Recent update broke Network connections

Asked by Kage

11.10 beta 1

A recent update made the default network manager not load, rendering any attempts at updates useless. I worked around this problem, with some troubleshooting, to missing the file inside /usr/lib directory. Copying the version inside the /usr/lib/firefox7.0 directory to /usr/lib is the specific workaround. Other issues have also arose, particulary the inability to run Google Chrome (current version at least) and no longer being able to use either Empathy or Pidgin to make a secure connection to Yahoo or AIM services.

My apologies if this is in the wrong place...

Its a reported bug already, you're about 15 hours behind the curve. If you download libnss3-3 from and install itwith dpkg then you will be ok. I downloaded libnss3_3.12.9+ckbi-1.82-0ubuntu5_i386.deb and installed it just fine.

Fixes the bug
