Firefox 3 Beta 2 on Ubuntu Gutsy

· Read in about 1 min · (153 words) ·

I’m having weird problems with firefox 3b2 on ubuntu gutsy - and as far as I can tell, I seem to be the only one. Did not find anything similar on ubuntu forums too.

Installed firefox 3 beta 2 from Mozilla to /usr/lib/firefox3b2 folder and created

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 27 2007-12-30 23:44 /usr/bin/firefox-3b2 -> /usr/lib/firefox3b2/firefox

When I launch firefox3b2, I get firefox alright, however, in the location bar if I type in a url and press Enter, nothing happens - absolutely nothing at all. I have to go and click the green arrow for the browser to open the URL. The search box is even weirder - neither the Enter key works nor does the mouse!

I’m at a loss - and nor can I find any similar experiences on forums etc - ideas welcome :D

*SOLVED 01/20:*Backed up my .mozilla folder and started firefox 3 b2 - no problems now :D
