Ubuntu :: Programs Fail To Redirect Firefox To Webpages?

Apr 19, 2011

Since upgrading to Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal, I have this problem where programs to redirect me to webpages. It just loads up my home page and acts like it's finished. Even if I have Firefox previously open, nothing happens.Programs this happens with are Apport (when I try to file bug-reports), Tomboy (if I click "get add-ins"), and Liferea until I edited a setting telling it not to use the default gnome browser but to use Firefox.I know the first thing you'd think hearing that is that my web browser isn't set in my gnome default applications, but it is. When I open firefox in terminal this error pops up

LIBDBUSMENU-GTK-CRITICAL **: dbusmenu_menuitem_property_set_shortcut: assertion `gtk_accelerator_valid(key, modifier)' failed

Ubuntu :: Firefox Won't Redirect To Webpages From Bug Report & Others (11.04 Natty Narwhal)

Apr 6, 2011

I think from upgrading to Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal. Whenever programs ask me to send reports (bug reports) they fail to redirect me to the proper launch pad bug report page. It just loads up my home page and acts like it's finished. Even if I have Firefox previously open, nothing happens.

Liferea was doing the same thing until I changed it from using the Gnome Default to Firefox. Perhaps this is a gnome default failure or something?

Ubuntu :: Load Any Webpages On Firefox In 10.10

Dec 5, 2010

I recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 x64bit and am having a problem with Firefox. I'm currently dual booting windows 7 and Ubuntu. My net works perfectly on Windows 7 and even on Ubuntu I was able to download a NVIDIA driver and 193MB worth of updates for Ubuntu. I just can't seem to load any webpages on Firefox. I have DHCP enabled but I also tried a static IP address but still had no success. I also tried adjusting my proxy settings in Firefox cycling through no proxy, Auto-detect proxy settings etc. but i still could not load any pages.

The error message is always "The connection has timed out. The server at ubuntu.com is taking too long to respond." I've tried other websites and can't load them. As a point of interest I was able to access my routers web config page.

Ubuntu :: WebPages Not Compatible With Firefox

Jul 13, 2011

I just recently had to have Ubuntu installed on my computer, and of course, the Web Browser they put on here is Firefox, which I love, however...... Before I had Ubuntu, I had Windows, but due to a problem with a nasty virus, and then not having the original product code for Windows, I couldn't get Windows back on my computer so they put lovely Ubuntu on it. Now, I am a Manager at a hotel, and I have to be able to view my hotel security cameras from home when I am not at work. It is an IP web address and it is not compatible with Firefox. My question is this. Is there any plugin out there that would make webpages that are non compatible with Firefox able to be viewed?

Slackware :: Firefox Default Fonts Will Not Display On Webpages?

Feb 12, 2010

Recently I was creating an image in GIMP when I needed to add a new font. I went to my mounted XP drive and copied the file I wanted over into /usr/X11R6/share/fonts/TTF then I went to the font installer as root and installed the font system wide. After that I reloaded GIMP and the font was available. A little while later I went to browse the internet and when I loaded up firefox, it showed a properly formatted and spaced page with no text on it at all. If I highlighted a line, the invisible text would copy to the clipboard properly and I could read it that way. I figured it might've been a just a FF issue, but when I loaded up Seamonkey, I wound up with the same problem. I'm using Firefox 3.0.16 and Seamonkey 2.0.1. I tried going into the preferences and changing the default font, but no matter what I change it to, it doesn't fix it. Slack 1.2 running kernel I use slapt-get to stay up to date and as far as I can tell i have the latest patches and pkgs.


bash-3.1$ fc-cache -rv
/usr/share/fonts/OTF: caching, new cache contents: 23 fonts, 0 dirs
/usr/share/fonts/TTF: caching, new cache contents: 91 fonts, 0 dirs
/usr/share/fonts/Type1: caching, new cache contents: 64 fonts, 0 dirs

Ubuntu Installation :: Certain Programs Fail To Run After Upgrade?

May 3, 2010

I have a laptop running Ubuntu 10.04 and also two dual boot desktop machines, both running Windows XP and Ubuntu. I have upgraded one of the desktops to Ubuntu 10.04 and since doing so Thunderbird will not run on the laptop or the desktop. On clicking the launcher there are signs of activity for a few seconds and then they stop and Thunderbird fails to open. Also there is no longer any sound on the desktop that I have upgraded. I am reluctant now to upgrade the remaining desktop in case I have the same problems

how to get Thunderbird running again, please. I have already spent a week unsuccessfully trying to get the sound working and have abandoned it, but I would like Thunderbird to start running again.

Ubuntu Installation :: Openoffice / Firefox Fail Their Checksum

Oct 28, 2010

Using a 10.04 LTS installation disc, fresh are my install Firefox, multiple software, and the software updater thing did not work. Figured maybe I messed something up. I installed 10.04 LTS about 6 times from scratch, no other OS on the system. They all had issues loading software, I click on whatever it goes to launch and nothing ever comes up. I started doing updates through the command prompt using

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

Then multiple packages broke. Tried sudo apt-get -f install but I keep getting an error that openoffice and firefox fail their checksum. Click on upgrade by 10.10 version gives me the screen that says are you sure, with all the information for the distro and then brings up a window that says download 2 out of 2 and it also crashes. So I figured alright, maybe the CD version I have is messed up. I downloaded the 10.10 iso image and burned it three times. Two of my live cds take me boot me to the purple ubuntu starting screen but nothing is displayed except for a little icon with a keyboard and the disabled person at the bottom. Then my computer reboots it does that continuously.

Fedora :: Firefox After Autoten Fail - No Internet Access

Jul 3, 2009

I just tried installing Google Earth on my fresh 64 bit Fedora 11 install using autoten, which I used earlier to install java and some codecs. I also used leighs guide to install 64 bit flash and remove nspluginwrapper. All was working fine. Then I decided to use autoten to install googleearth. It failed early giving an error saying:

First error was:
resolving dnmouse.org... failed: Name or service not known.
wget: unable to resolve host address `dnmouse.org'
Error getting repository data for googleearth, repository not found
# checking installation..
Size of report file is 0 lines

Error window opened up saying:
Google earth, was not installed correctly, please check you have an active connection. From this point on, Firefox cannot access the internet. I can ping google.com and dnmouse.com successfully. I did the update that included the new firefox 3.5, so accessing the internet and my connection is active. Konversation is working correctly. Just firefox is having the problem. Message: Firefox can't find the server at start.fedoraproject.org, or google, or redhat etc.
I renamed the .mozilla folder, and restarted firefox, no luck. My /etc/resolve.conf contains the correct nameservers. Also tried a reboot, no luck, still have active eth0 connection but no FF internet access.

Software :: Firefox And Wine Silently Fail To Open - Where Do Find An Error Report

Jul 30, 2009

Firefox 3.1 beta 3 won't load. When I open the application, the little bouncy icon bounces, and the task manager shows "Firefox Web Browser", but this only stays this way for about 15 seconds then just goes away. No error or anything.

I've had this identical problem when I try to open certain programs with Wine too. Is there some place I can find a detailed error report on these failures?

Ubuntu :: Firefox Restrict Other Programs From Recognizing Keyboard

Mar 3, 2011

Every time I look at firefox (i.e. bring it to the foreground), and when I go back to programs like terminal, GVIM, or pidgin, they won't recognize my keyboard unless I click on some specific thing. For example, I have to click the top of GVIM and pidgin and drag it around a bit, then I can type in those programs. For terminal I have to switch to a different tab and switch back before I can do anything. For some other programs, simply pressing "control-z" to undo will make the program not recognize the keyboard until some action with the mouse is done. This started to happen a few days ago after I tried to install scim to type Chinese (may or may not have any thing to do with it).

OpenSUSE :: Basefont Tag In Firefox - Non-mozilla Programs

Aug 13, 2010

This may (or may not) duplicate yester64's post but I'm trying to learn html and I've been going crazy with the <basefont /> tag. KompoZer, Opera, and Firefox all ignore it. However, any <font /> tag I use works with no problems What's really maddening is that I copied the file to the windows side and IE works wonderfully with the same file although Firefox still ignores it! I keep windows around for One and only one program - tomtom. I would cry at mozilla except that the same problem is occuring in those other non-mozilla programs.

How to can I host my own domain by myself for free?I've installed phpmyAdmin, ehcp, filezilla, mySql, mySql query browser, proftpd, gforge, wordpress, activeperl.I'm not sure either how to make a domain name for my IP address and how to use dynamic DNS.

2) I'm lost with tons of different programs, I don't know where to start from now, there are many methods. I have made many user names and passwords...
3) What to do? I don't want a local web page, All I want is get my web page on Internet where anyone else can visit it.

Ubuntu :: Some Webpages Don't Work In Browsers?

I've tried on three different computers with dual boot Windows and Ubuntu and get the same results...If I boot into windows, I can browse the pages with no problems, however, in Ubuntu these pages just hang at certain points...Is there some setting I can adjust to improve web performance?[URL]Orbrowse by location, a warning sign appears, click 'agree' and wait endlessly...Why would these pages work correctly on Windows, but not in Ubuntu?I HATE having to boot into Windows, so if I can avoid it I will!
