Thunderbird and Firefox crashing - SOLVED

Postby andybriz » Thu Feb 23, 2012 5:26 pm

Hi people

I am running Mint Xfce edition. Yesterday I did an update and since then both Firefox and Thunderbird crash on startup. In both cases a message dialog is displayed with the message

The application had a problem and closed.
Unfortunately, the crash reporter is unable to submit a report for this crash.
Details: The application did not identify itself.


Any ideas anyone?

Andy

Moved here by moderator

Try starting Firefox in safe mode. From terminal run:

Code: Select all

firefox -safe-mode

If you get any errors on the terminal, please share those here.

I have solved this. The problem was actually that I have no space left on my disk. Kind of surprised not to have seen some kind of warning!
