It's likely the Firefox program has a "dirty" file tag associated with it (falsely indicating file open or in use), possible due to an improper close or crash. Quit all open programs. Go to the administration or maintenance menu and open Disk Tools or Disk Utility or whatever equivalent name there is in your version of Linux. Select your primary hard disk and do a full file system check and repair on it. This should clean up any bad tags.

This could happen after your netbook crashed or turned off while Firefox was still running. When Firefox is running, it puts a file called "parent.lock" in your Firefox profile directory. If you delete that file, Firefox should start properly again.

I'm not sure exacly where the profile directory is on your system (I currently don't use Linpus Lite anymore), but it should be somewhere in your home directory in .firefox or .mozilla. Maybe this page could help you find it.

My Acer Aspire One netbook won't open any browsers (firefox or explorer). I've tried multiple ways of opening a browser and nothing happens... no error message or anything. I'm running Linux.


have you downloaded any thing recent? this may be the cause ......... all I can suggest is restore the systems far back as the beginning of December last year.......(when everything was probably running smooth)


good luck

1) Try the get software option, see if you can download some software. Anything will do just to test the function.

2) If that works ok, then its a problem with Firefox and not your internet connection.

3) If its a problem with Firefox, using the same function remove Firefox, reboot then re-ininstall.

4) If you can't download anything, then your network connection needs looking at.

Acer notebook aspire one linux will not connect to wi fi.


Hi I am Vortash I find that Linux is having a fair amount of problems at the moment , possibly because of the trend to drift towards beta programs and systems not sure , but it sounds like the program is corupt if it was windows the fix would be simple .. i would say re-eneter your wireless /lan / earthnet card .. drivers depending on how your connecting , and press repair connection .. I think I would go a simillar way here and re-install connections .. hope this helps Vortash
