linpus linux lite v1.0.6.e error message when starting firefox: ff already running


When starting the browser I get the following error message:

"firefox is already running, but is not responding. to open a new window, you must first close the existing firefox process, or restart your system.

I tried that several times, without results.

I have no knowledge of linux, working with an acer aspire one with
linpus linux lite v1.0.6.e
512 mb, 8 gb bios version: v0.3305

Can anyone indicate how I can fix this ?

Thanks in advance,
Rien

Go to your settings tab. Start system monitor. Find the Firefox entry and end it.

(This is true for Linpus Lite 0.9.4, I'm assuming it's the same on your version.)

Hope this helps.

I know this may sound a bit remedial, but try this.

When you go to launch Firefox, just use a single click, not a double click. The Linpus default is the single mouse click to launch programs. When or if you double click, you are attempting to launch the same program twice at the same time. This most likely is the cause of the error message.

I did duplicate this error message by double clicking, but program still launches as well as the error message.
