firefox freeze


I've been running Ubuntu 8.04 for a couple of years. No problem...Today Firefox 3.019 lost bookmarks. Besides, it doesn't navigate off it's homepage: http://start.ubuntu.com/8.04/. The only feature still working is it's main address historical sites and does launch them. Quite puzzling...!!

Try another browser, like SeaMonkey, and see what it does.

I personally prefer The Monkey over The Fox. You can customize anything and it has better communication with the user (aka the one rolling the mouse).
