I frequently have to killall firefox. That should not be...

Kuphostiwe

I am running Firfox on a linux system (Slackware 14.1). Frequently, when I have terminated firefox (at least I think so), and I want to start it again, I get a message telling me that it is still running. In that case, I open a root console and enter "killall firefox". However, I somehow feel that things should be different. More convenient, at least.

Why Firefox 45?? I'm sure you know it's far behind on updates.

There are various potential reasons Firefox might hang during showdown. Usually after about 60 seconds a watchdog process will kill the Firefox process and display the Mozilla Crash Reporter. Have you ever seen that? Maybe it's different on Linux...

Setting aside bugs in your version, you could consider refreshing your profile if this issue can't be resolved any other way. See: Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings.

Well, I have Automatic Update ON, so I assumed, it would be up-to-date automatically. Well, that clearly does not work...

Impendulo Ewusizo

Firefox on Linux is updated through your repositories in package manager or if using official builds from mozilla.org like say www.mozilla.org/firefox/all/ then internal update.

If you have the tarball version from Mozilla then the Firefox folder needs read/write permissions for the user in order to do software updates. A easy way is to have Firefox in a folder in /home/ if the only user.

I changed the ownership of .mozilla/firefox from root:root (recursively) to my own userID. However, I do not see any automatic updating yet...
