Ubuntu :: Firefox - Windows Firefox Webpage Building Difference?
Dec 22, 2010
I create/modify web pages on Ubuntu and on Ubuntu it looks good but on Firefox that runs on Windows it is all messed up. The pictures or text is not as intended and that is really annoying. What is the issue here?I really don't understand.
It takes a long time for firefox to actually find every website I go to. It sticks on looking for [URL] and then eventually finds it. It isn't the connection because I tested it and its fine. I am using Ubuntu 10.04 and firefox 3.6.3
I am newbie, and i am developing my website. My web-site's pages appears to be fine when i open in any browser (including IE, Firefox, Chrome) in windows.. but when i open the same website page in Ubuntu-Firefox the page has lots of css and font errors..is this a problem in ubuntu or my website? my website link: http://www.beakkon.com any suggestion on how to fix it? i am also attaching the snippet of a page of my website when it is opened in Ubuntu-firefox.
FireFox 3.6.17 HPLIP 3.10.2 with HP OfficeJet J4540 connected CUPS 1.4.3
When I print from a web page, it prints 3 pages from a web page that looks like it would print more than 3 pages. It seems like only the first, second and last sections of a web page is being printed. Is there an easy fix to this?
Ok so i end up downloading many tutorials on many different things and i read many of them every day. Every time i go to open one it pops up a notification asking me what i want to do, i want it to automatically "Display"
I have posted the following below on the Ubuntu Forums but have not got a satisfactory answer yet. My problem is as follows:I have installed Xubuntu on my machine to test a setup I want to to for my in-laws. Everything went well until I realised I have a problem loading some pages on Firefox. There is no error message but they are just stuck on loading and finally timing out. I have then downloaded Opera and I am showing the same problem. A bit of research showed it could be a IPV6 issue. I therefore disabled ipv6 in about:config and also /etc/modprobe.d/aliases - 'alias net-pf-10 ipv6' to alias 'net-pf-10 off ipv6'. No change - still can't get those pages loaded.

I cannot copy a portion of an entire webpage using Google Chrome or Firefox when copying downwards.
I've have this issue on the same machine with the following systems:
Debian 8 Jessie XFCe with XFCE 4.10 using Firefox or Google Chrome Xubuntu 14.04 with XFCE 4.10 and 4.12 using Firefox or Google Chrome Xubuntu 12.04 live cd using Firefox
This doesn't happen on the same machine with the following systems:
Debian 8 Jessie KDE using Firefox or Google Chrome Kubuntu 15.04 live DVD using Firefox LibreOffice Writer LibreOffice Calc Mousepad
Ex. Go to google.com and paste this in the search area:
can highlight by going upwards but not downwards xfce My mouse can highlight the first line starting with the word "ssh" and the last line ending with the word "everything ..."
My mouse cursor cannot go past the last line "expressions can match many items, but evidently not everything ..."
If I scroll upward, I can copy the entire webpage.
KDE 4.x I don't have this issue.
Using Win7 on a laptop with Firefox 41.0.2 and I'm able to scroll downwards without any issues using the same mouse that was connected to the machine with Xubuntu 14.04.
Sometimes I come across fixes for linux issues on websites. I copy the information and email it to myself for future reference in case I have to reinstall the OS again. I can do a ctrl A and ctrl c but then the entire website is copied. The ads on the side, etc.
If I put my left mouse cursor on the first word in a thread and drag/highlight downwards, my mouse cursor stops line 35 on the page. If I do the same thing but backwards, my mouse cursor goes all the way up the page. This only happens on Firefox and Google Chrome. This doesnt' happen with mousepad, Libre writer or Libre calc.
Firefox's Brazilian Portuguese Language Pack has not yet been ported to Firefox 4 so I got Mozilla's Firefox binary in my language, used Pat's Slackbuild for 13.1 and replaced Slack's Firefox with it. I tried compiling it localized from source using the Slackbuild in /source, but all I found to add to the configure options was a "--with-l10n-base=directory" option, which I made point to the pt-BR locale I'd downloaded from Mozilla, but it still compiled in en-US.
My question is: am I missing out on something like the cairo-tee option? If I am, has anyone had success in building a localized version of Firefox around here? How?
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?
How do I force Firefox to recognize a certain default firefox profile I have?
For whatever reason I can't get FF to show all of the add-ons I have. Yes, they are installed and they appear when as icons when I first boot up but after I close FF and start it again there are no icons (like Adblock).
Im using firefox version 3.6.12 and it functions fine. However when i use the latest version of this addon https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...11377/#reviews the screen goes grey and firefox crashes. Restarting firefox only results in more crashes. I had a older version of this addon-1.5 i believe that worked fine.
I installed the add-on Greasemonkey for Firefox and since then firefox won't open. If I try to open it on safe mode nothing comes up, it I try it a secont time it tells me that Firefox is already running and if I try to open it normally it shows it on the bottom as if it was opening and then it dissapears.
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 have been testing Fedora 15 and I love it, everything works fine and is so nice but... I want to instal FireFox with another idiom becouse it is the only thing that my Fedora has in English everything else is Spanish. How do I change the lenguage from FireFox from English to Spanish ?
After several site:centos.org searches on Google and not finding anything remotely related to this question, I ask, how do I update Firefox 3.0 to Firefox 3.5 without losing any of my settings, history, bookmarks ,etc.?
This is really odd - all of a sudden, my firefox says "Firefox can't find the server at www.google.com" , and my pidgin will not connect saying host not found.However, I am typing this on the same computer using Opera. his is absolutely insane. I have no idea what caused it.. command line nslookup works great, and resolves everything.But firefox and pidgin will not resolve anything.
The only odd thing is this in messages: Sep 8 12:07:41 tklaptop NetworkManager: nm_ip4_config_add_nameserver: assertion `nameserver != s' failed Sep 8 12:07:41 tklaptop NetworkManager: nm_ip4_config_add_nameserver: assertion `nameserver != s' failed
since ubuntu's decided that firefox needs to have their strange and weird theme for the buttons... what's the easiest way to remove this new way that it decides that the button configuration for when you want to close it and other things? I cannot seem to find this file, and i've already tried to delete my .mozilla file and i've installed swiftfox and it's using it. So where in the world did the Ubuntu UI people put this thing at?
