Hi! I use Ubuntu & Lubuntu for general desktop computing, and I use an Ubuntu home server. I might just be able to help with some things. :) I'm a member of the Ubuntu Ohio LoCo.

I also work with Lubuntu QA managing bugs and testing development versions.

Try running Firefox in safe mode or disabling any Firefox extensions you are currently using as a first attempt.

Changing to "disk" partitioning from the word that was there before. Needed to make other phrasing edits to allow it to save.

Sure sounds like a hard drive failure to me. Can you mount the SATA hard drive using the PCManFM File Manager on the live CD?

That's strange - it worked for me on 14.04. I'll take another look.

revised Why can't Ubuntu 14.04 access the files on my Android phone?
I made the title a descriptive question - this might make it more likely to get responses or views from people with similar needs.

@neon_overload - XFCE power manager is included by default in Lubuntu and manages some power settings.

Was the server crashing before installing plex? Did the hardware run another OS before installing Ubuntu?
