Ubuntu :: 10.04 - Picture Uploading Using Firefox / Thunderbird

Jul 11, 2010

I have been using Ubuntu 10.04 for a couple months now and am currently using it with Firefox 3.6.3 and Thunderbird 3.0.4. I was wondering if it was possible to view thumbnails when trying to upload a picture (e.g. to eBay) or adding a picture as an attachment to an email rather than just having a list view and having to click on each picture to get a preview. I have quite a lot of pictures and it becomes a bit time consuming trying to find the right one to upload.

Software :: Thunderbird Uploading Attachments

Apr 13, 2011

I have Internet access with Verizon Wireless and have a limit of 5 gigs per month but Mozilla Thunderbird 3.1.8 is wasting my data whenever I send large attachments. For example, when I send an attachment to somebody, Thunderbird will upload it okay but when it is finished uploading it, the message in the window then says "copying to the Sent folder" but it does not simply "copy" it, instead, it uploads the attachment all over again to the Sent folder. So the attachment was uploaded twice, once to the recipient and once to my sent folder.I am running Linux Mint 9 Isadora.Is there a way to stop this behavior?

Ubuntu :: Firefox Crash Upon Uploading Photo?

Apr 9, 2010

I'm unsure as to whether this is an Ubuntu problem or a Firefox problem, but here's what's going on. Whenever I attempt to upload a photo on a website (such as Facebook or Funnyjunk.com), Firefox crashes. The microsecond I click "upload", it's gone.When I restart Firefox, I have the option of restoring my previous session, as normally happens after a FF crash.Is this a documented bug? I don't recall it ever happening on Windows, and I can't seem to find anything about it.

Ubuntu :: Uploading Files Completely Freezes FIrefox

Jun 6, 2010

Firefox grays out and doesn't unfreeze until the entire upload is complete.I can't do anything else on the internet while this is happening.This didn't bother me until now, because I need to upload some pretty high quality pictures to Flickr, and it takes about fifteen or twenty minutes to do so.I'd like if the pictures could simply upload in the background while I do other stuff, instead of completely freezing my internet usage in the process.I don't have a problem downloading files quietly in the background not even large files so why can't I upload files without freezing everything up? Is this normal, or is there a fix for this?

Fedora :: Poor Picture Quality In Firefox And Other Browsers?

Jun 18, 2010

After taking a first look onto internet under Fedora linux (using Firefox web browser) I've saw that every single image is displayer much much worse than in same Firefox under Windows. Especially when scaling, it became pixelized, but even without scaling it is smoothen very much. I've checked Konqueror but quality is bad too and the same as in Firefox. What could be the reason and how could I fix it?

BTW, everything in linux GUI looks a little worse, including font, etc, looks smooth. Images under IrfanView too, but not as bad as in browsers. Proprietary Nvidia driver from RPMfusion is installed and 3D works. But running Fedora under VirtualBox in Windows produce same bad quality as in native Fedora.

Fedora :: Se The Browse Buttons And/or Try And Change To Another Picture, Firefox Crashes

Jan 24, 2010

I have two kinda weird problems that have been preventing me from wasting my time!

1. I can go to a flickr page and see the first picture fine. When I use the browse buttons and/or try and change to another picture, firefox crashes.

2. When viewing pictures in facebook (the only reason I use it is to share pictures with my far-off family who doesn't get to see my kids often) the pictures are very badly pixelated.

I'm using an Acer Aspire laptop (Intel 915 graphics, celeron processor, 1.5GB ram) with a completely up to date Fedora 12 installation. The weird part is, my wife's netbook, (1GB ram, Intel 945 graphics) with Fedora 12, displays everything fine. I'm cometely stumped how one machine is having such issues while another isn't. This problem existed in F10 when I used up until the F12 release so I'm presuming it is a graphics card problem (???) since the software and OS has changed.Does anyone know what might be going on or how I can check?

Ubuntu :: Can't Run Firefox - Thunderbird Without Sudo / Resolve This?

Jan 19, 2010

I just migrated into Ubuntu 9.10 from Windows and moved my mail profiles and also my bookmarks to Thunderbird and Firefox.

I can't see the Mail profiles and messages unless I run "sudo thunderbird" and I can't save or edit bookmarks in Firefox unless I run "sudo firefox".

Probably it's best if I don't run Firefox or Thunderbird as root, eh?

I've tried changing the file permissions for bookmarks.html, but no luck. And haven't even tried to tackle the Thunderbird issue yet.

Ubuntu :: Thunderbird Not Opening Links In Firefox?

Mar 30, 2010

I have been having trouble getting Thunderbird to open links within my emails. When a link is clicked there is no response at all. I am running firefox version 3.6.2 and Thunderbird 3.0.3. After surfing the interweb and the forums I have tried setting the default browser through Firefox itself and through the preferred applications GUI in Ubuntu with no luck. I have gone into the about:config for Thunderbird and added the following lines:

network.protocol-handler.app.http /usr/bin/firefox
network.protocol-handler.app.https /usr/bin/firefox

Ubuntu :: 10.04 - Getting Firefox / Thunderbird Error Messages

Nov 10, 2010

Problem-cannot mount 2 other samba computers on my ubuntu 10.04 via 'sudo mountall'. Additionally I now get Firefox/Thunderbird error messages as listed below. Had no problems with ubuntu UNTIL I attempted install of VirtualBox running WinXP client in my Ubuntu host. VirtualBox seemed to install ok but upon startup of WinXP client all I got was a black screen. To close it I had to do "Power Off" which VBox manual says is like a hard power off and is to be avoided. So I guess it's like I crashed XP within Ubuntu.

Now - ubuntu boots ok except will not auto mount other samba connected computers. Manually running 'sudo mountall' in terminal gives --
p { margin-bottom: 0.02in; page-break-before: auto; }p.cjk { font-size: 10pt; } swapon: /dev/disk/by-uuid/24c4c591-47ec-44f1-ac52-c0e2f5850c18: swapon failed: Device or resource busy
mountall: swapon /dev/disk/by-uuid/24c4c591-47ec-44f1-ac52-c0e2f5850c18 [2235] terminated with status 255
mountall: Problem activating swap: /dev/disk/by-uuid/24c4c591-47ec-44f1-ac52-c0e2f5850c18
retrying with upper case share name
mount error(6): No such device or address
Refer to the mount.cifs( manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)
mountall: mount /media/samba_share [2239] terminated with status 32

Additionally I now get these warning messages when Firefox and Thunderbird start. (They do start and seem to work fine.)--
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: Server ping error: IDLmg.org/CORBA/COMM_FAILURE:1.0)
p { margin-bottom: 0.02in; page-break-before: auto; }p.cjk { font-size: 10pt; } What I've tried-

1) fstab UUID matches error UUID above and matches UUID from blkid command:
fstab =#Entry for /dev/sdc2 :
UUID=24c4c591-47ec-44f1-ac52-c0e2f5850c18 none swap sw 0 0
p { margin-bottom: 0.02in; page-break-before: auto; }p.cjk { font-size: 10pt; }
blkid = /dev/sdc2: UUID="24c4c591-47ec-44f1-ac52-c0e2f5850c18" TYPE="swap"

2) Reinstalled mountall from synaptic pkg manager; did not try to remove mountall and reinstall. To remove, removes LOTS of other packages from system - not brave enough to do that (yet).

3) Ran fsck on swap partition as below. Swap not found. (that confuses me.)p { margin-bottom: 0.02in; page-break-before: auto; }p.cjk { font-size: 10pt; } john@johndesk:~$ fsck /dev/sdc2
fsck from util-linux-ng 2.17.2
fsck: fsck.swap: not found
fsck: Error 2 while executing fsck.swap for /dev/sdc2
p { margin-bottom: 0.02in; page-break-before: auto; }p.cjk { font-size: 10pt; } 4) deleted all the files in ~/.dbus/session-bus. Ubuntu just rebuilds the same file back.

Ubuntu :: Move Firefox And Thunderbird Settings To Another Disk?

Feb 4, 2010

It appears that my HDD is failing at the moment, so I'm going to replace it by two new disks (RAID1) over the weekend.
At the same moment I'll stick in another 6GB RAM. Because I'm currently running the 32-bit system, I'll be upgrading to 64-bit (doh).

Now then, is it possible to copy all Firefox and Thunderbird settings (settings, accounts, bookmarks, cookies etc) over to the other disk?
If so, which folder(s) do I have to copy?

Ubuntu :: Thunderbird And Firefox Not Working When Using Profiles On A NFS Share

Oct 25, 2010

Instead of upgrading to 10.10, I decided to install everything from scratch. Since the installation I can't make Firefox and Thunderbird work with the profiles I have always used on an NFS share. Locally Everything seems to work fine, but when I use the profiles on my NFS server I get in trouble. With Thunderbird I can read the email that is already there, but I can't get new one. It seems to hang during the connection. I can also write Drafts, and save them. RSS seems to work too. With Firefox I get the error "the bookmark and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application". When I try to open a url it doesn't work. Both applications start very slowly, but only when I open the profiles on the NFS share. I can happily read and write files on that share, so it can't be an access problem. I have a 64 bit machine, and I am using the Firefox 3.6.11 32 bit that I downloaded separately. Thunderbird is the one coming with the distribution.

Ubuntu :: Migrating Firefox / Thunderbird Profiles From Windows

Apr 28, 2011

I am trying to do as the title states, I am however having problems. I have tried deleting the profile and profile.ini in kubuntu and copying over the windows profile to home/user/.mozilla/firefox for example with firefox, this didn't work. I tried copying it there with the existing profile and changing the path of the ini file, to the windows profile name, this didn't work either. The only thing that I can think is that I am using 64 bit windows and 32 bit kubuntu.I have tried using firefox sync, this didn't work either.

OpenSUSE :: Cannot Launch URL From Thunderbird 3.04b To Firefox

Nov 14, 2009

This is a fresh install of 11.2 KDE-4.3.1.

After reviewing all of the 11.2 Milestone 64-bit DVDs, Milestone 1 - 8 - I was always able to launch Firefox from Thunderbird in search of add-ons or an html link.

It stopped working in RC1, RC2.

I thought this was resolved for openSUSE 11.2. The problem still exists!

Now, thinking the problem was with Thunderbird 3.0.4b. I navigated to Configure Desktop --> Personal Settings --> General --> Default Applications:

Changed Email Client from KMail to Thunderbird

From within KMail I can launch Firefox. However, Thunderbird 3.0.4b does NOT launch Konqueror nor Firefox 3.5.4 !!

In addition the Thunderbird 3.04b Help does NOT work.

Could the setting of Default Applications be broken in KDE-4.3.1 " release 6 " ??

I'm sure I cannot be the only one experiencing this at home???

They crash half of the time when something has to load, such as an attachment or download. Is there anything I can do about this?

Software :: Where To Buy A CD / DVD Of Firefox , Thunderbird For System?

Apr 2, 2010

My internet connection is a dial-up connection. Downloading huge multi-megabyte files is not a reasonable way for me to obtain software. I am interested in the latest versions of Firefox and Thunderbird for my Linux box (CentOS 5.4). I used to be able to order a CD of each program directly from Mozilla, but that option seems to have gone away. Does anyone know of a reliable source of CDs or DVDs of Mozilla software for Linux? The outfit I used to order Linux CDs from seems to have dropped that business.

Ubuntu :: All Applications Crashing - Firefox, Thunderbird, Opera, OpenOffice?

Jul 13, 2010

For a couple of weeks, I have had constant crashes of all my applications on Lucid:Thunderbird 3.1 (updated since crashing started using Ubuntuzilla)Firefox 3.6.6 (updated since crashing started using Ubuntuzilla) - also crashes in safe mode OpenOffice 3.2 Opera 9.63 Most frequently it is Firefox and Thunderbird crashing, because they're the applications I use most. (Also F-Spot has crashed, but F-Spot frequently crashed before all this, so may not be related).

Sometimes applications will run for a few hours and then crash (either suddenly close or freeze, it varies). Other times the application crashes before it even opens, and I just get the Mozilla crash reporter. If an application won't start at all, it will usually start if I restart the computer, but may crash again soon afterwards. There is no obvious pattern to when it crashes - sometimes on starting, sometimes when I click something, sometimes when I'm not even at the computer and I just come back to find it crashed.

My husband (a programmer) has run Memtest on my machine, which found no problems. He is also running lucid on the same hardware apart from the monitors, and has the same versions of OpenOffice, Thunderbird and Firefox except for extensions, but has not any problems. A warning that shows on the terminal if Firefox crashes in safe mode, is:

WARNING: pipe error: Broken pipe: file /builds/slave/linux_build/build/ipc/chromium/src/chrome/common/ipc_channel_posix.cc, line 627
WARNING: pipe error (3): Connection reset by peer: file /builds/slave/linux_build/build/ipc/chromium/src/chrome/common/ipc_channel_posix.cc, line 404

This is strange because I did not, when that warning first appeared, have Chromium installed (although I did have Picasa). My husband installed Chromium on my machine after seeing the warning and Chromium is running okay so far but other applications are still crashing.

Ubuntu :: Firefox, No Sound, Mailto Broken / Thunderbird Related?

Jul 20, 2010

i have recently been having random problems with mostly firefox. the 2 most annoying problems (that work in other browsers) were: no sound on various sites, like videos and amazon mp3 previews. the mailto command would not work.

the fix is 2 part: i installed the standard release of thunderbird 3.1.1 and the firefox mailto problem is fixed. i installed the standard release of firefox 3.6.7 and sound now works fine.

additionally i have removed thunderbird, firefox and related ubuntu brandng from the package manager for the following reasons:above fixes, time and frustration involved in debug.eliminates the chronic application directory rename during updates, /usr/lib/... and softlink change in /usr/bin.allows me to keep up with t'bird and firefox security patches as they are released, i.e. immmediately.
