[SOLVED] Ubuntu 10.04 Firefox and Java vs. Formula1
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 2, 2010
I though this was a 64 bit issue - I rebuilt my PC with Ubuntu 10.04 32 bit and I still have the same issue.
The issue - Formula1.com has a feature called Live Timing which runs a java applet to show track timing and commentary during qualification and races. When I attempted to launch it in the 64 bit Ubuntu I got a blank window and that was it.
The apple does run on my netbook running Ubuntu 9.04 with the Icedtea plugin v.6b14-1.4.1 and Firefox v. 3.0.19.
It runs in Firefox v.3.6.6 on Win XP with Sun Java 1.6.0_20.
It will not run on Ubuntu 10.04 with Firefox v.3.6.6. I created a VMWare Virtual machine to do some testing. Here is what I tried:
1 - Installed the Icedtea package and it dependencies from Ubuntu repositories - about : plugins in Firefox shows java installed (essentially the same as the 9.04 netbook) but the app does not run.
2 - Replaced the virtual machine with a fresh copy and installed sun java from the Ubuntu repositories. Linked Firefox to the
Crunchbang + Firefox = Blurry fonts?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 13, 2009
I've been using Crunchbang for a little while, and I've started to notice that I'm actually having to squint to see the text on every site (as well as the text used in the menus). What's weird is that these same sites look great in Ubuntu (I can actually see them and what not), but for whatever reason all of the text is blurry in crunchbang. Any ideas/suggestions?
CentOS VPS looking to launch firefox

[SOLVED] How to edit Firefox global settings on Edubuntu LTSP server
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 20, 2011
I recently did a clean install of Edubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal) with LTSP. After installing, I found that Firefox was on version 5. I've done customizations to Firefox in 3.6.x (proxy settings, etc) on other LTSP servers (Ubuntu 9.10) and have always used the firefox.js file located in /usr/lib/firefox-3.6.x/defaults/pref. When I looked, it doesn't exist in this directory. There is a syspref.js and I've added lines to that, but it doesn't seem to pull from that file. Is there a js file somewhere that I can use to set global changes to Firefox for all users on LTSP? I'm looking to set things like proxy settings, cache directories and sizes, etc....Any help is appreciated!
Firefox, Amule i Ubuntu es pengen continuament
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 23, 2009
Ja estic desesperat. Per mes que busco no trobo res que m'ajudi a resoldre el problema.
Desde que va sortir el nou Jaunty, Firefox, amule i Ubuntu es penjen continuament. Per el que he pogut averiguar lo del amule es un bug de dificil solució. El tema del firefox crec que ha d'estar relacionat amb les pagines que fan servir flash perque es para amb mes frecuencia amb aquest tipus de pagines. Les parades del Jaunty sembla que poden estar relacionades amb problemes de memoria ram.
Us deixo una petita descripcio del Sistema per si us ajuda en alguna cosa i podeu orientarme una mica.

Ubuntu On A Phone Or Firefox OS: Which Scares iPhone And Android Most?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 11, 2013
Only time will tell. Anyway,the developments here are interesting to watch.
Canonical has one ace in the hole – the desktop feature. A powerful phone with Ubuntu installed can serve as a regular PC, once connected to a monitor and a keyboard.
At a time when most of your applications are hosted in the cloud, the ability to have your phone run a thin client on a large screen could convince many to try this Linux distribution. Add the fact that a fleet of Ubuntu phones can be managed through the same tools as Ubuntu servers, and you can see how it could appeal to the enterprise users.
Firefox OS and Ubuntu OS opinions
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 28, 2013
What are your opinions? I'm new to linux in general, but I wonder if anyone can also shed some light on if Ubuntu mobile will be providing more privacy and security. Google's android seems to lack security and privacy in my opinion and it's been a concern of mine. Mainly tracking concerns.

Almagamate different OS Firefox's Bookmarks. Possible? Ideas/Suggestions?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 30, 2013
I am replacing my one and only desktop computer disk with 2 new ones, and with that am going to create a /MEDIA partition on the bigger platter and symlink it with /mnt in the / partition on the smaller SSD, that is going to boot and hold the /root distros.
I regulary have Xubuntu LTS and Debian Stable Xfce installed and will continue with that. I usually have 4-5 others too, but I don't save anything important in those and they are "expendable", Xubuntu LTS and Debian stable Xfce are not. So, with Xubuntu, I can backup Mozilla Firefox Bookmarks with this, and I assume I can do it with Debian's Iceweasel instance of Firefox, too. I cannot do it for both and try to install the backup instances to each, because of this warning:
***Caution: Restoring bookmarks from a backup will overwrite your current set of bookmarks with the ones in the backup file.***
Anyone have any ideas how I can have one instance of "Bookmarks" that is always acc
