WOW...just did the long update to 11.10. Glitchy to say the least but one problem does stand out right away...
When I tried to go to "trash" it opens up my Chrome Browser. Uh?
How do I OPEN and empty trash (thought that would be easy)...?

It sounds like you need to reinstall some. Which desktop are you using?

The interaction should go something like this... Place something in the trash. Right click the trash icon. A small popup should show up with three lines:
    1 item in trash
    Empty Trash
Left click on Empty Trash. A dialog asking "Empty all items from Trash?" should show up. Click on the "Empty Trash" button.
