Ubuntu :: Thunderbird Won't Launch Without Safe-Mode

Sep 16, 2010

I have the Lightning and Enigmail extensions added, and Thunderbird won't launch with these extensions unless I first open a terminal and give a "thunderbird --safe-mode", wait for Thunderbird to launch in safe mode, quit Thunderbird, then relaunch Thunderbird normally,

I looked at Thunderbird's man page, and was unable to find a debug mode; does anyone know if Thunderbird has a debug mode?

I am running Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx, Thunderbird 3.1.1, Lightning 1.0b2 and Enigmail 1.1.2.

(Note that, on a different computer, I am running Kubuntu 10.04, same versions of Thunderbird, Lightning, and Enigmail, and have no problems. Also, on a third computer, I am running Linux Mint 9 Isadora, same versions of Thunderbird, Lightning, and Enigmail, and also have no problems.)

Ubuntu :: System Won't Boot, Can't Find Safe Mode, Can't Launch Recovery Mode

Nov 18, 2010

I attempted to install Catalyst 10.11 for my ATI HD 2600XT and the system now only displays lines and a large block of pixels where the mouse would go. CTRL-ALT-F1 kills the system and does not provide a command prompt. This is a single installation, not dual-boot, but there is no Press Esc to access the Grub menu during startup so I cannot choose safe mode. I attempted to get into Recovery mode using the flash drive that I used to install the system and it tells me there is no Recovery kernel (I used the 64-bit Desktop installer, not alternative). Does anyone know an alternative to get into the Grub menu other than ESC during bootup? Alternatively, do I need to download the 64-bit Alternative ISO and create a new boot disk with it so I can access Recovery mode? Is there something else I'm not thinking of?

Ubuntu Installation :: Safe To Update Thunderbird Through Terminal?

Feb 1, 2010

So I have thunderbird and it works great but I wanna check out the lighting add on and need a new addition. I have it set so it should update automatically but alas this didn't happen. I have downloaded the newest version to my hard disk and am wondering if I can just update it from that file? I don't want to try installing it for fear of loosing everything I already have.

Ubuntu Installation :: Safe To Upgrade To Thunderbird 3.1 Yet? (Lucid)

Jul 16, 2010

I notice the repository Thunderbird version is 3.0.5 but 3.1 is already released. I'm on 3.0.4 and it took me forever to find a compatible version of the Lightning extension, which I really need.Now I am afraid to upgrade to anything older than 3.1 because it might break Lightning, and I'm afraid to upgrade to 3.1 because maybe there's a reason it's not in the official repository yet (and because who knows if the latest version of Lightning really is compatible with the latest version of Thunderbird). My question is, is anybody out there currently running Thunderbird 3.1 with the Lightning extension on Kubuntu or Ubuntu 10.04, AMD64? Have you found it to be stable?

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???

Fedora :: F14: GNOME Won't Launch Firefox / Thunderbird

Jun 8, 2011

Noticed this last night, when I try and launch either Firefox or Thunderbird using the GNOME menu or the quick launch icons, it fails. I am able to launch them both from the command line in a terminal. Other applications seem to launch fine, so I'm at a bit of a loss where to begin taking this apart... I do get a task in the task bar that says "Launching Firefox", but then nothing comes up. The same thing happens with Thunderbird. That task just goes away. Another odd thing - following a reboot the launch buttons work once. If I close them, they won't launch again unless I run them from a terminal window.

Ubuntu :: Can't Boot Into Safe Mode?

Dec 21, 2010

First let me say sorry if this is in the wrong thread. I am a bit of a noob when it comes to linux. I was trying to figure out how to get an external monitor as my primary monitor on my laptop when i made a change that cause the desktop environment to keep logging me out. I got it into safe mode and resolved the issue but i have my account set to not ask for a password on login and it keeps booting to safe mode now. I have tried logging out and typing my username to get the option to select the normal desktop but as soon as i enter my username it boots bake in as safe mode. The option to require a password on login is not working in this mode. Anyone know how I can get this corrected?

Ubuntu :: Lost Windows Safe Mode?

Jun 29, 2010

I upgraded my video card today on my dual booting windows 7 ult. x64 machine. I tried to go into safe mode to clean the old drivers out with Driver Sweeper, but when I boot I get a menu asking me which disk I want to boot from (Asus motherboard P5Q <green>) and I have gotten this before and I usuall just hit esc to use default drive and start pressing F8 repeatedly but it just goes to GRUB dual boot menu and there's no safe mode for windows listed. I also tried pressing F5 as that used to be the safe mode command, but it does nothing and goes straight to GRUB.

Ubuntu Installation :: Safe Mode Are Listed Twice ?

Jul 2, 2010

When I first started to install Ubuntu to my system, I got an error that told me Ubuntu was not successfully installed, so I restarted my computer and tried again. That time it works, and I'm thoroughly enjoying the OS. I noticed that when I start up my computer and I have the OS boot list, Ubuntu and Ubuntu safe mode are listed twice. How do I remove the 2nd one, and is it still installed on my other partition even though it said failed?

Ubuntu :: GNOME Only Starts In Safe Mode?

Oct 14, 2010

I did a clean install of 10.10 on my Asus A6R laptop today. Previously i had 10.04 on it.

After installation and the first reboot my GNOME won't start in normal session. If I select Ubuntu Desktop Edition (safe mode) everything works fine, but on the normal Ubuntu Desktop Edition session, GNOME just won't start. I have a mouse cursor that i can move around and a normal background. Also i can hear the usual startup sound.

Ubuntu :: Maverik Starts Only In Safe Mode?

Jan 9, 2011

I am running Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit and I did some Update Manager system updates yesterday evening without paying to much attention at the process. This morning when I started my computer, it froze during boot and my Ubuntu is not working anymore. I managed to start it in "Safe Mode" and checked the kernel version which is 2.6.35-24-generic . In System > About Ubuntu it says that I am using Ubuntu 11.04 - the Natty Narwhal - released in April 2011 and supported until October 2012 even though I am sure I didn't do any dist. upgrade.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can Only Boot In Safe Mode

Jul 10, 2011

After I upgraded to 11.04 I now can only boot in safe mode. When I boot up in regular mode everything on the desktop is showing but I cant open anything. When I try to boot up in the classic mode, which is what I prefer, I just get my wallpaper on my desktop but no icons or anything. I didn't mind the safe mode at first but I now realise I cant install any updates which isn't good. I have 222 updates that need installed.

Ubuntu Installation :: Windows XP Only Boots In Safe Mode

May 12, 2011

I am not a computer genius. My laptop was notifying me of Windows Genuine Advantage, and I guess I am the last person on earth to know what that is. Now I can only boot in safe mode since it requests activation. There is nothing important on the computer and I only want to use it for watching movies at this time. I want to get rid of Windows altogether, and install Ubuntu. I have downloaded a copy of it and its on my removable drive. I do not have a disc drive on the laptop, only USB. How do I do this? I don't think I have a virtual drive anymore, I think I got rid of the program that was on there.

General :: Ubuntu 10.10 Runs Only In Safe Mode Session

Mar 28, 2011

I tried to install Ubuntu in my P3 computer so i can play with it, everything works fine but not after i reboot it. Now i got the user and password window on the desktop and drop-down-list of sessions, language, keyboard, date & Time and Shutdown button at the bottom.

Drop-down-list session:
Recovery Console
Ubuntu Desktop Edition
Ubuntu Desktop Edition (Safe Mode)
User Defined Session

With these 4 options, the third one which is the safe mode is the only option I was able to get through. Others are just desktop without toolbar or anything, right click with folder option are working though. Recovery console is just the CLI window but I don't know anything about Linux commands.

Fedora :: Firefox Kills F13 Even In Safe Mode ?

Aug 13, 2010

On my friend's fedora 13 install, firefox was working, it seems, until the recent kernel update (kernel is now

After the upgrade, opening firefox would crash the system shortly after starting, so firefox was re-installed (once using rpm, once using yum).

After a re-install of firefox (using yum: firefox version is now 3.6.7) and Until a reboot, the repeated error report went something like this:

After checking to see if the flash plugin was still around and then doing a hard re-boot, however, just opening firefox immediately freezes the system.

Konqueror will run (albeit rather lamely)

In that I don't know the schedule for f13 kernel updates, if indeed the new kernel is causing this problem, does f13 save old kernels? How do I get the older kernel to start (with fc9 the option could be set in grub, or I could startx from a terminal but I have not been keeping up and am not sure how to do this.

I see there are many firefox issues lately...
