Ubuntu & Firefox troubleshooting
April 17, 2012 12:58 AM Subscribe
Yesterday, my firefox install on ubuntu started misbehaving. The bookmarks toolbar only shows up if I remove it and and add it again. There are no URLs in Address bar and no URL display down where the status bar used to be. Several plugins have stopped working without being disabled. Sometimes tabs can't be closed. No session management and on and on. The problem seems to be some interaction of a ubuntu update and firefox not cooperating. After googling I have nothing and am at a complete loss for how to fix it. Where do people turn for support for ubuntu firefox problems that don't require them to be on either development team?

[and yes I am aware of Chrome, it is what I am using right now, but I had firefox set up to work how I liked and prefer it - when it works - though recent repeated breakages on firefox updates does have me teetering on switching]
