With 14.04, in Firefox after pressing the Home icon I get the Ubuntu page in the current tab and my home page in a new tab. With 13.10, pressing the Home icon took me directly to my home page. Is this a deliberate change, or a bug?
I've got a Firefox process with nothing in it but the Google home page (the "search" page, not the "homey" home page with news etc.) and this site. I've killed it and restarted it multiple times. It's burning massive amounts of CPU cycles doing ... what?
I notice that Firefox, over time, leaks memory terribly and uses more and more CPU, but not anything close to this much. What is it doing?
Mozilla released Firefox 13 Wednesday, which it says is a speedier, safer version of the open source web browser. The newly launched Firefox also boasts a new home page and tab page layout similar to those of competing browsers such as Google's Chrome.
As superuser I reinstalled firefox in terminal (yum reinstaall firefox)
this did not change the behavior of firefox--still unusable, but if I run firefox from a superuser terminal (or with sudo) It works fine.
Attached are screenshots of a page working (SuperUser) and the same page not workint (normal us
Just completed clean install of 14.04 from 12.10 - all has gone well apart from firefox. Once new OS installed, like many times before, I copied extentions and firefox from my backup disc to ~/.mozilla - but firefox will not run, it freezes at the opening page with the text transferring data from www.google.co.uk.... at the bottom of the page.
That's odd. Which hotel is it? Are you using Firefox or Iceweasel on CrunchBang? You may want to try this, and it may or may not work: Try setting your browser's home page to no home page (or google.com) or some other page than yahoo mail, save it, then open the browser to see if that makes a difference. If not, obviously you can change it back, but that would be my first try.
