    Default Re: Firefox Error

    Firefox in safe mode did not work.

    so I tried this:

    What I finally did was uninstall it, download the current version from the Firefox site, installed that one. It started without a problem. The only extra thing I did afterward was to add a symbolic link in /usr/bin/ to point to the new executable location.
    and it worked! thanks!

    Yes, it was truly bizarre occurrence. Even more odd is that the downloaded version is the same as the system installed version. I would have thought them to be the same. I guess not.

    ok, so now firefox runs, but somehow flash is not linked to firefox, so I can't see any flash content. I use 64bit version. what should I do?

    go to this Firefox Flash installation page. Follow the directions.

    Or you could try re-installing Firefox from the Software Manager again. I just did that and it functioned normally, i.e., it did not crash. And has all of the plugins.

    One conjecture is that something in the profile got damaged and interacted badly with the default Firefox installation. After having run the manually installed version, whatever was damaged got fixed.

    Or some other reason. I don't know...
