Opening firefox through the desktop icon will show the loading cursor, but a few seconds later it will stop loading and never open a firefox window. It is possible to load firefox from the terminal, but only in safe mode. I get the following error when attempting to load in terminal:
(process:26701): GLib-CRITICAL **:g_slice_set_config: assertion 'sys_page_size== 0' failed
I have found several pages suggesting the following will fix this problem:
chown -hR YOUR_USER .gnome2/ chown -hR YOUR_USER .gnome2_private/
however, this did not help, I got the following error:
chown: cannot access '.gnome2/': No such file or directory chown: cannot access '.gnome2/private': No such file or directory
Any suggestions? I have removed firefox and re-installed in terminal, but the same error still occurs.
