i have loaded Ubuntu desktop, studio, server, mint. I know I have a good internet connection because I get the latest packages during the install, but as soon as I try to run Mozilla or any program that uses the internet the program crashes.
- My network card is OK because i can see my intranet. I am also seeing my USB ports tend to come and go front to back erratically. please help i am trying to setup a Linux PC for my wife.
- I have heard that running graphical programs as root will mess up your profile; so i created a user account and get the same results. Firefox, Thunderbird and all programs that need internet access crash. I have sent crash reports but have not got a response yet. i have a valid DHCP assigned IP address that I can ping on the intranet.
