mv ~/.mozilla/firefox ~/.mozilla/firefox_old

Then rerun

Personally I wouldn't waste any time on this as Maverick is EOL in April this year. I suggest you upgrade to a later release soon.

I figured I have 11.04 installed now and when my wife plays pogo icedtea6-plugin
makes firefox crash all the time just like the other distros.

Has some thing to do with firefox 10 I believe.

Thank You

OK actionparsnip I have ubuntu 11.10 installed and pogo worked while ff was only at 7 release.

Then after updating system and ff went up to 10 it made ff crash again and again.

I have icedtea6 installed.


Did me command help?

I reinstalled ubuntu 11.10 and did not update ff to 10. Left it at 7 release.

java works now.

I will stay there till they fix ff 10
