Hi Everyone.

I see some error messages in my ".xsession-errors" file.
Could someone please explain what the following error messages mean and if possible, how to fix them. Thanks.

Thank you richyrich.

So the warning message "(<unknown>:1889): Gdk-WARNING **: XID collision, trouble ahead" is a bug caused by Firefox. What about other messages? Should I just ignore them?
