It is not clear which is the method you are using to access the remote shares --- but yes, the path to a remote share is different in Linux and in Windows. The paths specification is different, really. If you can navigate to your file, you can see what the path (URL) is. If you are accessing the file with your browser, the one that (should) work with a ...

"go to about:config, set gfx.xrender.enabled to false, restart the browser, and retry." from comment #23 here. Apparently, the issue may not be limited to Lubuntu but be more of a hardware issue. See https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/firefox/+bug/1314924.

I'd like to comment, but my reputation does not allow this. You mentioned OTP and this rings a bell. Several SSL VPNs (which are talking of) store internal credentials and often to this by encrypting these credentials somehow. (e.g. with the users password) which is difficult with OTP ;-) So it depends how the internal authentication is performed (which ...

Right. Never mind. Found a workaround. Using Wine, installed the windows version of firefox, then the windows version of Flash. Now successfully watching Amazon instant material. It'll do until Amazon bin Flash, by which time, hopefully more effective HTML5 support will have been generated within Firefox et al. Wish it hadn't had to be done this way, as ...

Adobe is no longer developing the Flash for Firefox on Linux. You’re still getting security updates, but that’s it — your Flash Player plug-in is already several major versions out-of-date. Linux users can still use the Pepper-based Flash plug-in included with Google Chrome for Linux. This is the only way to get the latest version of Flash on Linux, ...

do an ifconfig eth0 and see if IPv6 is active again. After using sysctl to disable ipv6... if you reboot you may need to rerun the command again? If you didn't setup a boot script to do it you might find that ipv6 was re-enabled. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WebBrowsingSlowIPv6IPv4

There is no easy answer to this. The theory is that Ubuntu will only pull upstream changes into packages when it fixes a major enough security issue, in which case it should be issued as a security update to your version of Ubuntu after a testing period (within a week or two). Bugs that are unrelated to security usually won't be fixed in Ubuntu's current ...

The problem is a plugin in Firefox somewhere is doing this. We have to identify and remove that plugin. There's two ways to go about that. The destructive method: This is essentially trying to kill a fly with a huge weapon instead of a fly swatter. Burn (aka delete and reset) your Firefox profile, and remove all addons. Then install NoScript, and try ...

I do not think that you are using automatic proxy but rather manual proxy, because that is what you fill into /etc/environment. Try to select "Manual Proxy Configuration", fill in the HTTP Proxy as webproxy.mycompany.com, Port 8080 and click "Use this proxy for all protocols". If proxy items in ypour /etc/environment do something, than this must work for ...

Problem This is a bug in Firefox, specifically bug #932036. The answer by Dan Hulme describes how Firefox is supposed to work.

After checking my internet using the simple ping google.com command on my terminal, I learnt that I was experiencing about 3% data packet loss. I would suggest using the Firefox plugin 'Downthemall' or equivalent for Chrome. This way you can pause and restart your downloads when they stop receiving packets. Thanks to all the help on the comments!

Firefox 33 and beyond Mozilla added support for OpenH264 as a plugin in Firefox 33. To enable this plugin Firefox will now automatically download a binary from the OpenH264 website the first time you start the program. That sounds great, doesn't it? Wait… that was a pun. While this is indeed a very convenient solution it should also raise privacy and ...

It's not "modules" it's "add-ons" in Firefox 38.

First off, the install will not install a regular app. What it installs is known as a web app. This will cause it to still open up in your browser, but it will be able to do some 'smart' interactions with Ubuntu (like using Ubuntu's notification for notification, dash integration, volume panel integration etc.) and a shortcut will be added to the dash in ...

One solution which could be equivated with restarting Firefox/FF (debatable) is: If you have one FF window open then do the following: Open new window ctrl+n Switch to previous window Close the window ctrl+shift+w Reopen the window ctrl+shift+n Close the new window (optional) If you have more than one window open then only do 3 and 4 of the above. ...

You need to add the ampersand(&) to the end of the first line in your script, or use nohup. This trailing ampersand directs the shell to run the command in the background, that is, it is forked and run in a separate sub-shell, as a job, asynchronously. The shell will immediately return the return status of 0 for true and continue as normal, either ...
