At startup, I get a large message box reporting -------------------------- XML Parsing Error: xml processing instruction not at start of external entity Location: chrome://browser/content/browser.xul Line Number 1, Column 1: <command id="cmd_bm_newfolder" oncommand="goDoCommand('cmd_bm_newfolde ^ -------------------------- Tried complete uninstall (including removing /usr/lib/mozilla/ and ~/.mozilla folders after package uninstall) and re-install from package, to no avail. Using the quite shoddy Epiphany to submit this error report, hence I do not have the exact build version; version given is as retrieved from `firefox --version`, which still works; I just can't start the browser itself. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start Firefox. Actual Results: Error message as described. Expected Results: Firefox should start normally.
Is it official Firefox binary or Ubuntu package?
Ubuntu package; 1.0.8-0ubuntu5.04.1
Does this happen when you start in safe mode? http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_mode
Version: 1.5.0.x Branch → 1.0 Branch
