I installed the Mozilla Firefox Security update via the “Updater Applet” today. Now I can’t access my preferences or save links/files. Trying to launch “preferences” open a blank box in firefox.
I also installed KDE4 yesterday and that may have done it too. I am running KDE 3.5 and don’t recall if I saved any files with Mozilla after I added KDE4 but it did wipe out some icons in KDE 3.5 and I have to fix that after I decided KDE4 was not for me and booted back to KDE 3.5
Now it will not even launch
A “security update” should not do this. This is WHY many people ignore security updates. Konqueror is NOT my idea of browser. I installed Opera too but I don’t like the interface.
Looks like all my preferences,cookies and bookmarks are useless now.
I am aware of that hidden directory but If I can not even launch the browser now that does me no good really. As it stands now I can’t even get it to run due to that JAVA error. After a bit I am going to restart my KDE session and see if that changes things at all.
