    Spent from Weds morning until Thursday morning trying to element a glaring flaw!

    Simply put if I install the new fire fox which identifies as firefox+1 Uma Firefox goes to sh**. becomes semi-transparent so everything is garbled.

    What took so long was having to use my back up drive to restore a half dozen times While trying to figure out which of the many many updates was screwing up Firefox.Big surprise, it was Firefox.!

    Conclusion:

    If you don't install the new Firefox, everything else is mint solid.
    And the existing Firefox works fine.

    I would diffidently advice against installing the new firefox for Uma unless you have a good recent backup or you can figure out how to straighten Uma Firefox out.

    Firefox presents so badly I could not see to work within Firefox to find a solution.

    Oh!
    I had trouble accessing this new release or even seeing it.Update manager kept telling me that I had no internet connection.

    What I had to do was change my repository download sites.After doing that a new "Update manager" is offered. Take it. after it installs Uma becomes possible! ":O}
    Just keep tying them until you find one that works.

    I "think" that many repositories may have yet to update, but that's just a guess.

    BTW this was an update not a fresh install..
