Try a clean install of Firefox on your Linux machine.

  1. Close Firefox completely. (File->Exit on Windows/Linux, Firefox->Quit on Mac)
  2. Rename the Firefox installation folder or move it elsewhere.
  • Linux: The install location varies based on distribution and installation method. Linux distributions usually don't put Firefox in its own folder, so this method can't be used.

3. [www.getfirefox.com Download Firefox] again and install it

Installing Firefox in Linux

If this fixes the problem, you can optionally check the old install folder for global extensions, components, or corrupt/locked files.
