I am running Ubuntu 10. This has happened with Linux Mint 8 also only not as frequently. Could be related to Java, seems to be when I visit Java or Flash sites or possibly sites that use either for advertising since sometimes it's random.

This happened

A few times a week

Has done it for months, increasing in frequency.

Every time I right click, click on file/edit/(etc), to go a page that opens a message box, click the URL box to see the previous entries I've put in, and other similar things, firefox outright freezes. I need to force quit the application.

I'm currently running Mozilla Firefox 3.6.7 under RHEL5 (2.6.18-194.8.1). Previous versions of Firefox were working fine.

I have run the application in safe mode (everything checked), deleted my .mozilla, reinstalled Firefox, reinstalled GTK libraries, and searched the internet for hours and the closest one I could find to my problem was http://support.mozilla.com/tiki-view_forum_thread.php?comments_... with no answer.

Any help or direction would be appreciated.

I have two profiles for firefox. But sometimes Firefox starts with the first active, sometimes with the second. The question is: How can I force firefox to use the profile "default" as the default profile on startup when there is no other instance running? When I want to use a second profile in parallel I use the command "firefox -P --no-profile" to start the profile selector.

I sometimes use Private Browsing. However, I noticed that when Private Browsing is enabled, plugins are disabled. I assume this is because some of the plugins maintain personal data, so Firefox cannot guarantee that the plugins will not store personal data during the Private Browsing session.

Still, I want to enable plugins during Private Browsing and I accept the risks involved. But I have not yet figured out how to enable plugins during Private Browsing.

Firefox 3.6.4 on Centos 5.5. If i put a keyword in the address bar rather than a URL then i am always re-directed to "searchportal.information.com". I have uninstalled Firefox and manually removed all files/directories i can find. After re-install the problem is still there. If i disable dns and put a keyword such as "sourceforge" then the status bar shows "Looking up searchportal.information.com". There is no reference to this URL in about:config and changing keyword.URL has no effect. I run Firefox on Fedora, XP and Vista without this problem. What is going on?

Firefox hasn't stopped asking to save passwords entirely. And I tried deleting/renaming those files mentioned by people in various forums but nothing helped. If I try the same site in Firefox on Windows or in any other browser in Windows/Ubuntu they ask me whether to save the passwords. The problem lies with my Firefox in Ubuntu (now Firefox 3.6.6 and Ubuntu 10.04).

It's a difficult situation. Please post if you have a solution.
