comment Can't remove redirect malware on firefox
"without user's approval." are you saying you did not install it? (by installing a plugin). Does this also happen with chromium? (if not: it is something in FF; if it does check your /etc/hosts)

comment Updating Ubuntu 13.10 to 14.04
partial update means you did not update 13.10 before trying the upgrade to 14.04 (there is probably a kernel update in between that you need to do 1st).

comment Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql_2.sock' during manual installation of mysql
@nari2 that should be a question you should not need to ask. ps -ef | grep mysql would be my choice. By the way: if the socket is not created you probably have permissions problems.
