I run Ubuntu 10.10 LTSP server/client network and DO NOT want to upgrade Ubuntu... too much trouble, nobody can guarantee it will not hammer my LTSP install and besides, Unity is awful. I need newer Firefox due to some frequently used web pages, so I need an install procedure that will not hammer anything. It's a mission critical user environment. If anybody has positive experience with Firefox upgrade in similar environment please advise.

bp-1ebfd562-c4f0-4c58-a7f9-b19962140128

crash usually happens when I try to upload a doc, after clicking on buttons like "upload resume" type. FF 26 freezes from time to time for about 5-7 sec and than look like everything comes back again.

crash and freeze might be related but they dont happens with the same frequancy. mostly freezes, crash is about twice a day.

addons I suspect are "flashblock" 1.5.17 and "Ads EWOQ Mobile Viewr 1.2" possibly "noscript"

while "Noscript" is not important, I cant do my work without "Flashblock" and "Ads EWOQ".

I was NAGGED into upgrading from Firefox 28 (Which was working FINE) to FF 29. EVERYTHING about it SUCKS. NOIA is broken. Cannot download classic restore add on or ANY add on for that matter.

What were the developers thinking ESPECIALLY when the classic restore has been downloaded over ONE MILLION times.

That has to tell you something about perhaps leaving it the eff alone.

Of course I did not image the computer before I upgraded to 29 so not I have to spend hours trying to unwind what the upgrade did

We're running puppy linux so downgrading become a little more problematic

Seriously guys, you forced the FOUNDER out of the organization for expressing his views on a subject and then you cr*pped FF 29 out?

Maybe it's not too late to get him back and FIX what you have done

Really pissed off about this

I can't play any videos which are now HTML5 or the newer Flash. It's frustrating that sites change my format so I can't even watch my own videos. Especially on Photobucket. Even Facebook is changing up so the videos are choppy, yet Chrome and Opera play them fine because they run Flash 18.0.0.160.

When I send or receive instant messages in Firefox Hello, I hear the notification sound and a space opens below the webcam view where the instant message bubbles would appear, but no instant messages appear. When I type a message and press enter, it shows up on the other person's screen but not on mine and it does not remove the text from the textbox I've typed it into. I am using Hello on Firefox browser on a Lubuntu OS. Thank you.

Dear Sirs,

I tried to improve Firefox performance by following the steps at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Firefox_on_RAM

In brief,

   open about:config in the address bar
   set browser.cache.disk.enable to "false" (double click the line)
   verify that browser.cache.memory.enable is set to "true" (default value)
   add the entry (right click->new->integer) browser.cache.memory.capacity and set it to the amount of KB you'd like to spare, or to -1 for automatic cache size selection. (Skipping this step has the same effect as setting the value to -1.) [I skipped]
   profile backup using tar zcvfp ~/firefox_profile_backup.tar.gz ~/.mozilla/firefox/xyz.default
   creation of a script:

firefox-sync

  1. !/bin/sh

static=main link=xyz.default volatile=/dev/shm/firefox-$USER

IFS= set -efu

cd ~/.mozilla/firefox

if [ ! -r $volatile ]; then mkdir -m0700 $volatile fi

if [ "$(readlink $link)" != "$volatile" ]; then mv $link $static ln -s $volatile $link fi

if [ -e $link/.unpacked ]; then rsync -av --delete --exclude .unpacked ./$link/ ./$static/ else rsync -av ./$static/ ./$link/ touch $link/.unpacked fi

First execution of the script: $ killall firefox firefox-bin $ chmod +x ~/bin/firefox-sync $ ~/bin/firefox-sync

Script calling every login and logout: echo '~/bin/firefox-sync' | tee -a ~/.bash_logout ~/.bash_profile >/dev/null

After this Google Play Books fails with the error:

Can't open book

To read books on Google Play, set your web browser to allow cookies for books.googleusercontent.com. Learn more

Firefox

   Open Firefox.
   Click on the Firefox menu > Preferences > Privacy.
   Under “History,” select Use custom settings for history.
   Next to “Accept cookies from site,” click Exceptions.
   Under “Address of website,” type books.googleusercontent.com.
   Click Allow.

Did that many times. Kept failing. Restored the first setting set browser.cache.disk.enable to true again. Kept failing. Loaded again the cookie exeption for playbooks. Worked.

Then I restored the disk.enable setting to false, and since that Google Play Books won't work anymore with either setting, cookie exeption or anything.

I'll apreciate any guideline before the profile deletion; or if it helps you to improve Firefox I'll be glad to help.

Regards,

Nicolás Adamo

When I click the button to forget browser history, and then I select the option of forgetting the last 24 hours, at first it selects what I wanted BUT as soon as i click the final "forget" button, it automatically switches me to only 5 minutes and then disappears with the "thank you" message for me to click on. It won't let me forget 24 hours. This happened over and over. This is not something a user can fix. Only Mozilla Firefox can fix it. I know you are made up of volunteers, so I will appreciate your time whenever you can reply and whenever you can fix the problem. Also, I will appreciate if you are able to make it so we can forget all browser history, not just 24 hours. Thank you for your generous time and hard work.

I installed FF50 on... Mint 13 kde (1,7mhz laptop),... Mint 16 kde (2,2mhz pc and 2core2,4 mhz laptop)... and kubuntu 14 kde allso on the 2core laptop. They all had a fresh distro.... My Mint 17 kde (2core 2,4mhz pc) is still running FF49.

I updated the standard FF's for syncing with my other Linux mint 17 and mint 13 kde with FF49, computers. These works fine, using FF sinds 1999. I started to use linux sinds 2003, ended windows xp 2 years ago. So linux is not unfamiliar to me. (data recovery win, bash, finding solutions online)

At startup it gives an error screen. I just reinstalled FF50 on the mint 16 (2core) to send you the logfile. i mentioned my email , date, and question title. I dont feel like fiddeling with cache cleaning, setting, savemode from cl bash and more, to get ff50 working. I am open to helping when possible. I switched to chromium for a functional browser. Most addons i used on ff work. I hope you can find a solution for this big bug and i can come back some day. I hope you can share the solution, cant imagine i am the only one.

kind regards

I posted this merely to get some attention on this issue. Why can't Ubuntu, Mozilla, and Adobe get their respective acts together and solve this?

So-called experts telling everyone to stop trying to view Flash videos is NOT helpful. Many websites are still building them. Also, what about older videos that retain value to view? Mozilla telling everyone that they no longer support Flash plugin and have a replacement in latest Firefox is NOT helpful, since Ubuntu makes it impossible to install it because of their proprietary extensions. Adobe providing an up-to-date Linux version of the plugin is NOT helpful, since Mozilla has blocked them in all Firefox's that come with Ubuntu releases. Ubuntu seemingly ignoring the issue is NOT helpful. So, what's a user to do, go back to Windows?

I will post this everyplace that I can find on the Web until something is done!!

I want DuckDuckGo search engine URL to be "https://start.duckduckgo.com" instead of default "https://duckduckgo.com". How can I accomplish this?

Simply removing DuckDuckGo search engine from settings and then adding start.duckduckgo.com to search engines do not work as it produces "Search engine with this name already exists" error.

Any tips?
