Thread: Firefox is dead

  1. #1

    Angry Firefox is dead

    Hi all, i've just made the move from kubuntu and everything was going fine, but all of a sudden firefox just wont start. just a bouncing icon. I've removed it, re-installed it and upgraded it but still no joy.

    When i run firefox from the konsole i get this:

    Code:
    /usr/bin/firefox: line 126:  6801 Segmentation fault      $MOZ_PROGRAM "$@"
    If anyone can help me out i'd be very grateful.

    Thanks

    have you installed any add-ons?

    try : firefox -safe-mode
    and disabling the extensions in safe mode and then restarting in normal mode

    find which add-on is causing the problem

    have you tried using a different profile?

    firefox -P
    create a new profile
    see if that helps
