Re: Thunderbird won't open on fresh install of Mint 17.3 (SOLVED)

"Running such programs like Thunderbird or Firefox with elevated rights is not an appropriate way to solve any problem"

That may well be true, but it was the only way I could find to get TB to run! No other methods were suggested :?

Re: Mint 17.3 MATE - Firefox keeps on crashing/freezing

After using Firefox a couple time and after I had closed it, I got another pop-up message saying Firefox has crashed. I have been getting those as well as the freezes :(

Re: Mint 17.3 MATE - Firefox keeps on crashing/freezing

"Open your file-manager and make hidden files visible (press ctrl-h).
Rename the folder .mozilla to .mozilla.bck"

OK I have done this and then imported my bookmarks saved in a Folder, so I will see how this now behaves

"Firefox preferences and disable ALL of your add-ons"

Mint 17.3 MATE - Firefox keeps on crashing/freezing

I'm running Mint 17.3 Mate 64bit on a HP AIO PC and I have been experiencing frequent Firefox crashes/freezes

Today I downloaded a Firefox update but the problem persists :(

Checking Update Manager tells me I'm using kernel 3.19.0-32 if that helps

Any solutions for this problem?
