Ubuntu browser problems

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I updated Ubuntu on a laptop last night, first update for 2 months or so. After the update, web browsers stopped working.

I had firefox, which stopped working. The internet connection is working, as I can browse package manager and install stuff. I think it's something to do with FF's proxy settings, but whether I click auto, or no proxy, it doesn't work.

So, to see if it was just FF, I installed Epiphany, which wouldn't connect either.

What's wrong?

you can ping things? If so try
Code:
sudo apt-get --reinstall firefox

I did say that FF is not the only problem, as Epiphany doesn't work either. Nevermind though, I just installed Windows over it, problem solved.

I'll stop this getting into a flame war, but will just say that I had a problem, and now longer have. I have never had problems with XP that I could not solve. Let's leave it at that please.

Well, let's see. You started a thread to get some help, didn't post enough info for anyone to be able to figure out what the problem might be, and instead of responding to people's requests for info, you just formatted and installed some other OS, all before most people even had a chance to find your thread!
