Status in firefox package in Ubuntu:
OK, the reason I'm posting back here, running Lu 16.04 on an PPC
iBook, and MATE/XFCE 16.04 on a PM ST. . . did a dist-upgrade today,
so it now running the new "22" kernel and saw in the list of upgrades
new updates to FF and T-bird . . . on both machines after reboot FF
window frame loads . . . and then crashes . . . no data is ever filled
into the browser window.
The iBook error says it "doesn't have enough memory to report the
problem" . . . and on the PM . . . apparently it says the error report
was "corrupted" . . . no launchpad window opened in the browser when I
clicked on the "report the problem."
Tried to revert to the old kernel in the iBook several times,
seemingly failed to boot the old one . . . shut it down.
I went to the PM running 16.04 U-MATE and tried the same dist-upgrade
via console there, that upgrade was much larger than the Lu system,
but subsequently FF also then failed to launch w/o crashing . . .
installed Midori to make an apple user post, but when I tried to start
a new thread there Midori crashed as well.
I ran "apt-get -f install" in both the iBook & the PM . . . nothing
showed up. No "comment" in the terminal during the upgrade asking any
questions or reporting "problems" . . . but FF is kaput!!!!
I'm back in OSX 10.5 side until things cool down for the browsers in
16.04 PPC Lu & U-MATE/XFCE.
