[HELP!] Trouble uninstalling Firefox on Cinnamon!!!

Post by seawee65 »

I have just used pen drive Linux to install a 64 bit version of Linux mint (Cinnamon) onto a 16 GB flash drive.
I already installed Firefox once , but now I want to uninstall it, because I have just installed Google Chrome, which is my favorite web browser.
Unfortunately, now I CAN'T uninstall it. I searched everywhere, but no one has had my problem. First I tried

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get remove firefox
but then It has a whoe bunch of stuff, but the top is cut off because it was too big:

Code: Select all

Errors were encountered while processing:
 firefox
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
So then I tried sudo apt-get purge firefox, but the same thing happened.
Then I went to the synaptic package manager, and marked Firefox for complete removed. I click apply twice (the button then the popup button), then
this pops up:

An error occurred
The following details are provided:
E: firefox: unable to securely remove '/usr/lib/firefox/distribution/searchplugins/locale/en-US/wikipedia.xml.dpkg-tmp': Input/output error

So now I'm officially confused.

Does anyone know what to do? ANY help would be appreciated! :( :D

Re: [HELP!] Trouble uninstalling Firefox on Cinnamon!!!

Have you tried rebooting? Do a reboot, then before you do anything else, uninstall the program. I have occasionally gotten errors like this because a library was still in use when I tried to uninstall, even though I had quit the program.
