Latest Ubuntu


I am up on the latest Ubuntu, finally and have encountered only minor issues. I am trying to get to all my normal pages online, utilizing Firefox, however I am unable to get to Facebook. It shows it wants to crash when I attempt to login, anyone having the same problem and is there a fix?

Did you update said "latest" and what version Firefox plus does the box bounce in this flash link? (I.e: 11,2,202,310)

No bouncing, just an immediate box appearing and showing that it is a Mozilla Crash Reporter and to fill out any details that would help Mozilla recover from the problem

This is a new install, so what do I do, in order to ready the system for proper functionality?

Try updating Ubuntu: <programs> <utility> <terminal or counsel> then su or sudo
Code:
apt-get update
