Default Update Problem - 01-12-2009, 02:35 PM

I installed the automatic updates for my Mini Ubuntu, and after the restart my firefox had been completely reset. All my addons, themes, and bookmarks all disappeared.

Any suggestions on what to do? Or do I have to start from scratch.

After the restart, even my desktop theme was different. I checked to see if my user had been logged out, but I'm still logged in.

Black Mini 9, 16 gig SSD, 1 gig of RAM, 1.3mpx webcam, bluetooth, Windows XP

The changed desktop may be related to this: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1035645&page=2

Still working on whats going on.

EDIT: It appears the problem is limited to certain themes. Human theme is unaffected.

Had the same issue with Firefox and had to reset everything manually. I also had issues with Totem Movie Player. I had several movies in H264 format in a SDHC card that used to work great. After the update, the soundtrack is fine but no video, only a green background screen. I downloaded VLC and it works great, however I would still like to know why Totem Movie Player is no longer working after the update. Anyone else have this problem?

It seems like with every update my non dell repos give me less problems than the dell repos give everyone else.

Netbooks -> Mini 9 - 2gb Gskill low latency - Ubuntu 8.04
Asus Eee 701 4g - 1gb - Ubuntu 8.04.1
Desktops -> Phenom Quad @ 2.8 - 16gb - 4x Raptor X in RAID 0 - 2x 4870X2
Brisbane 1.9 @ 2.7 - 4gb - 80gb
Many others, all Linux.
