10 Upgrade

Jan 8, 2010

Did an upgrade today from 9.04 to 9.10. As far as I can tell, everything is working, with the exception of Firefox 3.5.6 with new install. I've attempted an uninstall and install. Tried the following with 3.5.6:URL...I finally found that if I use sudo (or gksudo) I can run firefox at the command prompt. Any other time I run it, it just shows an icon on the lower bar and then it disappears, but within the system monitor it shows Firefox and will show as many as you run the icon with.

I've deleted the entire .mozilla directory, and manually removed all the firefox info fro /usr/bin also before a reinstall. I assume it is either a strange permission issue or some link related issue."which firefox" shows:/usr/bin/firefox and the 3.5.6 files are located /usr/lib/firefox-3.5.6 . Any help would be great, I'm at a loss at this point. I'm sure it's something simple, but it's a royal PITA.I have nxserver on the machine, if that means anything and there was a session locally as well as one remote during the upgrade (using the same account).

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Print From Firefox - After 10.04 Upgrade

Dec 21, 2010

I have been at a loss to figure out what is wrong with firefox this time. But I updated to 10.04 because I was two updates behind and now I still have 1 issue I haven't figured out. It isn't huge, but just annoying. I can't print from firefox. I have a wireless printer hp officejet J4680, and get the following error in the messages log.

Not sure what the translation for this is. This is what I get when I try to print from firefox. Opera works, office works, just doing an lpr command on something I had firefox save to a file works. So I don't think it is drivers, the update or anything else outside of something again ridiculous firefox doesn't have working yet. Anyone run into this or know where the patch is. I haven't been able to find anything. Have tried purging cups reinstalling. updating firefox etc. just nothing hit the target. Like I said firefox is the only thing not working. I can print from opera and office.

Ubuntu Installation :: XServer Will Not Start After Upgrade 9.10 To 10.04?

May 2, 2010

I upgraded to 10.04 and when trying to boot, the computer would hang at the splash screen. Going into recovery mode showed nothing in the log files. The Xorg and gdm logs were zero bytes but had the proper timestamp. I tried and tried, but could not get it to boot until I removed the nvidia-current package. Then the computer will boot, but the screen is partially corrupted with just a blue background. I can hit enter, then type my password and I can actually login, but I can't see a thing. I can cycle through the resolutions with Ctrl +, but the screen just still has a blue background and nothing else. Trying to boot in failsafe X mode gives the same screen. I tried putting the vesa driver in the xorg.conf, but no change.

I've tried the i915.modeset=0 boot option. I've tried the "xforcevesa" boot option, but nothing will give me a readable screen. As soon as I re-installed the nvidia-current package and ran nvidia-xconfigure, the problem came back and it hangs again.At this point, I'm stuck. I would settle for a plain VGA screen at this point, but I can't even seem to get that. I've read several posts here with similar problems and tried every solution put forth, I think, but have not found a solution.When the upgrade wanted to install the new /etc/default/grub, I kept my old one. I compared the two files at the time, but I didn't see anything new, but maybe I missed something. What new items if any does the upgrade put into /etc/default/grub?

Ubuntu Installation :: System Won't Start After An Upgrade

Mar 27, 2011

I talked a friend into trying Ubuntu, and installed it via wubi. So far, he likes it a lot, but today I checked his computer out, and saw that he had a lot of updates pending. There was a kernel update, openoffice, grub, the whole lot. So, I started the update, and, when it finished, the system froze.

I restarted the PC, but now Ubuntu says that the root partition is not ready. When I open a diagnostic shell, it says "Root filesystem check failed". However, an fsck works just fine, and I can see all the files in both Ubuntu and Windows.

There's only one real disk, as far as I can see, /dev/sda1, and it's the Windows disk. The Linux root is a /dev/loop5 which points to a file under Windows. I suppose it's the wubi way, although I'm not familiar with that.

There's a possibility that the Windows disk had errors while I was running Ubuntu; in fact, Ubuntu said something to the effect while booting the first time it failed.

What can I do to boot normally?

Ubuntu Installation :: Panel Won't Start After 11.04 Upgrade

Apr 28, 2011

After upgrading from 10.10 to 11.04, it appears gnome-panel won't start when I login in classic, classic with no compiz, or even failsafe/safe mode. What happens is the login will start, and I'll see an empty wallpaper with a cursor that switches between the hourglass circle spinner and a regular cursor.

If I hit alt+f2, the run dialog will appear, but immediately be killed (or something).

I am able to login with Unity as well as the recovery console. On the recovery console, when I try to launch the panel, I see this:

[blah blah blah]
b2b97000-b2ba8000 r-xp 00000000 08:05 2101405 /usr/lib/gio/modules/libgioremote-volume-monitor.sofish: Job 1, gnome-panel terminated by signal SIGABRT (Abort)

Since Unity doesn't work with focus-follows-mouse, but still tries to use focus-follows-mouse, I'm actually using IceWM to report this.

Ubuntu Installation :: Firefox Painfully Slow After Upgrade (Not DNS)

Jan 2, 2010

I recently upgraded from 9.04 to 9.10, and Firefox is painfully slow to use. Changing between already loaded tabs takes almost a second. Scrolling through a loaded tab is also slow and jerky. Other programs (e.g. Thunderbird, or just browsing the filesystem) also seem slower when Firefox is running.

I'm running Firefox 3.5.6. My PC is Compaq Presario 2200 laptop (about four years old) with 768 MB RAM. As another data point, I also have the most recent version of Linux Mint installed on the same PC, running Firefox 3.5.3, with no problems. I've searched, and some problems have apparently been due to DNS problems, but I have problems when I'm offline (wifi physically removed), looking at webpages saved on my disk, which are already fully loaded, so it's not a DNS problem. I did try steps 1 - 7

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Save .hqx Files After Firefox Upgrade?

Jan 9, 2010

I can't save files with the .hqx extension for some reason. Firefox was recently upgraded to 3.5.7 via Update Manager. Nothing happens when I click on a link pointing to a .hqx file no download status window. I can see that something is trying to download but it is not saved to disk. (Yes, I checked /dev/null first).My first stop was to edit > preferences > applications to see if the extension definitions got borked during the upgrade. Everything seemed normal except for the fact that I couldn't see an entry for .hqx files and no apparent method for manually adding it to the list. I went to another site that I administer and successfully download a .pdf file

After I updated the Ubuntu on my Lenovo S10 netbook from 10.04 to 10.10 Firefox crashes when I try to open it.

Software :: Firefox 3.0.4 Upgrade Installation ?

Jan 29, 2009

I just recently upgraded my Firefox browser from version 1.5 to 3.0.4. on Mandriva 2007 Powerpack. I had several problems with the installation, but I need some advice with this one problem.

With the new 3.0.4 installation when I press the "Clear Cache" button within Preferences, a cache does clear somewhere but I get no change of state on the "Clear Cache" button and a blank applet screen appears. If I go into the files to the .../home/scott/.mozilla/firefox/85if17gs.default/Cache folder, I find 54MB of cached files stored. I tried deleting the files through Konqueror and I get a screen saying "I can not delete the files"

I have my cache limited to 50 MB in the Preferences section. Where is the new cache folder ? Should I delete the entire Cache folder ? Will Firefox create a new one ? The /.mozilla/... directory was created with the Firefox 1.5 installation, I never checked to see if the directory had been revised with the upgrade to 3.0.4. Any ideas ?

Ubuntu Installation :: Hard Disk Needs No Password In Order To Mount / Firefox Can't Start

Apr 30, 2010

well yesterday I upgraded my karmic to lynx. So far so good, overall much improved plus I love the new theme. Now the problem, I share my Firefox/Thunderbird profile (stored in my secondary HD) with WinXP (dual boot box). Since karmic, before I opened Firefox/Thunderbird, I had to mount the 2ndary HD which of course prompted me for a password and then everything worked fine. In case I forgot to mount the disk then Firefox popped the following msg: Firefox is either opened or in use.Now, lucid strangely mounts my HD without a password, more peculiarly I have r-w-e permissions and on top of that Firefox/Thunderbird gives me the silly msg!

Tried to unmount/mount back but still no password. I end up believing that this Firefox hesitation to start (based on karmic experience) is related with the password thing...or not?

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Start Totem After Faulty Upgrade

I started #aptitude safe-upgrade and switched to another user. Gdm showed the error and hung down the system. So I did reboot. After reboot if I start totem I see such a result:


$ totem

ImportError: No module named pygtk


I tried to complete the upgrade with aptitude safe-upgrade, but it shows that all packages are up to date. I am afraid that some other packages are affected by this crash. How can I repair system?

Ubuntu Installation :: Metacity Does Not Auto-start After Upgrade To 10.04

Apr 30, 2010

I've just upgraded Ubuntu 9.10 to 10.04 on my eeePC. Everything seems to be fine so far except one thing: metacity does not want to start automatically, so I have to run metacity --replace each time after login.

I've removed Compiz installed previously and set window manager to /usr/bin/metacity using gconf-editor, but still Ubuntu starts without window manager running. As a workaround I've enabled session state saving, so metacity now starts together with my other applications, however I would like to find a prettier solution.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Upgrade - MySQL 5.1 Does Not Want To Start Or Stop

Apr 30, 2010

I upgraded from Kubuntu 9.10 to 10.04. 32 bit. The install had not finished as it barked at tripwire config. I have had to stop it and continue from command prompt. More or less the install went OK. After the install, mysql 5.1 does not want to start or stop. Commands
/etc/init.d/mysql stop ( or 'stop mysql' , or service mysql stop' )
/etc/init.d/mysql start

Do not finish - do not return to command prompt. No log messages insyslog or mysql logs. Say, I do 'service mysql start', the command does not return, I click Ctrl+C, then repeat the command. This displays :
'start: Job is already running: mysql'.
Of course mysql is not running. I've tried to remove and reinstall the packages. No result. There is 'stop mysql' command in one of install scripts that hangs.

Ubuntu Installation :: Gdm Won't Start (reboots Machine) After 11.04 Upgrade?

This happens even if I choose the previous kernel I had been using in grub. Safe mode allows me to boot to a terminal, and a USB flash drive boot still works.Is there a way for me to dig into the logs to find out what is causing this?

Ubuntu Installation :: Unity/Gnome Does Not Start After 10.10 To 11.04 Upgrade?

May 18, 2011

I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 11.04. Most of the upgrade went well except for one package (mpd). Ubuntu rebooted and went into a sexy-ish minimal grub. I launched Ubuntu, everything went fine. The only thing I can't seem to get working is Unity/Gnome. When I log on with kdm and choose 'default' or Ubuntu Classic, everything loads fine except for the taskbar/whatever interface. (I usually run wmfs instead of kde/gnome and I'm not sure which interface is currently installed right now. I have both kubuntu-desktop and ubuntu. )

I can still, however, right click and see my desktop/desktop icons. The only thing that does not load is the gnome/unity interface itself. I need it to manage my fonts to fix my wmfs fonts that got screwed up. (I'm using a bitmap font and it doesn't work unless I activate whatever settings I have to activate. )

I am not home right now and this was written on a phone. I apologize if this whole post seems confusing/total blabber. edit: Ubuntu Classic works fine, but Ubuntu/Default does not automatically launc the Unity interface.
