I think more information is needed. I take it you have just installed the operating system and the other software.

What is your operating system? Do you have your distro's version of Firefox and Thunderbird or have you downloaded them from Mozilla?

To my dim recollection, Outlook Express is only useable with that other operating system.

Edit: sorry, I was interrupted and posted prematurely. How are you trying to launch Firefox and what happens?

Dear Noranthon,
Thanks for your reply and interest to help me fix my linux problem.

1. No, our system runs fine initially but ran into these problem after we forward the ports for our IP cameras.

2. Our OS is linux knoppix. Firefox and thunderbird are downloaded from Mozilla.

3. We launch firefox via mozilla firefox web browser but it cutoff after sometime.

We contacted a linux technical support staff to come help us fix the problem but also failed.
We urgently need your expert advice.


Best regards,
richard lee

I regret having to disappoint you but I'm no expert. Similar threads here seem to have received little response and you may be better off posting in the Mozilla forum.

If you mean that Firefox fails to launch, that could be because the shortcut you are using does not have the correct path or because you do not have permission to execute the file. No doubt there are other possible explanations and neither of those seems likely.

If you know how to open a terminal or console, you could try launching Firefox with a command line. The simplest way is to type the full path, for example, /usr/bin/firefox. If Knoppix will allow that, you should get feedback which explains what happens.

On the printing issue, you may get some help from this page:
Firefox issues generally:

In your shoes, I would look for some general information about Knoppix in particular and Linux in general as it seems as though that's what you need. As always, there are many useful links in DistroWatch:
