Firefox silently discards all bookmark changes ∞
not a permissions issue
- go to your
/user/.mozilla/firefox/profile/and move all the bookmark-related stuff away.
go to bookmarks > organize bookmarks > import and backup > restore
- and pick one of your files from what you moved away.
Seems to work. Really REALLY bothers me that I silently lost all that work.
Extensions claim to be compatible but their .xpi was not updated ∞

Firefox3 crashes on YouTube ∞
Visiting any YouTube page crashes FireFox with:
The program 'firefox-bin' received an X Window System error. This probably reflects a bug in the program. The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'. (Details: serial 131 error_code 8 request_code 146 minor_code 3) (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously; that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it. To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
su nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf
then change this section:
Section "Extensions" Option "Composite" EndSection
# Section "Extensions" # Option "Composite" # EndSection
And restart X.
Problem2: Flash plays, but without sound.
This doesn't work:
su apt-get install pulseaudio

I ended up removing pulseaudio, restarting Firefox and it works now, with audio. Uh.
But it's version 7 for some reason. Strange.

export XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1 firefox3.real &
This does not work:
#!/bin/sh cd /usr/lib/firefox export XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1 nohup ./firefox>/dev/null&
I made a little thing to remind me:
echo export XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1 echo firefox3.real\
Then I copy-and-paste this to run Firefox.
However, there still seems to be an inconsistent issue with firefox showing up as a blank spot.
update: using Openbox I just set this statement in
