Can you please confirm if you have downloaded Firefox from http://getfirefox.com. Also, is it possible for you to confirm that the version of the file you downloaded is the same as the FTP version of the Firefox 25.01 https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/25.0.1/linux-x86_64/en-US/firefox-25.0.1.tar.bz2 (this is the 64-bit version of Firefox).
Hello gnittala, The problem seems to have resolved itself. For your edification below is what happened from the start of the problem. Thank you very much :) I downloaded firefox-25.0.1.tar.bz2 from: https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-25.0.1&os=linux&lang=en-US I extracted it to /opt/firefox using sudo I am running Ubuntu 10.04 32bit Then: sudo rm /usr/bin/firefox sudo ln -s /opt/firefox/firefox /usr/bin/firefox This is my normal update procedure for Firefox and has been working for years. Anyway this time I got some error message in another language when I started Firefox. Sorry I did not grab a screen shot or record the message. Then I tried the same thing on an Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit box. Same thing. Then I downloaded the British tarball from: https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-25.0.1&os=linux&lang=en-GB Success. Worked fine. Then today just for another try I re-installed the US version using the same steps as above. This time it worked fine. When I first start Firefox after the install I get the "Checking addons" message and it starts fine. Previously some error message. The puzzle is that I used the same downloaded file. I have been re-downloading it every day and using MD5Sum to check if the file has changed. No change. MD5Sum = 34f448f96de98e5b7f62edb21934d0ca Anyway whatever happened has fixed itself. Go figure. Thanks again.
