I had this behaviour with Firefox too. It was opening PDFs, .DOCs, .DOCXs, etc with Gedit. Very annoying. Didn't matter than the Applications list in Firefox specified LibreOffice, Evince, etc., as the preferred application UNLESS I clicked on the 'Show All Downloads' link at the bottom of the downloads menu (in the firefox taskbar). To fix this, I opened ...

For me with transmission-daemon the solution was following (according to this doc) create an executable file /usr/local/bin/magnet with these commands sudo echo "#!/bin/sh" >> /usr/local/bin/magnet sudo echo '/usr/bin/transmission-remote -n yourTransmissionUserName:YourTransmissionPassword --add "$1"' >> /usr/local/bin/magnet sudo chmod +x ...

Thank you for leading me to a solution, resetting Firefox worked. The culprit was a new setting in about:config "privacy.trackingprotection.enabled" which I had set to true. Seems Yahoo Mail is enforcing its tracking even for paid accounts, causing such strange behaviour.

I have set only network.auth.force-generic-ntlm-v1 to true and now NTLMv1 authentication works on sites and proxie. I think, this occurs, because parameter network.negotiate-auth.allow-insecure-ntlm-v1 was renamed to network.auth.force-generic-ntlm-v1 (bugzilla)

If you run in a terminal sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade this may install the newest version 37 of FireFox if the upgrade was hold back/could not have been installed because it has different dependencies in comparison to version 36.

You can see from the full publishing history for Firefox in Ubuntu that v37 has been available in every supported version of Ubuntu in the hours following 2015-04-07 09:31:51 UTC. In supported versions of Ubuntu (Precise, Trusty and Utopic) it's sitting in both the updates and security repos. In Vivid (which is still just about in development, it's just in ...

I've just tested it and the same problem occurs with me (v2.0.9). This is probably just a temporary problem. You should create a new issue. So you can best be helped.

To answer the actual question: Yes, a software can write to a device directly but contrary to your assumption this doesn't destroy a file system since software also can read directly from the file system. If the software does everything right it would just be like reading and writing the usual (indirect) way. Remember that it just had to do what your system ...

You could also just change the homepage setting in firefox and not use the "about:startpage", it's main function is google anyway, so setting the homepage to www.google.com is effective at resolving the issue.

That is because Flash player is not supported for Firefox in Linux any more or at least the latest version. To solve your problem you can either use Google Chrome or Chromium-browser with Pepper Flash Plugin. If you still want to use Firefox then do the following steps sudo add-apt-repository ppa:skunk/pepper-flash sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install ...

I was also affected by this problem. The only language support I have installed is English and there was no change to menus, just the firefox about:start page (default home page). The problem persisted after a reboot. I opened System Settings->Language Support to check for any changes on the Language tab and found none. I switched to the Regional Formats ...

Your question is a bit unclear. I understand that you are missing the menu-row with options such as "File", "Edit", "View", and so on, in Firefox. This menu-bar is hidden by default in Firefox. To show it permanently, press alt. Click on "View", and then go down to "Toolbars". Make sure there is a tick (✔) next to "Menu Bar".

Thank all for responses. I installed "clamav" and ran a full scan on my system; Unfortunately I forgot to tell it to save scan log, I thought it would do it itself; anyway, my problem solved and I don't know what was the real cause.

The best solution to the problem of a vulnerable, out-of-date Flash installation--or even an up-to-date one that works poorly--may be to uninstall Flash entirely. Often it is not needed, as HTML5 has largely taken over. Thus removing Flash is a real solution for many people, and should probably be considered first before moving on to other solutions that ...

Chrome on Linux will not work with Java, as NPAPI support was dropped in Chrome 35.0. As such, you will need to use Firefox. It seems like you do not have the Java browser plugin installed. You can install Java JDK 8 and the browser plugin from the Web Upd8 Java PPA. Open the terminal and enter these commands in, line by line: sudo apt-add-repository ...

It is the android device used for usb tethering which shows up as a server on the network. The page is shown because apache is installed on the computer, and it thinks that android, located at 127.0.55.55 is a website. As the so called website(the phone) does not have any webpage, apache shows the default page instead. As Apache is not needed on a desktop, ...

I had to do a "Firefox refresh", which seems to be a way to import old settings into a new version of Firefox.

Your issue has nothing to do with the browser let alone Ubuntu. Even though some element may look like links, it is possible that it points to a bogus "URL". These elements can have a so-called event handler registered to them which can trigger on certain events, like clicking. Depending on the web application, it can then simply change the page URL or ...

Enter your URL as value of preference: network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris. It worked for me on FF 37 Ubuntu 14.10. I guess that a comma separated list may be entered too.

You normally end up at a multi language web page when starting Firefox, and the language used depends on the browser's language preference settings. Go to Edit -> Preferences -> Content and click the Choose... button to change it.

I would like to figure this one out myself, but unfortunately, I don't know; Assuming you use the Unity Interface, download the 'unity-tweak-tool' (if you use the Ubuntu Software Centre, lose the dashes).

You may prefer this alternative, a Firefox extension which creates a new context menu item: "Save image in folder" You can add as many folders as you like to the menu item's dropdown, so it's basically the same as choosing "Save image as" without choosing a file format or folder. So Right-click > Save image in folder > YourCustomPicFolder EDIT: Or ...

I've learnt how to manually update Firefox, which solved the problem. I can visit any site. As I've stated before, I'm completely new to Ubuntu and Linux... working with this sort of code especially. It was a bit overwhelming fresh out of the Ubuntu gates. Thanks
