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 One :: Keyring Password Prompt Upon Starting Firefox?

Jul 12, 2010

A while ago, I removed the Ubuntu One entry from my Startup Applications because it was annoying having to activate the keyring every time I booted up/logged on. Now, I am prompted for a password once I start Firefox (mind that it's only the first time I run Firefox after boot/login). I'm assuming it's Ubuntu One because of the sequence of events, but feel free to correct me if you think otherwise. How can I stop this?

Running standard Ubuntu 10.04.

Ubuntu :: How To Download And Integrate JRE With Firefox

Dec 26, 2010

OS: Ubuntu 7.04 (before you tell me to upgrade to a newer release, my computer does not support any later release- If I cannot learn on 7.04, I cannot learn the same on a newer release)Computer: P3 800mz, ram 512mb My firefox browser upgraded itself (of course I did agree when I was told by it that I should upgrade).The problem is that I have to install JRE as there are no graphics available. It has to be a manual install.I downloaded JRE6u23 (that is what it says when mouse hovers over it) and proceeded to fix or integrate it with firefox or the os (whichever way it can be integrated) As instructed by the jre site, I gave the command 'chmod'; the result is below:

yashpal@yashpal-desktop:~$ sudo su
root@yashpal-desktop:/home/yashpal# chmod a+x jre-6u23-linuxi586.bin
chmod: cannot access `jre-6u23-linuxi586.bin': No such file or directory

Ubuntu :: Get A Video Download Plugin For Firefox?

Sep 1, 2011

I'm trying to get a video download plugin for Firefox (Ant Video) to write into a vfat partition where there's more space. I keep getting the message "You can not read or write files in this folder."

Initially, the permissions for the folder were weird. I followed the instructions here: [URL]

And edited /etc/fstab to this:

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid -o value -s UUID' to print the universally unique identifier
# for a device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name
# devices that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).

Fedora :: Copy Files With Prompt For Similar File Names?

Nov 17, 2009

has anyone used some software tool for copying a file from one location to another (I mean local files - for example from one folder to another), which prompts if you already have this file, or a similar one...I'm going to use it for my file archive ... mostly for my MP3For example, I might have the folder /home/user/MP3/Heavy Metal/Old/Downloaded/Metallicabut have forgotten that I already have Metallica in this folder and now I want to copy my new music collection to my archive folder which contains for example this folder:MP3/Rock/MetAllicA-Full-DiscographyI need copy files software which will tell me:"You already have folder with similar name to 'MetAllicA-Full-Discography' called 'Metallica', do you want to skip this folder, or copy it to location 'MP3/Heavy Metal/Old/Downloaded/'?"This way I will reduce the file redundancy in my file archive, or at least will keep similar items close to each other ..

Ubuntu :: Unable To Download Firefox Add-Ons On 10.0.4 Netbook Edition

Jul 9, 2010

I have just done a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.0.4 Netbook Edition on my Asus Eee PC 1000H, which was originally running Windows XP. Right after the installation I used the Update Manager to download/install updates. It works fine so far and I think I am beginning to like it.

I just could not get my head around one issue with the Firefox 3.6.6. For some strange reasons I just could not download and install Firefox add-ons or themes. I would click on the button "Add to Firefox". The download window with the progress bar would appear. The progress bar would get stuck at 0% with the message "waiting". After 30 secs or so, this error message would appear:

Firefox could not install the file at [url]

Because: Download error-228

Ubuntu :: A Timed Download Manager For Chromium Or Firefox ?

Dec 22, 2010

Does anyone know of any download manager that allows you to time your downloads to start off at certain times / hours et cetera? I currently use DownThemAll! as an extension in my Firefox, but I don't think that has such a capability. I would prefer a browser extension, but if there's an application that would do I'd be thankful if you could name it.

I need this so that I time my downloads at certain hours and have them run automatically, due to the fact that my ISP allows some uncharged hours at night which I basically never made use of (but now I have to, as my free data download limit is close to being used up).

General :: Read A Text File And Ftp Files Using Bash W/out Leaving The Ftp Prompt

I have a script almost working except for 1 thing. What I'm trying to do is read a file that has the files that need to be FTP'd using a bash script. I have everything working except the reading of the file. It works outside of the ftp script I've wrote but once I put it in the FTP script it doesn't.

Here's the Script:

I've been playing w/ the exclamation points to see if that could be the problem, but so far no luck.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Firefox To Stream - Not Download ?

On opensuse11.2 id do not have any plugin to handle streaming like quicktime, windows media etc.

It streams fine.

I've tried adding variation this to mimetypes.rdf:


But it always start downloading.

I can alter the NC:alwaysAsk parameter so I see it is being used.

All I want is a one click streamer, maybe I must use the mplayer plugin?. I just find it strange I cant just pipe the data direcly to vlc.

General :: Cannot Access Internet And Cannot Download Firefox 3.6.12 ?

Dec 15, 2010

I have an acer aspire one notebook (I gather firefox 2 is interwoven on the system?). Anyway, keep pressing firefox icon and it churns over put nothing happens. I found the following advice on another site: (Sorry this is so long, but I wanted to give you as much info for you to help me)

Press Alt+F2 to show the Run program window. Check Run in terminal, leave the input field blank, and click Run to open a terminal. If you're not familiar with the Linux command line just follow the instructions step by step. The easiest way is to simply paste the commands into the terminal with Ctrl+Shift+V. Most of them will only give feedback if an error occurs.

The first command uses wget to download Firefox 3.6 from an official mirror. You can edit the lang variable at the end, in this case en-US, if you'd like another language. All available languages are listed here, just hover over the download link to get the language code from the status bar.

wget -N [url]

The next step extracts the just downloaded file and modifies a link to point to it. In a few cases a connection refused error message may be triggered by sudo, which is not an error but a bug in sudo and can be safely ignored.

The next step links all plug-ins (not to be confused with extensions) to it.

Launch the profile manager using the command below. Create a new profile, name it anything you like and select it. If you want to keep your bookmarks export them via the bookmark manager first. You can then delete the old default profile.

firefox -profilemanager -no-remote

As a bonus you can also change the icon to the official Firefox icon.

Finally reboot the AA1 to make the desktop aware of the new icon and browser location.

However when I try the above I get the following responses at each point:

I do now have a new icon on the desktop! but still no internet.

Ubuntu Networking :: Bizarre Wired Network - Download Updates And Firefox

Jun 3, 2010

I have a dual-boot Compaq CQ60-420US laptop. It can connect wirelessly in Vista without a problem. I have not yet figured out how to connect it wirelessly in Ubuntu (10.04, Lucid), but that's not the problem here. The problem here is on the wired side. Whether I boot in Vista or Ubuntu, I cannot get it to go online. Ubuntu says that the Auto eth2 connection is established; I am able to disconnect and reconnect it normally; but I can't download updates and Firefox can't connect to CNN.com. Likewise, in Vista, diagnostics find no problem; everything seems to be fine; but no connection.

I thought the problem might be the laptop's ethernet port, so I bought a Trendnet TU2-ET100 USB-to-Ethernet adapter. It comes highly recommended; it seems to have installed successfully in Vista; it appears properly in Vista's Network Connections; its lights are blinking appropriately; and Ubuntu tells me that my Auto eth2 connection is established when I connect through that adapter. And yet still no connection to CNN.com and no downloads of updates in either OS.

I wondered if some other circuitry might be at issue, so I sent the laptop back to HP. They claim to have replaced the mobo. The symptoms remain unchanged before and after. I went through an extensive tech support call with HP. The last thing their technician could advise was to power cycle the laptop and router. The ethernet connection itself is good. I can unplug the cable from the laptop's ethernet port or the Trendnet unit, plug it into the desktop computer on which I am typing this note, and I'm connected with no problem.

I thought, well, maybe I have to have the laptop's wireless button on, even when I want to connect via wire, but that hasn't made a difference. I tried installing Windows drivers from the Trendnet website instead of from the CD; no joy. I suspect you will be as stumped as I am. I have gone through a lot of other people's comments. At this point, I am just interested in general possibilities. What, in theory, could be causing this?

OpenSUSE Network :: 11.3 Branded Firefox Cannot Download Tweetdeck

Dec 18, 2010

This gets better and better. First I find out the branded version of Firefox can't do a right click "save page as" (although it can with CTRL-S), now I discover it can't download TweetDeck from that program's Web site. Click on the button to download TweetDeck, it says "Installing TweetDeck" but nothing happens.

I'm going to dropkick the branded Firefox to the curb and install the regular Mozilla version. It's more up to date anyway. I ran the Mozilla version for some time on 11.0 until I installed 11.3 the other day, so I'll live without "integration" that doesn't work worth a ****.
