I'm afraid something I was doing in "Windows Firefox" has caused an issue with "Linux FF", but that is just a guess of course.  I've been doing a lot in Windows 7 lately and wonder if there is something that happened when I tried to Sync or something.  I did some research but found nothing that helped me.  I did find this command (firefox-unlock) but not even sure if that is a linux command.  I will post some of the .xsession-error I see that might be helpful.  I also ran "firefox" in Terminal and got this:

Are those firefox logs from Windows or linux??  Or were you trying to add a debian package to windows for some reason?

 

My bad those are gnome errors not necessarily a debian package.

Could not create gnome accelerators directory `/home/chris/.gnome2/accels': Permission denied

This part is a permission issue.

Try:
mkdir -p ~/.gnome2/accels

This will create the folders if they don't exist.

sudo chown -R chris:chris ~/.gnome2

This will make make the user "chris" the owner, and the group "chris" the owner.

Beyond that I don't know.

Thanks, I'll try that.  I'm also considering trying the 64bit version, anyone tried this yet?

Yes I'm running the 64 bit version of Firefox & Google Chrome on Windows, yet being this is a Linux Forum, is all I have to say about it, other than it's caused no issues with my Linux browsers. 

 

 

 

I'm afraid something I was doing in "Windows Firefox" has caused an issue 

 

If you feel that way, you should take this up in the appropriate Forum. We can't fix Windows issues on Linux, and the issue on Windows 7 may remain, even if fixed to run on Linux. This looks like the place to post. :)

That worked hollowface! 

 

I think I see what I did that caused the problem, well maybe.  I used Revo to Uninstall YahooToolBar in Windows7.  When I just opened FF in Linux, my Toolbar Search Box was blank, with a little Plus Sign in it asking me to choose a Search Engine.  I was hesitant removing the YahooToolBar and for good reason I think.  I think I need to get by browsers Synced to Sync also.  Does that make sense?  What I mean is: I don't Sync Bookmarks but I do Sync Passwords and maybe a few other things.  What I need is to make sure that all my add-ons and Sync Choices are the same to reduce any chances of conflict.

Glad to hear it was the Windows version. Might be showing my age, but i was an original dev 

on Yahoo Toolbar for Mozilla Firebird (pre Firefox)

 I was speaking of Linux.

 

Glad that you got it sorted out, yet as you probably know, the bit version of the Linux browser installed is the same as that of the OS. That's why 32 bit browsers won't install on 64 bit Linux, and it's great to have that extra layer of security. Only the 64 bit browser can take advantage of the extra protection that only a 64 bit CPU provides in it's instruction set, plus it's a generally faster browser. 

 

As for the Yahoo Toolbar, well I've never had one on Linux (nor Windows) installs, as these generally aren't allowed & not compatible with Linux OS's, for good reason. Plus a really good AV/IS suite may flag it as a PUP on Windows & ask to quarantine it, you may or may not have experienced this. Emsisoft Anti-Malware (free for 30 days) is known for hunting down & removing PUP's, and many toolbars are considered to be as such. Here's a good read on the issue, as it applies to Windows.

Hope your issues are solved, as far as the rest goes! :)

I find this all a little confusing, of course right.  I don't think it should have been removed, or at least in the way I did so (Revo).  I think it is just the little search box to the Right of the address bar in FF, that is inbuilt.  I probably chose Yahoo at one time because google was not a choice or something, sorry don't remember.  I'll just go with it and try to log any issues that I might have.

True, Yahoo is the default search engine of Firefox, though you can change that in Preferences > Search & add those of your choice & remove others (as Startpage & Amazon), from the same page, where you'll see a choice below to 'add more search engines' & will be redirected to Mint's home page. From there, read on down to Commercial Engines & just click onto one that you want, and then in the Search box, you'll see a green dot to the left, or color that matches your distro/theme. Click onto it, the choice to add that search engine will appear, just choose 'add *** Search' to Firefox. 

 

https://www.linuxmint.com/searchengines.php

 

Then you can go back to Preferences > Search & choose any that you've added as default. Today, Yahoo is a very unpopular choice, and for good reason, many of those in the 'Am I Infected' line either has the Yahoo Toolbar, or their email & have clicked onto a malicious link. Same with AOL to a lesser degree, neither of these corporations are that of 15 years back, when both were booming. Now they're in a position to have to accept ads from anyone willing to pay, and doesn't screen clients like Google, Microsoft & others does. Not that they too don't have bad links, it's just more widely known that Yahoo has, and while for a brief period it looked to be turning around under Melissa Mayer, who let things go right back to the dogs, and just hopped on board to collect a nice golden parachute, like the former CEO (Carly Fiorina) of HP did. 

 

 

Whatever you do, hope it turns out for the best! :)
