Firefox 3.5.5 doesn start anymore

Postby kezza on Sun Nov 15, 2009 10:21 am

Hello,

I 'am started this week with the use of Linux Mint V8. I still have Xp on my system. Bit the first experience with Mint are exciting..
Yesterday i updated the system wich after about 90% hung up, Only a cold boot could help me at that moment.
After that Firefox isn' t starting anymore. Also a complete new Firefox installation over Synaptic and softwaremanager brings nothing.
All the other programs work fine, is it possible that I do the update again?

You might try completely removing Firefox, using Synaptic and then try re-installing it.

How did you install 3.5.5? That answer may lead to how to fix your problems. The only 3.5.x in the repos is 3.5.2 if I'm not mistaken.

Trying running Firefox from the terminal, and tell us what error messages pop up.
