Hi. I have Dell Mini Inspiron 910. Today, I updated the Better Privacy flash cookie eraser add-on on its preinstall Firefox based browser. Now, the browser crashes after 30 sec. I uninstalled Better Privacy add-on. Still the thing persists and even if I don't run my browser, I get the slow motion and my apps won't load. Please help.

Just a thought, look at your Firefox plugins and see if you have more than one flash item enabled.

No. Only one Shockwave Flash 10.0.r32. Also, I don't even start FireFox, I just get the same symptoms on any app. It just slows downa dnthen quits the application.

Have you tried looking in System monitor when it hangs to see what all is running?

In Processes everything is "sleeping" but gnome-system-monitor and dell-launcher..I don't know what are all those files are as I am not too familiar with Linux. Just ran Firefox, it was fine for 3 minutes. Then I ran something else, and it seems like system suffocates from lack of resources as everything became slow-mo and Firefox as well as Dell Chat Quit. Now I have to reboot in order to be able to launch anything.

That is a confusing issue. I'm out of ideas, but hopefully someone will know the answer. I would be very interested to know how it comes out.

Have you tried using another browser? I personally use Chromium in Ubuntu. You could also try Ubuntu Forums here to see if anybody on there has had a similar issue.
It's nice to be important, it's much more important to be nice.

One other thought.......... open a terminal and enter TOP

See how much Mem: and Swap: are being used when it slows down and hangs.

Open a terminal and type:
grep firefox .xsession-errors
[raw@morpheus ~]$ grep firefox .xsession-errors

Did you try C/P the command in a terminal? It worked fine for me.

Might mean no firefox errors are logged to .xsession-errors.
Might mean you have no .xsession-errors file.
If you want to know if it exists; in your terminal type:
cat .xsession-errors

Try these two and post back your results:
sudo grep ERR /var/log/messages
sudo grep -i firefox /var/log/messages

(dell-launcher:4913) GdkPixbuf-CRITICAL **: gdk_pixbuf_get_width: assertion 'pixbuf !=NULL' failed this shows up like 40 times and hen it says too much output, ignoring rest.

Ok First one got me into my username prompt. Yet it asked me for password first. It did not display any messages, and neither in the second case. Hey, how can I Just reinstall ubuntu? Is it possible that I got a virus? I doubt however, as I wasn't going anywhere suspicious.

I don't believe this is virus related.
I do NOT encourage or recommend anyone do this,but
i have a few live examples on my box right now.

Results:
Folders :2189
Files :29834
Packed :656
Infected files :4
Suspect files :2
Warnings :0
Identified viruses:2


From what i have been reading "GdkPixbuf-CRITICAL" seems to be related to corrupt themes.
Have you installed any new themes? can you revert to the original default theme?
Do you have libgdk-pixbuf2.0-dev installed? (i don't know how ubuntu manages packages...Synaptic??)
I don't think ubuntu uses RPM, but i'll post my example so you kinda get the idea:
[raw@morpheus ~]$ rpm -qa|grep pixbuf
libgdk-pixbuf2-0.22.0-15pclos2010
gdk-pixbuf-loaders-0.22.0-15pclos2010
libgdk_pixbuf2.0_0-2.18.5-2pclos2010
libgdk_pixbuf2.0_0-devel-2.18.5-2pclos2010
And one more suggestion, you can try to reinstall dell-launcher (from Synaptic?)
Sorry i'm not up on ubuntu, but i hope these help.

I recently changed the wallpaper, but that is all I did. I'll try to remove image at all if that is possible.
