i have been using Linux since minix days (first PC Digital Group Z-80 in 1977) first Slackware, then Mandrake, Mandriva until i could no longer use KDE 3.5 then switched to Ubuntu 9.04, now Pardus.

1. when i close Firefox it seems to exit properly, but when i try to start it up again, a box pops up and says it is already running and i must stop the process or reboot.  i have to kill the process, and then Firefox will start.  i notice that there are a couple of zombie kmserver processes that i cant seem to kill.  i am using XMarks, adblock+ and StumbleUpon plugins in Firefox.

2. i have a DNS-323 NAS which works well in Dolphin.  However,

i cannot select it as a repository for downloads in Firefox, nor can i save or load images from Gimp or other graphics programs.  i think i need to mount it permanently in fstab using an smbfs filesystem.  In the Dlink forums a user has suggested this for Ubuntu, but when i put my setup in fstab, Pardus freezes during the boot process, and a hard boot and repair with an outside resource [system rescue CD] is required.  Other distros will exit the boot process and give you a command prompt so you can edit the fstab file.

Here   http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=7848.0     is the suggested entry for fstab:

//192.168.0.199/Pessoais /media/lua cifs guest,rw,uid=1000,gid=1000,nounix,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0

and here is how i modified for my setup (smb://192.168.1.119/Volume_1/      <- working in dolphin)

//192.168.1.119/Volume_1 /home/cmallam/dlink cifs guest,rw,uid=1000,gid=1000,nounix,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0

i am trying to mount the drive in a non-existant directory called dlink mounted under my home directory.  i am making the assumption that this subdirectory should not exist before fstab creates it and mounts the NAS there.

thanks for offering any insight into these two problems.

1. when i close Firefox it seems to exit properly,.............. XMarks, adblock+ and StumbleUpon plugins in Firefox.
1. Try if System Settings > Appearance >  GTK Styles and Fonts > GTK Styles > mark Use another style: Qt4 will do the trick?
2. And how about disabling the plugins? (maybe it's in the plugins)
........... called dlink mounted under my home directory. .......
Maybe mounting this in /mnt/... will do the trick?

ok, the gtk trick fixed Firefox, thanks.

turned out in order for the mounting of the NAS to the filesystem to succeed, the subdirectory had to exist ahead of time.  i also discovered that a simple control-c will allow the booting to continue after a failed mount in fstab.
