That's odd. Did the permissions and ownership to your home directory change?

Not that I know. Did a fresh install, FF worked, did the updates for Mint 17 and FF will not work.
At that point I had not loaded anything into the OS other than the updates that were available through UM.

Well, it sure bugs me! :)
The errors in terminal are GLib, one GLib-CRITICAL and four GLib-GOBject-WARNING. I get the same errors when I run FF from terminal with sudo, but after the errors FF runs. To me, those errors are OS based, not browser based, but I may be wrong.

/RANT
It makes me angry having to blow off so much time dealing with this BS.
I guess that is the true cost of 'free' OSes and software, the users time.
Time is the most valuable thing a man has. I don't have the time to spend hours in the evenings and weekends, trying to fix problems that arose after doing a simple update, so that I have a fully functioning, smooth running unit.

I am actually very close to doing that, actually.
At least MS issues a fix for update errors in a day or two.

Do a recursive change owner on your home directory. Below example is for username "user" so adjust accordingly.
Code:
chown -R user ~user

I am at work, will check it out tonight. I didn't bring the 29 with me as it has no working browser.
Thanks.

Morgan, sorry you are having mintified problems....I also had an issue with 17 on the gun52, finally gave up. Currently flipped for the paid version of Zorin, after trying the free version of Zorin Lite...
http://zorin-os.com/premium.html
BTW, currently running Watt OS (microwatt) on the M-34 Jeff sent me, as well as the CF-28:
http://mylinuxbook.com/wattos-r8-ditche ... of-debian/
I found the download here:
http://www.planetwatt.com/pages/downloads

I'd try the lite version of zorin first, and see if things work better for you.
keep in touch
Cleve

Here is the output from terminal. Looks like it did its thing when I ran it the second time with sudo:

I will close out FF and see if it will run without sudo. Will report back soon.
