I just installed the new version of Firefox (59.0+build5-0ubuntu0.16.04.1) and I get this when I start it (translated from French):

Error analyzing XML: entity not defined
Location: chrome://browser/content/browser.xul
Line number 343, column 5:    <key id="key_quitApplication" key="&quitApplicationCmd.key;"

I have no button and no menu. I can do nothing in the browser. I tried to uninstall it and reinstall. Always the same error.

  • You editted browser.xul? – Rinzwind Mar 15 at 19:23
  • I guess it's showing line 343, and column 5 is a SPACE character. – waltinator Mar 15 at 19:26
  • Quick fix is to delete Firefox's data, which lives in ~/.mozilla - you can get to that folder by pressing Ctrl + H, and then delete (or rename) your firefox profile folder within the .mozilla folder. Beware that this will also erase all your bookmarks, history, and so on. This should fix it if you don't find another way. – JonasCz Mar 15 at 19:42
