What movie is this image from? (Guy in colored shirt pointing at guy with hat and sunglasses.)

I saw it in a random comment thread with no context and it's really not important at all, but I'm sure I should know where it's from, and so my silly brain thinks this is important. :lol:

 

Edit:

Ha! TinEye and Know Your Meme solved the mystery. It's from Jurassic Park.

The guy on the right also voiced Al in Toy Story 2. Funny stuff.

Edit (because problem was "solved" more or less, and it only took 9 hours):

Apparently, the newest Firefox version(s) just don't work with my very old Linux version. I had to install an older version, restore the profiles (at least I had copied those before mindlessly experimenting), and tell Firefox that I would really really really like to use those profiles with the newly-installed old Firefox version, please. And make sure Firefox doesn't upgrade automatically.

Of course I'll need to fix this mess someday.

Also, today I learned: I'm mentally stable... as long as my browser works exactly as expected. -_-

Original post:

 

Where do I go to ask about problems with Firefox on Linux?

Is Reddit good for that? It looks complicated, but I guess it has a lot of users?

 

 

... In case someone here is an expert:

 

Firefox crashed when trying to play a video. The other two Firefox profiles (instances?) that were running did not crash. When I tried to restart Firefox to continue using the profile that crashed, it did not start anymore. Stupidly, I closed the other two profiles and tried again. It did not work, all I got was the "sorry, Firefox had a problem and closed" window. It doesn't even open the profile manager.

 

I found an old folder named "firefox.esr" and started the "firefox" that was in there. It worked. Stupidly (again), I closed it and tried to open it again, and it didn't work anymore.

 

I suspect both versions (the one I normally use and the ESR) automatically updated to some newer version that is broken somehow.

(My first thought was that the initial crash caused something to go wrong with the update, but then why would the ESR version be broken, too? So the initial crash might not have caused the problem, but only made it visible because it made me restart Firefox, which made it update to the non-working version.)

 

There was another old folder named "firefox.quantum" with another "firefox" in it, which I'm using now. (It says it's version 57.0.4, with a button "Restart to update Firefox", which probably means it will update automatically if I restart it, so I'm never ever closing this window. Great plan. Also of course I don't have my bookmarks, tabs, cookies, history and everything.)

 

All I could find so far on problems with the newest Firefox (73) is something named 0patch, but I think that's something on Windows. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/73.0/releasenotes/

For those taking part in the Dragon Cave Q&A that was happening in this thread, I've moved it to Tiny Little Questions over in Help. General Discussion is the place for all non-Dragon Cave discussions.

well, it might be a lil kinda weird, and i dont necessarily want a response. 

 

If at some point, humans invented a time machine, and we traveled to the past, there would be too much matter, as the universe is, in theory, at a constant amount of matter, and the time machine, for little amount of matter it would be, would make the universe collapse, and then would be no reason for traveling back, as we would already know what happened in the past, and that would have never happened, and... uh... it would be chaotic, bc then u never traveled and the universe didnt collapse, and, well, its confusing...

Then, if we traveled to the future, in the real time that passes for normal humans like us, the universe would have a "gap", from the time machine that left, and it would be, literally, void, maybe creating a black hole on earth?

 

PD: i have based on almost no real scientific facts, so its just a weird theory i figured out, so thats why i dont believe on time machines... and srry if my english is not perfect, im peruvian TwT

The Vulcan Science Directorate has concluded that time travel is impossible. I think they're right. (It's sad, though. I would really like to see a live triceratops.)
