Applications :: Update From Firefox 3.0 To Firefox 3.5 Through Yum / Remove Previous Installation And Use Solely One Package?

Nov 16, 2009

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.

Ubuntu Installation :: Revert To Previous Firefox Version?

Apr 15, 2010

Since m computer updated FF to 3.6.x FF runs really slowly if a page with java/js or flash opens. It gets so slow I can hardly use it at all. This is a known problem that many people are complaining about, as seen here:

Ubuntu :: Can't Remove Firefox 3.6 (Namoroka) And Reinstall Firefox 2

Feb 25, 2011

Running Ubuntu 8.04

Thought I'd be clever and upgrade Firefox to v. 3 using instructions at


Ended up with "Namoroka" which seems to be Firefox 3.6, and it's a prerelease version.

Flash works under my admin id but not under normal user id. Reinstalling Flash didn't help. Want to revert to Firefox 2 that came with Ubuntu 8.04 so Flash will work again.

Can't uninstall "Namoroka" - uninstalled Firefox-3 but it's still hanging in there!

Can't reinstall Firefox 2

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Update Firefox

May 4, 2010

I've been having problems with the Update Manager ever since it tried to install an update for firefox a few days ago. I'm on Hardy, and I tried to completely remove the firefox package using Synaptic, and re-installing it, and I always get the same error. Maybe it might have something to do with ubuntuzilla? I know I used that a while back to install Firefox 3.5/3.6, since the only one I was getting from the package manager was 3.0. Anyway, here is the error:

E: /var/cache/apt/archives/firefox_3.6.3+nobinonly-0ubuntu1~mfs~hardy2_i386.deb: trying to overwrite `/usr/bin/firefox', which is also in package firefox-mozilla-build

I can't make heads or tails of this

Ubuntu Installation :: Firefox Does Not Open After 3.6.6 Update

Jun 30, 2010

This morning my Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy box was all Hardy. The Update Manager told me to install some updates, which included a Firefox 3.6.6 update. That update failed to install, and now I everytime I click on the panel launcher or go to "Applications," then "Internet" and then "Firefox" I get the following error: Could not launch menu item Failed to execute child process "firefox" (No such file or directory)

Note: When running Firefox from Terminal:

jonathan@ubuntu-desktop:~$ firefox
The program 'firefox' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:
sudo apt-get install firefox-3.0
bash: firefox: command not found

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Won's Shutdown After Firefox Update?

Sep 1, 2011

I've had this happen three times and only since a firefox update yesterday. When I try to shutdown using the shutdown icon on my desktop, it goes to the splash screen and there it sits.

When I shutdown via terminal, it closes down just fine.

Has anyone else experienced this or have any other suggestions? I will undo that update tomorrow being that i need a break from the computer screen.

Ubuntu Installation :: Update Manager Downgraded From Firefox To Namoroka

Jul 31, 2010

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 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.

Ubuntu Installation :: FireFox Refuses To Recognize Flash Update

Aug 15, 2010

Firefox refuses to recognize the upgrade--in existing user accounts only! I created a new account & Firefox picked the upgrade right up. I'm ready to reinstall Firefox or start with all new user accounts--but either option seems to be extreme overkill.

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
Firefox 3.6.8
Adobe Flash Player 10.1 r82 (old accounts are stuck at 9.x)

Ubuntu Installation :: Recent Update Broke Firefox / Reinstall It?

Apr 8, 2011

RE: Ubuntu Desktop 10.10 64bit Updates from 2-3 days ago.

Since then, Firefox starts and runs fine the first time. Close it down and later try to restart, error says that Firefox is already using that profile and will need to quit it before proceeding.

System Monitor then shows that firefox and firefox-bin are still loaded (although nothing in the gnome app tray at bottom of screen). Jill those 2 processes and Firefox loads normally.

Should I wait this out and see if later updates cure this? Reinstall Firefox? Submit a report to launchpad?

Ubuntu Installation :: Firefox 3.6 'Namoroka' Stopped Working After Recent Update

Feb 25, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Installation :: Firefox Wants To Download Php Files After Update To Lucid Server

May 7, 2010

I updated from karmic to lucid server edition and now firefox wants to download some php files. index.php which is in the same directory is apparently correctly parsed.

Google chrome tells me that the site may be temporarily down and Opera informs me that the connection has been closed by the remote server.

Under karmic I had a standard lamp server installed and everything worked fine.

This is the first time I post in a forum and I hope this is fine here.

I just moved the scripts from the server to a local machine which I updated a couple of weeks ago to lucid.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Auto Update Keeps Failing - Original Installation Location

Jul 29, 2011

Firefox auto update keeps failing so...I need help locating the original installation location.

I tried downloading the update and using archive manager to open rather than save, but still it wanted to save. Now I can't find the location it selected.

I want to locate the downloaded saved and delete the new files, to conserve space.

And I need to learn how to force an Automatic update.

I found a folder named firefox and another firefox 3.0 System will not let me delete / move to trash.

I want to update to latest version. Don't want to remove the original and lose all my bookmarks

Applications :: Firefox Grays Out At 100% CPU?

Sep 6, 2010

Is anyone else having problems with Firefox Ver 3.6.8? Lately for no particular reason it just stops, goes all gray and when I look at the process Firefox-bin is running at 100% or more. Occasionally it only lasts a few seconds but often and can even bring the whole machine down requiring a reset to recover. Sometimes it opens, starts loading Gmail and locks up so it's not a particular site causing the problem. I tried the "report a problem" but it was so frustratingly slow that I gave up. I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 kernel 2.6.32-24 GNOME 2.30.2 on a Core2 with 2G RAM.This is only a recent occurrence but it has forced me to use Chrome till I can fix it.
