One Click Updates, New Firefox Tabs in Chinese (Solved)
I was really frustrated with the update process in LD at first. The software center requires you to click on each upgrade. After installation I had more than one hundred. At first I went to the command line and used:
sudo apt-get upgrade
This solved the problem. Then it dawned on my that I could simply install update manager from the repos. Problem solved!
The problem with the new tabs in Firefox is due to an addon called Firefox Home Page 0.8.8. Simply go into Tools, Add-ons and click Disable. Restart Firefox and you will have your normal thumbnails without Chinese text.
Hope this helps anyone facing these issues.
Thanks, I only use chrome, but I will collect it
Is this the one listed as "update-manager GNOME application that manages apt updates"?
Does this replace / interfere with the Upgrades tab in Deepin?
I've found that clicking the left-hand box (Switch to navigation) on the right of the new tab page (under the search bar) works OK, though what I see depends on my NoScript settings. Another option is to edit about:config. Scroll down to and double-click “browser.newtab.url” and change the entry to e.g.
If I do that with Firefox Home Page 0.8.8 enabled it doesn't seem to work but it works nicely with Firefox Home Page 0.8.8 disabled. Users mileage may vary.
Another option might be to un-check "Automatic load in new blank tabs" in Firefox Home Page 0.8.8 preferences.
