General :: Use Firefox To Connect To Smb Shares Error "Firefox Doesn't Know How To Open This Address, Because The Protocol (smb) Isn't Associated With Any Program"

Jan 10, 2010

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: 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".

Ubuntu Networking :: Nfs Locking Files - Cannot Open For Editing, Or Open Firefox / Thunderbird?

Dec 12, 2010

Server - Ubuntu 10.04.1 lts
Client - Kubuntu 10.10

When I try to open any nfs-mounted file using OpenOffice, I get a pop-up window titled "Document in Use". The text of the message is:

"Document file 'abcde.odt' is locked for editing by:

Unknown User

Open document read-only or open a copy of the document for editing." I then have three options - <Open Read-Only>, <Open Copy>, & <Cancel> If I cp any of these files from the mounted directory to my home dir (not mounted), I can open them without problem.Also, my firefox & thunderbird date are in this mounted directory as well (sym links to ~dan/.mozilla & ~dan/.thunderbird). Both of these apps hang when trying to open, leaving two processes behind that need to be manually killed. Again, cp'ing the data out of the nfs-mounted dir onto a local dir resolves the issue, so I am 100% confident there is nothing missing or corrupted in the firefox &/or thunderbird data...

relevant entry in /etc/fstab:
server:/nfs/dan/Documents /home/dan/Documents nfs defaults 0 0
relevant entry in server's /etc/exports:
/nfs/dan/Documents client(rw)

Ubuntu :: Firefox Won't Open / Fix It?

Jul 19, 2011

I am using Ubuntu 11.04 with Unity and ever since one of the system upgrades a few weeks ago I have not been able to open firefox. If I click on the firefox icon on the side launcher, the icon flashes as if it is opening but firefox never opens. I also tried clicking on the icon from dash and nothing happens. The only way i can open firefox is if i open the terminal and type the firefox command.

In Gnome i have the same problem: I can only launch firefox from the terminal. When I click the icon on the top panel, or when I go to Applications->Internet->Firefox, I get the following error message:

Could not launch application. Failed to execute child process "LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libGL.so.1" (No such file or directory)

Does anyone have an idea of how I can fix this?

How do i roll back firefox5beta to firefox4 and keep updating to the latest stable releases w/out upgrading to beta? The only extension that isn't working is FEBE which is incompatible w/ firefox5beta (profile, extension and preference backup). Have to use FEBE beta7 under Firefox4 so I don't think a compatible release for Firefox5beta is going to come out any time soon.

Ubuntu :: Get A Java Plugin Manually Installed In Firefox?

Jul 21, 2011

using Xubuntu 11.04

I don't like Firefox 4 and 5 so I uninstalled it and installed FF 3.6.19 manually in the /opt directory. It works really well. I wanted to add a java icedtea plugin to FF. But I can't use Synaptics. Synaptics does not see the FF 3.6.19 - it does not know it's there and will try an install FF5 if I use it to install that plugin - makes sense it would do that.

How do I get a java plugin installed considering how FF is implemented on my system?

I can download a deb installer for the plugin and use the archive manager to get manually get files out of it but what I've tried so far didn't work...

Ubuntu :: Firefox 3.5.7 (ubuntuzilla Upgrade) Does Not Fully Quit / Crashes Firefox

Jan 9, 2010

I recently upgraded (via Ubuntuzilla) to firefox 3.5.7 and now, every single time I close Firefox, the program seems to crash without quitting completely.

First, I receive an error saying that the program will not close and asks me if I want to Force Quite or Wait for it to close on its own. This has been happening ever since I upgraded to Karmic and if I just wait it usually quits fully after a couple seconds.

Now what happens is this: the window still closes, but if I try to reopen Firefox then I get this error stating that Firefox is already open and therefore cannot be opened again. The only way to get back into Firefox is to restart the entire computer. (Incidentally, this is the same problem that occurs whenever I try to Force Quit Firefox)

This now happens every single time I "close" Firefox.

Does anyone know the source of this error? Or a workaround?

Ubuntu Servers :: Cannot Get PHP To Open In Firefox With Apache2

Apr 12, 2010

I'm using Ubuntu 9.10 with Firefox 3.5. I am trying to open a local php file in Firefox. I already installed Apache2. I already installed the PHP5 modules for Apache2. I already tried restarting Apache2 and I cleared Firefox's cookies and cache. Apache2 is currently running and PHP is in the "mods-enabled" folder. Yet every single time I try to open a local PHP file, Firefox asks me what program I want to use to open it. I have no idea how to proceed at this point.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Won't Open While Connected To The Internet?

Sep 12, 2010

The problem is Firefox won't open while the network manager has already established an adsl connection.

When I click on the FF icon it says starting FF & then nothing happens. Now, just as soon as I disconnect my adsl connection FF opens instantly.

Note: I only clicked it once while connected to the internet. I didn't click it again after disconnecting the adsl connection.

Now that FF is already running I can easily redial my ISP & start browsing.

Typing firefox at the terminal prints nothing.

OS:Lucid 64
FF Ver. 3.6.9
apparmor for firefox is enabled.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Will Not Open Email Attachments: Jpg's Or Pdf's?

Sep 21, 2010

I'm at a complete loss on this one.MY version of Firefox 3.6.10 (Ubuntu 10.04 LTS) opens all email attachments with no problem. However, my sister's machine--same 3.6.10 and 10.04 LTS--does not. Instead, she gets the following message: "(PDF or JPEG) could not be opened because the associated helper application does not exist. Change the association in your preferences."I've checked all her preference settings against mine, and they match...but mine works and hers does not. (Also verified that "Document Viewer" and "Image Viewer" are installed properly...)

Ubuntu :: Firefox Won't Open Local Files Normally

Apr 5, 2011

I'm running Firefox within YLMF 3.0 (a distro of Linux with Ubuntu 10.04).

When I go into "Help,About", it says ...
version 3.6.3
Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu
canonical - 1.0

While I'm in Firefox, when I try to open a local file (a "local file" meaning an HTM or image file stored on my computer as opposed to remotely through the internet) by going into the File menu and selectng Open (or by doing "Ctrl/O" from the keyboard), I get a dialog box prompting me to navigate to the file. When I navigate to the file and click on Open, the dialog box vanishes and nothing more happens. (The webpage that was already displayed is still there).

However, if I type the URL representing the local file into the address bar (for example, if I have a file called "homepage.htm" and it resides on the path "/home/user/html/", and I type "file:///home/user/html/homepage.htm"), it works and the file gets opened and displayed.

Also, if I'm not already in Firefox but instead go into the File Manager and navigate to the filename, then right-click on the filename, then choose "Open with", then choose "Firefox", Firefox will then be invoked with that file loaded in it.

But why can't I open the file the normal way from within Firefox by using "File,Open" (or "Ctrl/O" from the keyboard)?

Ubuntu :: Firefox Won't Open External Links

May 11, 2011

when I click an external link, it opens a NEW Firefox window, instead of opening a new tab in a ALREADY OPEN Firefox instance, and worst of all, IT STAYS IN THE HOMEPAGE, not going to wherever it was supposed to.this is bad, and it renders useless some software functions, like Gmail Notifier, when I click to go to my account.if I set Chromium as default browser, it works like a charm. I believe this is happening since Natty upgrade. and I'm using Firefox 4.
