FireFox Crashing on linux

February 2nd, 2010 by admin Leave a reply »

If firefox crash’s allot when using it on a Linux distro¬† try and do the following:

Enter this in your console:

sudo nano /etc/nsswitch.conf

And look for a line like this:

hosts: files mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] wins dns mdns4

Change it into

hosts: files mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] dns mdns4

Hopefully this stabilizes things.
