Hello everyone, since I installed ubuntu last night,firefox ignores my prefrences, i have it set to open my homepage when i start firefox and have the homepage set to yahoo.com, but when i start firefox (and when necessarily telling it not to restore old session) it tries to open a page %u.com fails to load that %u.com page, so what is wrong and what can i do? Any ideas? thanks in advance
Did that, but still the same thing happens, i installed opera, and it opens the home page i designated there and the %u.com thing every time i start it. Thanks in advance and thanks for the help... but anything else i can try?
Try emtying the cache, and if that doesn't help, move all data in /home/kroekerhome/.mozilla/firefox/ to a different place, restart firefox and you'll see that your running a new profile, the copy back the content of the old profile (i.e. 51c7i2gm.default) to the new one.
I removed the %u from the starter command, and now it works correctly, and i did the same thing for opera, the starter command was opera %u, so i took the %u off of it, and it works correctly now too. thanks a lot.
