I was unable to access my Facebook account because a few days ago firefox stopped loading the page. I am using firefox 3.5.7 Ubuntu 9.10 with the latest (2.6.31-17) kernel. I have the Adblock Plus extention, but it has no effect on the issue (I tried to disable it).
I'm a bit confused but not surprised by this problem I'm having. I liked the look of the FoxTab addon for Firefox (Swiftfox actually but I don't think it should make any difference) mostly for homepage thing it has which is similar to the Chrome/Safari opening page.
I followed the FoxTab instructions for using this page when I open a new tab and that works fine, and then (as instructed) changed my homepage to 'about:blank' but this only works when I click the homepage button.When I open a new Swiftfox session it doesn't come up with anything (just a blank page -
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.
12.2 is up to date and am running the Firefox from Slackbuilds. There was an update to FF a few months ago. Since then FF "hangs" when I close it out. It does seem to shut down better from the home page instead of whatever site I happen to be on at the time of shutting down. I do have a few addons to FF but they were there before the update with no issues. The addons are Gmarks [disabled], Rankchecker, Scribefire, SEO for FF [disabled], SEO Toolbar, Weatherbug and Web Developer. I haven't done any "fixes" so I'm fairly certain I didn't create my own problem.
since ubuntu's decided that firefox needs to have their strange and weird theme for the buttons... what's the easiest way to remove this new way that it decides that the button configuration for when you want to close it and other things? I cannot seem to find this file, and i've already tried to delete my .mozilla file and i've installed swiftfox and it's using it. So where in the world did the Ubuntu UI people put this thing at?
I'm using Firefox on 10.10. I haven't installed crazy stuff on my machine as far i can recall (i used the repositories, except for gtk+3) and i didn't go to any weird website either, same traffic as usual. The only weird thing was that my internet connection was abnormally slow this morning.
Today though some "http://www.browsersearch.org/" imposes itself on my browser even though my homepage is set to www.google.com. I can't figure how this happens nor how i can get rid of it.
I just downloaded Ubuntu 9.04 while using the 8.10 live cd. I was planning to burn it to a disc, but I forgot all about the live cd issue. So is there anyway I can burn Ubuntu 9.04 without having to download it to a real os. Or can I make a bootable usb with the live cd of 8.10.
I try and try and try to make a live CD.. I get "fails" in the process..? This time I managed to get a file in Home, but it's locked, and I've tried everything I found on the Net to unlock it, to enable creating the CD...It seems I am forced to reinstall Ubuntu to clean this mess out. I can't unlock the file..?All I wants is an install CD of the OS how I likes it, with my background pix, my music, and my choice of peripheral softwares, avoiding doing all those downloads and all that tweaking... Is this possible with Ubuntu?..
Ubuntu forum home page will lock up, just for several seconds once I scroll past the community cafe link. Then the page will free up, it is just annoying to have to wait 5-10 seconds for the page to free up.
I am running 64 bit ubuntu 10.04 and my browser is google chrome.
Does this happened to anyone else? Any advice on a corrections, this seems weird enough to not have a fix
This began after I deleted my gnome configuration files. I logged out, logged back in, and Firefox and Icedove autostarted like they are supposed to. Firefox asked me if I wanted it to be the default browser, (which it was before), and I indicated yes. Now, whenever I click links in Icedove, a new Firefox window (rather than a new tab) opens and loads my homepage instead of the correct website. I've tried changing my default browser and then changing it back with xfce settings; Icedove opens links in Firefox regardless of the default browser setting. I've tried various changes to the setting
/desktop/gnome/url-handlers/http (and https) with gconf-editor: /opt/firefox/firefox-bin %s (this was the setting when I first opened gconf-editor) /opt/firefox/firefox-bin "%s" /opt/firefox/firefox-bin "%u" /opt/firefox/firefox-bin "%U"
None had any effect.I know that the urls in my e-mails are not the problem because the correct site loads when I copy and paste them.
I finally got this thing exactly how I want it with all sorts of tools,... I would like to know how to make a live install cd so I can share with others and put on other computers.. Like be a as clear and specific as you can.. should I leave the install file there on the main desktop too?
I got BT's repo's set and ready to install, tho I haven't installed them all just yet cause I not wanna crash the system, so I guess what I am asking has anyone sucecfully done this and what are the specific risks here. I have uploaded crunch and that works fine if I do it manually from the command line. the kernal seems to be update-able as well to BT's Kernal, I am not sure if I should do this or not in fear it might crash the Ubuntu system somehow. I guess what I might do next is install everything but the Kernal and install the executable links to the drop down menu by hand per the menu structure.
What I would ideally want is to have all the functionality of BT in Ubuntu which is pretty close to where I am at. Also, when I am done I want to make a live CD of this system so that I not have to do this ever again as it is very time consuming. What program would be used for that? Would any of my user data transfere? I don't want my user data to be transferred to the live CD just the raw system data etc. Anyone done this and would like to chat via skype? that would be best, but I'll take any help I can get at this point. I am using Ubuntu 9.10 for all this.
I'm trying to make a live CD with UCK, and I've got it all working perfectly except for the proprietary Nvidia drivers. When I try to sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-185 it won't install properly giving me an error saying it won't work because it's chrooted (which it is), so I guess my question is how do I install the proprietary drivers into a chrooted environment so I can put it on a live CD?
I would just test it until I figured it out, but customizing the CD it about an hour long process after all is said and done so I'd rather avoid it.
how to make an ubuntu live USB that's bootable, without having to install qt? I've looked at the ubuntu guides on the matter but they either seem to be out of date, incomplete, or tell you to use unetbootit that requires qt. It seems silly to have to install hundreds of MB of qt on my tiny eeepc just to make a bootable usb.
There is a live internet streaming cast that runs on Friday's. I can't watch it using firefox. so I have to reboot into windows, use ie to view it. I want to be able to view it while using firefox via ubuntu.
my system administrator is mean, and i cannot make live cd's, the disk drives don't burn. i have a 10.04 lts ubuntu ISO, and i have tried to make it live usb mode, using macintosh 10.5.8, intel , but you need a password for any and all Sudo commands, so no terminal, and disk utility won't burn to a usb drive. seeing as how the disk drives don't or won't burn, it cannot be helped. i can't download applications for mac, need an administrator password to do so, but i can download windows applications, except my windows machine has no internet, not to mention the most sophisticated thing it can handell is windows 98 second edition. (btw, the windows machine won't burn either, and it doesn't read dvd's, or burned cd-roms, it is a 1995 micron nbku375)
I am trying to build abcde from slackbuilds.org and include needed packages like id3. When I went to build it I was unable to download the source from [url] and I get a 404 error in dutch. I was wondering if anyone had this issue or if there was another trusted place to grab the source code? I checked the archives of the slackbuilds-user mailing list to see if the issue is already known, but I didn't see anything.
I am using ubuntu 8.04 and i am trying to make iso image cd with running kernel. i know that there is documentation in ubuntu website in"how to make live cd" but the thing is this is my custom kernel. i have my own configuration. so i want this kernel to be work in live cd.
