Ubuntu :: Firefox Will Not Restart From The Panel Or A Terminal?

Feb 20, 2010

After some use, firefox will not restart from the panel or a terminal. Looking in '.mozilla/firefox' I find:


lrwxrwxrwx 1 dave dave 15 2010-02-19 20:55 lock ->

The number at the end changes everytime I remove it. Is this something trying to get in or something trying to get out? Or what? This has been going on for a while.

Ubuntu Installation :: System Automatically Tried To Restart But On The Restart Got The 'terminal' View

Apr 30, 2011

I have just finished the upgrade of the latest version and I'm at the point of my system restating.

My system automatically tried to restart but on the restart I got the 'terminal' view. It stopped when asking for my username (it never normally asks for this before the grub menu) and then password. I didn't get any further than that.

I now have on my screen (still in the terminal view before the grub menu)

"name@name-desktop:...$ "

I'm on my phone now so I don't actually have the symbol for before the dollar sign but your know what it is. The raised S on a 90 degree angle.

Now when I minimize an app (eg browser), I have to press alt-tab and toggle through the open apps until I get to the one I need

Ubuntu Installation :: Panel Transparency Is Lost On Restart?

May 2, 2011

I have had no issue with the panel's transparency in previous Ubuntu versions. This all started w/ Natty. I set up transparency (right click on panel, Nav through Properties > Background, Check "Solid Color," slide bar to my preferred opacity, & click "Close." The panel looks as follows: But when I restart the computer it goes grey:

killall command doesn't work, I have moved the panel, I have created a new one. The "closest" I found were people complaining (back in December) that the theme switched to grey. But I don't think the panel is taking up another theme, it is simply not painting the transparent image.

I didn't like Unity so I disabled it (still installed). I also removed indicator-me and indicator-messenger via synaptic as I have since Lucid Lynx. I removed the black bubble notifications and removed the shutdown/logout/restart confirmation/countdown prompt w/ a couple of code-hacks I found online as I have since Jaunty Jackalope. I also tried to change the opacity though an option inside Compiz's "Opacity, Brightness and Saturation". This also made AWN icons transparent so I undid it. I use the "Glossy P" theme w/ "Snow Apple" icons.

Ubuntu :: After Crash Can't Restart Firefox / Fix This?

Jan 29, 2010

This has happened multiple times. I'd be running firefox and it would crash for whatever reason. I'd try to restart it and it would tell me that it's "already running as another process."

ps and top show no firefox. killall can't kill it. I found a few forum postings saying to delete the .parentlock file in the firefox directory. That allows me to start it, but all my personalizations and settings are gone. I have to each time create a new profile and copy everything over.

Kubuntu 9.04, all up to date, 2.6.28-13, 64-bit.

Ubuntu :: Automatically Restart Firefox If Closed?

Apr 7, 2010

For a kiosk scenario, I run this script to close & restart Firefox when the screensaver is activated (the monitor also goes to sleep).I want to run a loop that, if Firefox is closed, it will automatically re-open. Is there a way to use dbus-monitor to accomplish this?Quote:

my $cmd = "dbus-monitor --session "type='signal',interface='org.gnome.ScreenSave r', member='ActiveChanged'"";

Fedora :: Firefox Does Not Restart?

Jul 14, 2009

1). Since last few days my firefox does not restart. In order to restart, I have to remove .parentlock even when I closed the firefox properly after my previous run

Firefox restarts happily when it crashes, and after two crashes, it apologizes but crashes the third and fourth time :-)

2). The other problem is that it crashes a lot on applets.. I use my school blackboard which uses applets a lot (for different utilities), and it crashes 1 out of 5 times on running an applet. I think it due to the IcedTea and/or Java (TM) plugin 1.6.0_06-b02. I have both plugins enabled in Firefox plugins list.

Software :: Firefox Will Not Restart After Shutdown?

Apr 21, 2010

A few days ago an upgrade to FF 3.6.3 was pushed at me by Mandriva. I accepted it, of course.

Since then, firefox refuses to restart after a shutdown, and there are no error messages in any log or in the bash window if I try to start it that way.

I tried a couple of times to uninstall/reinstall it, but no joy.

Finally figured out that if I reloaded the .mozilla directory in my home directory from a daily backup, FF would restart.

This suggests that FF 3.6.3 is corrupting something either while it is running or when it shuts down.

It's pretty consistent, and makes it rather hard to use FF. The lack of error messages is making it rather difficult to sort out.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Stays Open For Few Seconds And Then Dies And Won't Restart

Sep 2, 2010

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 and after a recent software update, I found that my web browsers crash constantly. Firefox stays open for a few seconds and then dies and won't restart. Google Chrome keeps giving me the "Aw, Snap!" screen. Seamonkey and Epiphany run for a while and then crash. After some research, I uninstalled Flash, but that didn't change anything.On a possibly related note, I've been informed of disk errors during boot and prompted to fix them twice in the same two week period.

Ubuntu :: Can't Add Terminal, Places, System Etc To Panel?

Aug 13, 2010

I removed my main panel this morning, which meant I lost all the launcher icons like the Terminal, places, system, etc. I right-clicked and selected New Panel, but when I select Add to Panel, it doesn't offer me the ability to put these items back on. The list included Clock, Weather, Garbage and Desktop, but doesn't include the others. I can't relaunch the Terminal. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, as without terminal or application access, obviously the my system functionality is pretty limited.

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Upgrade Or Reinst Causes White Terminal Screen And Endless Restart Of X Server

Apr 29, 2011

I'm having lots of trouble with 11.04. Note: everything used to work beautifully on 10.10 for me. I first upgraded and ran into all the problem below, then reinstalled clean and still have the same issues.

1. Terminal screen is unreadable after grub menu. The screen is all white and text is garbage looking. My graphics card is an nvidia fx5200.If I edit the boot option for linux and remove the line 'set gfxpayload = $linux_gfx_mode', the terminal looks normal again.

2. Unity or Compiz or both are broken for me.

Regardless of whether I fix the issue in 1 or leave it there, after booting into X11 my desktop looks like it is blinking. I think my unity keeps restarting. If I disable compiz and use meta city the screen is stable but I have no menus making it useless.

NOTE: I didn't explicitly install any nvidia drivers, not sure if it did it install it automatically as part of the isntallation.

I don't care for Unity (even though it looks kinda nice). I just want my X11 working again with HW acceleration. I am happy to go back to a working gnome except I don't know how. After the upgrade, I was able to switch my driver from nvidia to vesa in xorg.conf and get something usable (but horribly slow), I think it was classic and not unity. However a fresh isntall has a stub for xorg.conf with nothing much in it. If all else fails, I will reinstall 10.10 and wait for a more stable 11 release.

Update: I used to tick automatic login which took it straight to unity which meant I ran into 2. and made this version unusable.If I untick this option on installation I can at least switch to classic and use my desktop.

Fedora Installation :: Java Sun - No New Plugin After Firefox Restart

Sep 21, 2009

I 'am trying to install Java on fedora but I 'am stuck a this line on this tutorial [URL]. Use spacebar to read the agreement. At the end type yes to proceed with the installation. To make Firefox use the installed plugin type:
su -c 'yum remove java-*-openjdk-plugin'
su -c 'ln -s /opt/jre1.6.0_14/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so

Restart Firefox and Tools -> Addons -> Plugins. If the plugin was successfully installed you should see Java(TM) Plug-in among the plugins. Now, if you also want to run java programs using Sun's java type in a console:

My shell
[root@shadow ~]# ln -s /opt/jrel.6.0_16/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so
> /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so
You have mail in /var/spool/mail/root
[root@shadow ~]# ln -s /opt/jrel.6.0_16/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so
ln: creating symbolic link `/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so': File exists
After restart Firefox i don't see any new plugin. ?

SUSE :: Firefox Wouldn't Restart When Perform Ps In Bash?

Dec 23, 2008

If one re-boots an openSUSE computer with open Firefox, the Firefox restarts when the system restarts. Actually, every application that was open, restarts.However, sometimes, Firefox does not restart.When I perform ps in bash, I see a few Firefox processes do run, but there is no graphical evidence.If I run Firefox explicitly - stll, no graphical evidence.If, however, I kill all Firefox processes, it can now be started normally.Does someone know a reason for such peculiar behavior ?

Ubuntu :: Firefox Disappeared From A Panel?

May 28, 2010

take it as read im still learning Ubuntu and occassionally do stupid things, like click on the unsubcribe buttons on unwanted email.

Did that and for some obscure reason i lost the default firefox icon from the top task bar. I could make a launcher on the desktop but i failed to find the firefox exe. I did get it to show hidden files, found the firefox folder but no exe file or similiar to launch.

Would someone be so kind as to tell me where to drill so i can at least put the firefox launcher on the desktop. As a fill in im using chromium, and i did find its folder hidden in firefox's.

ie... [username]/mozilla/firefox/chromium ??

Fedora :: Remove A Panel From GNOME In Terminal?

Jul 14, 2010

I created a new panel in Gnome (Fedora 12) and it wasn't showing up right. So I just told it to make another (with the same results), and finally one more. So with the two that are there by default, that's 5 total panels... None of the newly created panels where displaying at all. But after creating the last one the system froze up. Now when I try to boot into fedora my system locks up as it's trying to load GNOME...

Is there any way for me to remove those panels through BASH? So I can just boot to a prompt and get them removed. After that I imagine GNOME will load correctly again...

Ubuntu :: Couldn't Maximize Firefox Cause Application Not Listed On Panel

May 7, 2010

I am running Ubuntu 10.04 with dual monitors with a nvidia GeForce 8400GS. I can't figure out how to fix. On the primary screen on the Gnome Panel it shows all my open applications. I currently have VirtualBox, Firefox, and 3 Terminal windows open and they show up on the panel. I can minimize and maximize,etc from the panel bar. This is my issue. If I move say one of the Terminal sessions to the second monitor it disappears from the primary monitor's panel bar.

If I click the hide all applications and show desktop icon there is no way for me to reopen just that terminal window that was on my second screen. I noticed this when I moved my Firefox window to the second screen and minimized everything with the show desktop icon. I could not maximize Firefox cause the application was not listed on the panel. I had to kill Firefox and relaunch.

General :: Location Of A Program Running In Terminal - Launched From Panel?

Dec 17, 2010

I am using DreamLinux. I have pinned a program, that runs in terminal, to the launcher in the panel on desktop. The program's executable file (name: feap) is located in /home/User/feap2.2 After I added the launcher to the panel that runs the file in terminal, the program asks for the input file (text file with alot of commands) when run. By default the program accepts the files that are located in the same directory i.e. /feap2.2 , so I placed the input file in the same directory.

However when I run the program from the panel, and give the input file name, it says no such file exists. Then I gave the file name with full path, but problem was not solved. I have tried alot e.g. placed the input file at other locations, but all in vain. I have set all input file permissions to be accessible by User as well. I will be much relieved if someone suggests where to place the input file for the such program running in the terminal launched from panels?

P.S: If I open terminal, go to the directory (/home/User/feap2.2), run the program's exe file, and then give the file name, it accepts the input file and it give results.

Ubuntu :: Running Firefox Through Terminal?

either install complete Desktop Environment like Gnome, KDE, Xfce or install Xorg only. Desktop Environments will install a lot of other packages too but xorg will install core packages necessary to run X Server only.

I'm going through the same problem as Tkeins. I recently loaded Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick server, further I loaded KDE also. So while I can run Konquerer from within the KDE, but not the firefox. Further when I try it from console I get the same message 'No Display specified.
