Requiring constant System Restarts to regain that capability.

Use nautilus to browse files, not FIrefox

If the Icon on the Unity Launchbar marked 'Files' is called 'nautilus' Then That Is Precisely What the Newest Incarnation of Firefox is DISABLING from functioning!!

What happens if you experience this firefox problem, then open a terminal window and issue the command

nautilus

?

Furthermore, for diagnostic purposes, what is the output of the commands
uname -a
lsb_release -crid
apt-cache policy firefox nautilus
df -h | grep '^/dev/'
free -m

Can you help with this problem?
