Firefox home url is invalid after the installation

Postby ngbrito » Sun Jul 01, 2007 9:55 am

Hi,

I'm a newbie to Linux Mint (and more or less to Linux in general) so I don't know if this is the correct forum to be checking this:

I have just installed Linux Mint 3.0 (Cassandra) and when I launch Firefox it shows the "File not found" error page because the home url is set to "file:///usr/share/ubuntu-artwork/home/index.html" which doesn't exist on my machine.

To me, this seems to be a bug in the installation of Firefox and although it is nothing serious, it is ugly and undermines the user's confidence on the OS.

Should I report this (where?) or is it already known?

Thank you

this is known. can't seem to find the forum where it was discussed, but, just set your homepage to file:///usr/share/linuxmint/releasenotes/cassandra.html and it will go away.

I think that you meant [url]file:///usr/share/linuxmint/releasenotes/index.html[/url]because cassandra.html doesn't exist in that directory.

Thanks
