Please refrain from using profane language in your posting, see the LQ Rules. People do realize that problems are frustrating, we've all been there. Further, being profane, pushy, or rude won't help because assistance here is purely voluntary by forum participators.

You should describe your system, manufacturer, model, or the details if it is a homemade system; such as motherboard, memory, etc. As much detail as you can give. Also whether or not the system has ever worked, for instance with Windows or a different operating system.

Ubuntu 12.04 has been out for a while and is pretty stable it is also an LTS version (Long Term Support). There are newer versions of Ubuntu, 14.04 is their current LTS.

Saying that you are "stuck" with it is not something most would agree with. This may be a temporary situation or one where you can't easily adopt changes of your distribution, but not technically a mandate in my (and probably most) people's opinions. Likely you can choose from a wide variety of many possible Linux distributions, and for that I'd suggest looking here. Yes, you would need a working system where you can download and then format a CD/DVD/USB thumbstick to be able to try out and then install a different distribution; however it is not an impossible task.

My thinking is that some recommended things to try are:
  1. Verify that the computer you have is a system which actually does work. Either via memory that it worked under Windows, or if you can find a Live Distribution of Linux to run and verify that it does boot properly and work
  2. Try to re-install Ubuntu 12.04 if that's your chosen OS; do not update it when you start, but instead use the default install and see if that works without flaws
  3. If you end up having problems with something specific like Firefox, well you've already reported that it just closes on you, perhaps detail the information about what sites you've visited and see if Firefox works with a different flow of sites. It should; however not just close on you.
