Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

This is a recent problem but I have no idea what caused it: I can only run firefox in safe mode. Any other mode, I get a completely khaki, unresponsive screen, that I have to forcibly terminate.

I have uninstalled firefox, and then re-installed it via synaptic. That didn't seem to work.

The problem occurs in all the four user accounts I have defined in the ubuntu.

I am running an ubuntu 11.10, amd64. My firefox is version 8.0.

what addons have you installed - how did you install them and from where? –  fossfreedom Dec 9 '11 at 12:51

This is embarassing. Rather suddenly, my firefox is working again -- even before I read the answers that you posted here.
