uninstall/reinstall PM from xenialpup

Post by puppyX » 2019-12-03, 13:12

using xenialpup 7.5 but having issues using palemoon 28.7.2 32bit. browser keeps turning itself off. it started when i visited cuttingthroughthefog.com and now has become unreliable on other sites. should pm be uninstalled then reinstalled ? and if so how ?

i tried safe mode but it still shuts itself down mid browse.

--did it again when i opened a new tab--

I run the same os and have never seen such issues.How are you running palemoon.?.From a tarball and did you uninstall the version which came pre-installed with puppy.?

i didn't uninstall the version that was supplied with puppy. it has been upgraded with the updater in pm.
not using linux on a regular basis and don't even know what a tarball is ! running xenialpup from yumi with persistence, with a usb, thinkpad x60 without HD.

Try using a new profile (search the forum if you don't know how to do it.)
If it still crashes then it might need some more steps, but since I used Puppy Linux only once and for a short time I can't really help you.
