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.
everytime i try to install the updates from the update manager i get this error message:
E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem. E: _cache->open() failed, i have tried running the sudo dpkg --configure -a in the terminal but when it asks for the password the keyboard stops working so i cant type anything into the terminal. can anyone help me fix this? My other problem was when i try to run the Add/Remove Applications i can't ever install any of the software because it says its "waiting for other tasks" i'm not sure why its doing this either.
I have problem running Firefox 3.6.5pre called Namoroka
In Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 I have installed F/f 3.5 and 3.6,showing in Synaptic and also 3.6.5pre which does not appear in the synaptic list as it was installed direct from Mozilla. If I try to run 3.5 or 3.6 Namoroka still grabs the command.
I would like to revert to the recognised/updated version of 3.6 (already installed)and completely remove all redundant packages. Mozilla only suggests removing the profile but I need that when the recognised version is allowed to run.
I sudo apt-get removed Firefox from my system in favor of Google Chrome. However, Ubuntu still prompts me to upgrade Firefox. How do I stop that? Also, whenever I click on HTML files, Firefox is still the one that loads by default. How can that be if I've sudo apt-get removed it? And Firefox is still in my Applications->Internet menu... So, was my sudo apt-get remove successful?
For some reason (hardware - I am guessing) the LiveCD does not boot on some laptops. The LiveCD worked well on my Dell Inspiron 1525 without any problems but my Fujitsu-Siemens refused to boot up. If you are trying to install or use F12 with the LiveCD ISO image burnt onto a CD on a laptop and fails with the following error:[drm:drm_mode_rmfb] *ERROR* tried to remove a fb that we didn't own Boot has failed, sleeping foreverthis workaround may work for you. Sometimes it will come up with another error about 'Root Device Not Found'
The workaround only works on a bootable USB key for some other reason, created with 'live-usb creator' and not a CD nor a LiveCD image on a USB created on a windows machine. I have tried them all.
I'm on 9.10 x64 gnome.I hate firefox and want to remove it because I use chrome,but when I try to remove it it removes the java plugin.And when I try to install the java plugin alone, it installs firefox. Why are these dependencies of each other? Is there any way that I can remove ff without removing java?
How can I remove Namoroka (3.6.12pre) and reinstall firefox? I already tried the sudo apt-get purge firefox-3.6 but to no avail. Can anybody tell me what the ppa packages just are? Is it correct that they are Ubuntu specific packages for optimizing applications for Ubuntu?
so i want to remove all cookies from my firefox, seems like lots of ways to do this, none of which work?
tried, edit pref privacy show cookies remove all cookies all cookies appear gone but on restart are all back again tried tools view all cookies remove all cookies
same result. anyone any idea how i can do this tried to manually delate cookie file from ~/.mozilla/firefox/somecode.default but that didn't work either, failing that how do i remove firefox and all config files with yum, like --purge option for .deb systems?
I installed an addon on Firefox, which i am not completely sure it is safe. (Name of the addon is Ivacy, you can google it, it's to use a VPN) Anyway, i thought that maybe that addon could install a keylogger or something. So I uninstalled it, and then I thought, what if it infected firefox? (I know i am paranoid) So i uninstalled firefox by using Yast, then reinstalled it, and my previous addons and history were still there. For me it means that uninstalling by Yast does not remove all traces of Firefox. Please do you have a way to remove all traces of Firefox? As i told you previously, I'm new to Linux, do you think that there is a risk for my PC when I install Firefox addons?
i am wanting to use Firefox to connect to my smb shares. However, i keep getting this error message: Firefox doesn't know how to open this address, because the protocol (smb) isn't associated with any program. My client configuration is as follows: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-GB; rv:126.96.36.199pre) Gecko/20100106 Ubuntu/9.10 (karmic) Shiretoko/3.5.8preI tried the instructions below to try and fix the problem with no success: Quote: From [URL]
Linux with Firefox In order to connect to a network share directly from you browser under Linux, you must configure Firefox to handle URL's starting with "smb://". This is done by typing "about:config" in the address line and hitting return. After that you must right-click the list of settings and choose "New -> Boolean" as shown below.
As name you must type: "network.protocol-handler.external.smb" with a value of "true". After that you must do the same thing over again, but this time choose "New -> String", type the name: "network.protocol-handler.app.smb" with a value of the path to the application you wish to use for browsing network shares. If you use KDE, this will typically be "/usr/bin/konqueror".
In linux version of firefox (specifically in my case Debian's rebranded Iceweasel), folders of bookmarks in the personal toolbar show a little down arrow on the right of the name. It serves no real purpouse and just takes up horizontal space, is there a way to remove it?
I've experienced the fairly annoying firefox error where it refuses to start the GUI. If there were no active firefox processes, nothing happened when I started it, but it did "start", meaning that I got the "firefox is already running" when I tried again. I found a fix to this, which was to delete some or all files in the ~/.mozilla/firefox directory. I now have 2 different problems. Number one is that the problem keeps reoccurring and I'd like to know what's causing it. The second problem is that even when I've "fixed" the issue, I still can't run firefox from scripts or click links. I get the "firefox is already running" error instead of a new tab or window.
I am running F11 and I want to mount an FTP, but when I try to connect to an ftp server using Places -> Connect to Server, or the bookmarks I made I get an error that says 'Failed to execute child process "/usr/lib/firefox-3.5/firefox" (No such file or directory)' and sometimes it mounts anyway, but most the time it doesn't, and it never connects to the folder I asked it to, I just have to open the mount and navigate to it. I figure this happened because Firefox upgraded to 3.5.1 and the folder is now /usr/lib/firefox-3.5.1/firefox, but I don't know how to update this so that it looks in the right location.
When I installed Fedora GNOME I could use my printer fine (But I had to change the recommended driver) Now, I switched to KDE and I plug-in my printer, It automaticly adds it, Now I have to delete it and re-add to fix the small bug... Except when I press "Remove Printer" I get "There was an error during the CUPS operation: 'client-error-forbidden'."
I was having issues with wireless connecting to a server, so i kept getting this one issue, and decided to let me friend take a look at the netbook through ssh openssh-server. The same error popped up. From there he wanted me to uninstall java-package... and got the error again. The following is said all throughout the different terminal statements.
I am running on a MSI U130 netbook, and using UBUNTU 10.04 remix netbook.
Any on solving this issue so that i can install stuff without getting this error all the time?
Installed from liveCD last night and everything worked fine. Overnight I downloaded and installed updates and today the Add/Remove Software thing doesn't work. I get an internal system error has occurred...

I got a new HDD like a Storage on my Ubuntu ,it is formated as ext3 and i am able to mount it ,but sometimes while downloading from FTP ,when the session broke Ubuntu crates some ./afternature.mp4 Input/output error ,which i can see on "ls -l" ,and that causes great troubles to me ,because i can not copy or write on that disk another file with the same one which is created like this ,these error are gone only if i format the hdd .
My mounting command is "mount /dev/hdb3 /tmp/hd ext3 rw 0 0" So is that possible to remove these error without formatting the disk . PS:I did a lot of search for that error ,on unix forums also here but i didn`t find a concrete answer ,i found a thread which is for that case but removing with inode is impossible because on ls -l i`m not receiving the inode .
In both of these areas, when I actually go to "Install" the things, whether it be adding or removing programs, or doing the Update Manager, I get the same error as soon as I click "Install," and it fails to install any selected programs/updates.
Here is the following error: E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem. E: _cache->open() failed, please report. I have not been able to find this "sudo dpkg" file to manually run.
