Ubuntu :: Location Bar Stops Working After Opening External Link In Firefox 3.6

Feb 6, 2010

I installed firefox 3.6 from the firefox-stable ppa repository and I noticed that the location bar autocomplete stops working after opening an external link (e.g. clicking a link in evolution or empathy). The problem still occurs when starting firefox in safemode, so it doesn't appear to be related to a misbehaving extension. The problem is only fixed with a browser restart or when I open and then close 'show all history'.

Ubuntu Networking :: Stops Working In 10.10 And Firefox Randomly Stops Working?

Nov 13, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat 64-bit on my desktop with a wired internet connection (with no firewall). For the past 2 days, I have observed that1. Firefox randomly throws up errors like "Problem loading page" whenever I click on a hyperlink. When I click on Reload, the page loads up just fine. This has been happening a lot recently..and I do not remember updating anything consciously. By the way, ipv6 is disabled in Firefox.2. The network stops working all of a sudden (usually indicated by the Firefox error). The Autho Eth0 indication is active, but I am unable to connect to any external machine.

3. Needless to say, this error is manifesting itself in apt-get as well. I get "something wicked happened" errors all the time, and am unable to download or install anything.That this is not a problem with the ISP is obvious because I also have Windows (from which I'm typing this, ironically), which is able to access the internet.Is this a bug in Ubuntu 10.10?

Ubuntu :: OpenMotif : Create Network Location Link As Local Filesystem Location?

Apr 26, 2011

I'm working with a program that uses Open Motif to create all of the widgets, including the Open File dialog box (obviously). However, Open Motif being kinda old-timey, 80's vintage, and for the most part now an abandoned project, it is quite clunky. So, actually what I need to do is to open some files located on my work server. I have already successfully connected to the relevant server directories with Samba, and with programs built with GTK+ (such as GIMP) I can open files across the network because I have created a bookmark in Nautilus, and those bookmarks appear in the Open File dialog box created by GTK+. Now, Open Motif is different: it doesn't see network locations, orNautilus shortcuts. When I type "smb://serveripyadayada" in the search folder, it really doesn't like it and complains. So, what do I do? Can I get somehow Open Motif to open a network location? Or can I do a run-around and place a shortcut in the file system that points to the network location?

Ubuntu :: Compiz Stops Working When Plugging In External Screen?

Jan 6, 2011

buntu user but this time I'm planning to remain so I would like to solve this little problem, which is the following:I have a MSI Wind U100 running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS... everything works fine, both Compiz and Emerald, but when I plug in an external screen (Samsung SyncMaster 2232BW) Compiz simply gets disabled, if I try to re-enable it a pop-up shows up saying "Searching for video driver..." (or something similar) and it reverts "None" againWhen I unplug the external screen and try to re-enable Compiz it runs fine like it should, I've read elsewhere to run "compiz --replace" but it does nothingI thought something like:Plugging in an external screen requires Ubuntu to use a different display driver which doesn't support Compiz

Ubuntu :: Firefox Address-bar Autocomplete Stops Working After Some Time

Jan 6, 2010

Since I updated to Karmic, I noticed a very annoying problem that forces me to restart Firefox every 20 minutes or so: When the cursor is located inside the address bar (CRTL+L), I always type one or two characters, a drop down menu appears with most visited links that contain these characters, I press <down-arrow>, <Enter> and go to one of my usual links. I use this all the time, which allows me to go to me usual links in a second or two. The problem is that this feature stops working after browsing for some time: no drop-down menu appears and pressing the down-arrow does nothing.

The only other problem that happens in coincidence is that you have to click 2 or 3 times on the 'arrow-down' button on the right side of the address bar before you get a drop-down menu with the most visited links (this normally happens on the first click). The problem appears at random moments (typically after some 10 to 20 minutes of browsing, but sometimes earlier) and disappears when I restart FF. I tried clearing the history, but that does not change anything. Does anyone else see this problem and knows how to fix it?

My setup:
Toshiba notebook, 32 bit
up to date Karmic

FF 3.5.6, with some add-ons: adblock plus, bugmenot, all-in-one gestures, xmarks and some dictionaries, all working without any problems.

Fedora :: LVM For BAPCKUPPC - Create A Link To The New Location And What To Mount

Aug 26, 2011

I have read that it is best to have a volume LVM set up to contain the BackupPC data that it generates when backing a machine(s) up. By default BackupPC stores the back up data in /var/lib/BackupPC and there is information on how to create a link to the new location and what to mount on the new dedicated LVM What I do not know is how to create a new LVM for the BackupPC files/data on the machine I have. Currently I have a machine running fedora 15 64 bit. It has BackupPC installed via yum but I have not run it as yet. I believe that I have the necessary dependencies installed The machine has two hard drives, one a 80 GB and the other a 500 GB. Currently Gparted is showing;

/dev/sdb1 ext4 /Boot 500MiB
/dev/sdb2 Lvm2 74.04 GiB (in properties it says it is not mounted)
/dev/sdb1 Lvm2 465.76 GiB (in properties it says it is not mounted)

When the machine was loaded with Fedora it was set up as 1 partition and was just a standard out of the box Fedora install accepting the defaults. how do i go about setting up a LVM that I can expand later if necessary to hold the BackupPC data? I saw in one post some where that person call the group Main. how to" or provide a set by set guide as to how to achieve this. Or provide advise o the best way to set the machine up. I do not intend to run anything else on the machine. It is there to back up a server (Fedora 14), A general use machine machine (Fedora 15) and a windows machine (XP).

Software :: Create A Symbolic Link That Points To An Ftp Location?

Jul 1, 2011

I have a large collection of files on a computer (tallgrass) and tallgrass is running an ftp server, which I have the username and password to. There is about 600 GB of files on tallgrass that I need access to, but I don't have a big enough hard drive. I need these data files to run a cpu-intensive calculation, and my CPU is significantly better than tallgrass' cpu, which is why I want to do it on my computer. (Tallgrass also doesn't have enough RAM.) What I would like to do is create a "symbolic link" on my hard drive that will point to the directory containing the data on tallgrass. Read-only is perfectly OK. This way I could read from mylink/data0001.dat and it would read from the file data0001.dat over ftp from tallgrass. I shouldn't have any speed issues because tallgrass is on my 1 Gbps LAN. Is there a way I can do this?

Software :: Editing SARG To Link It To Custom Location?

Jan 12, 2011

I am using SARG for squid report analysis. And it is working fine. But I want to know if there is some custom configuration possible to link the SARG image at the top of the page to my custom location instead of its default homepage on sourceforge? For the ease of understanding, I am attaching the page screenshot here. The SARG image I am talking about is the one on the top in blue colour. It is linked to [URL] and I want it to link it to my sarg homepage.

Networking :: Iwl4965 Stops Talking Without Disconnect From D-Link Router

May 12, 2010

I have laptops with intel 4965/AGN wireless hardware and ubuntu jaunty. My wireless access point, router, gateway is a D-Link DIR-655. The D-Link is directly connected to my cable modem. The connection does not drop, but They suddenly quit talking with each other. After a brief time lapse, they start talking again without intervention on my part. When I say "stop talking" this is behavior where a browser will return "page or server not found" errors or "DNS timeout". Has anyone seen this sort of network behavior and have some idea about corrective actions?

My attempts to get some help from D-Link have not been successful. Since there are not hundreds of folks reporting troubles, they don't [want to?] understand one poor souls problems.I've tried to ask about this several times and several places.

Software :: Chromium Performance - Opening Link In Background Tab Stall Browser

Feb 12, 2011

I tried the Googles praised Chromium browser and while it seems to render pages fast enough and has a really nice interface, I experienced an annoying responsiveness problem. Opening a link in a background tab seems to stall the browser almost completely until the page has been loaded and rendered. For example scrolling the page that I'm currently viewing becomes almost impossible. The same actually applies to the current tab too, of course. If the page in the tab hasn't been loaded completely, scrolling is really really clumsy. I tried disabling the installed extensions and also tried experimenting with some command line options, but no help there.

Ubuntu :: Opening Files From External Storage Devices From Within Applications?

Running various applications, including Open Office, I need to open files from my external hard drive, from within said application itself. But the file menus for all my applications list only the files of my primary hard drive, and I can't look at other drives. Surely there must be some way to do this.

Ubuntu :: Opening Firefox In New Window From Terminal

Feb 15, 2010

I like to alias my firefox commands so I can open up mutiple pages at once. This works great. firefox [URL]

But if I have firefox already up and running it will open as tabs of the firefox I already have running. How can I open the multiple pages in a new window in this case?

- Using -no-remote could work, but I would have to make a whole different firefox profile for each set of pages, not really a solution. - Also tried setting it to a particular display and it opened as a tab again. ie. firefox [URL] -display=":0.0"

Ubuntu :: Thunderbird Not Opening Links In Firefox?

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 :: Saving/opening Files From Firefox?

Jun 2, 2010

I've been getting annoyed with the way that Firefox opens files for me. I used to have it so that they would come up with a window that asked whether I wished to save files onto the hard drive or simply open them. When choosing to Save, they would go to my Desktop. Because I mainly save files from my Uni website, they are generally .pdf files. N for some reason, they open in the Firefox window, so then I have to go to File, Save, then choose where I want to save it. It would be more efficient if it worked the way it did originally. How can I get the settings back to the way they were? I am running Ubuntu 9.04 and Firefox 3.0.19. Because I use a shared computer, I'm not sure whether the version of Firefox has been changed.

Ubuntu :: Simultaneous Opening Of Firefox Windows ?

Aug 14, 2010

I am using the latest version of ubuntu(10.04 LTS) Desktop edition 32Bit. My problem is, after I open the firefox browser for first time after booting, a chain of new firefox windows start opening one after the another. In a matter of few minutes, there are like 15-20 instances of the browser opened.

I reinstalled the OS, but it is happening again and again. Is there some flaw in OS, something related to OS not compatible with my computer or some problem with the keyboard where some key(combination) is in a "press" mode (however, I dont see that happening on Laptop, the keyboard looks fine, plus Windows XP is working just fine).

This problem is forcing me to spend a larger time on Windows (which is bit cringy, after you get used to Ubuntu!).

Specs: 1Gb Ram, Centrino Duo, 1.88 GHz

Ubuntu :: Firefox Not Opening Homepage On Start?

May 18, 2011

I started using 11.04 awhile ago, and switched from Unity to Classic because I didn't like switching from the mouse to the keyboard that frequently to open applications. I noticed that Firefox had stopped using the setting of opening my homepage when I started Firefox and have been trying to figure out why. It turns out yesterday I think I figured it out. There is an add-on for Unity Menus installed, once I disabled that the behavior returned to normal. Hopefully, someone else here will find that useful.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Menu Bar And Location Bar Dropdown Is Unresponsive?

Nov 11, 2010

I have been having issues with the Firefox browser for the past few months. Firefox version: 3.6.11 Ubuntu x86_64 OS: Ubuntu 10.04 x86_64
Add ons: Flash block, Ad Block+, image block Occasionally on booting up and starting Firefox, the top menu bar, the location bar drop down do not work. Clicking them has no effect. Though I can enter a URL in the location bar, the drop down that gives recently browsed sites is unavailable. Using the keyboard shortcuts for these doesn't work too. So essentially all my browsing history, bookmarks, saved passwords are not accessible.

Restarting the browser/system doesn't . Deleting the whole profile folder restores the functionality, though it takes me back to a blank slate as far as my personalisation and browsing history is concerned and everything needs to be rebuilt. Restoring the profile folder causes the issue to reappear. So it appears to have something to do with the profile stored. Would like to look if any one has has similar issues but can't get a hang of how to best describe this or how others would have described it. I am sure you understand how bad it feels when all the history, bookmarks, passwords etc are in a way lost when this happens. Also how and where to post this or search if already similar bug is posted with Ubuntu and Firefox.

P.S: Is there a way to separate the personal info like history, passwords and bookmarks from the profile somehow?

Ubuntu :: Firefox - Mouse Randomly Stops Clicking?

Jan 6, 2011

some windows fail to react to my mouse clicks (left and right). This has been starting to happen more and more often. However, one window usually stays working normally, while all others fail. Usually, it's the gnome-panel, but one time, this happened to Firefox. During this, I discovered that clicking a window above firefox, would go through the window, and Firefox would recieve it instead, as if the window wasn't there. Even stranger, firefox was not the active window, and all keyboard and mouse commands were received perfectly, however, the window titlebar wouldn't darken as usual. I can still move the mouse around, but when I keep it still for a minute, I see "View your Appointments and Tasks", pop-up, but it sticks to the screen afterward. A reboot fixes this problem, but only for a while. his also occurs when booting from the live Ubuntu 10.10 i386 Desktop Edition CD. I'm using a Logitech Mouse, but I don't believe this has to do with hardware, since this doesn't happen on Windows.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Crashes When Opening Music Website

Oct 19, 2010

I have a strange problem with my browser(s), even Epiphany....when I go to my music site [URL] then log in, go to my page and click on link to play a song the browser Crashes. It never did this before and I dont know what I could have done to cause this. It only does this on this website. Could it be that they use a Quicktime plugin to play the music? I don't know cause I used to be able to play music on there before. It doesnt do this on my Reverbnation site page, just Icompositions. If I click on the icon to restart browser a box comes up saying "we're sorry"...your browser crashed for no apparent reason.....and offers a choice to either reload the page (that repeatedly crashes) or start new session. It isn't a big deal but this never used to happen before. Could it be some bad code on that website?

When I click that item I will be moved to the workspace 7. I find this very confusing.I would prefer the behaviour to be, if there isn't a Firefox in the current workspace to start one and use that rather than reuse one in a different one.
