A launcher is basically a .desktop file which you can find in ~/.local/share/applications/. Just delete it and the launcher is gone.
(/usr/share/applications/ contains launchers of other applications for all users.)
Also be sure to check [~/Desktop/] - this directory is also attached to Slingshot and [.desktop files] will be added to the launcher, too.
If you've installed Midori from the Software Center (or otherwise from the upstream Ubuntu repositories), you're running Midori 0.4.3. You can verify this by accessing the "About" dialog at the bottom of the gear menu.
The Midori that we build with Granite enabled is version 0.5.10. There's been a lot of work done in Midori regarding bookmarks between these ...
Try telling Midori to identify itself as Safari (or another supported browser):
Open the Menu (the gear icon in the top right)
Select the "Network" tab and choose "Safari" from the "Identify As" combobox.
Here's more info from the Midori FAQ.
This is a problem with glib-networking related to certain types of SSL certificates. It should be fixed in the next release of elementary OS or if we can determine that it is safe to update this package.
You can reach elementary.io through http instead of https. Just make sure to remove the "s" from the URL :)
Open up Terminal and do the following things:
Make sure you have the necessary dependencies to compile it. apt-get build-dep grabs almost everything from packaging, but you'll need to manually get WebKit2Gtk+
sudo apt-get build-dep midori-granite
sudo apt-get install libwebkit2gtk-4.0-dev
Branch Midori's source code from Launchpad:
bzr branch lp:midori
After trying other search engines and learning their syntax I was able to come across someone who had a similar issue on Ubuntu 12.04 and was able to fix it using
sudo dpkg --reconfigure --all
Which had me alter a few things like apache and ssl certs. After a reboot I don't seem to be having the issue anymore. I feel bad that I found the answer so soon ...
Go to settings --> preferences --> Extensions
Click on the configuration icon on right side, select preferences.
Also possible to go those sites and add even more block lists. But these two (EasyPrivacy and EasyList) should be enough to block most of the common ads.
I appears that Adobe have released a minor update that broke the link. The script on howtoelementaryos.org has been repaired, but it should be noted that it was written for Luna, and may not function correctly, if at all, on Freya distributions. You should also know that howtoelementaryos.org is not an official elementary OS site.
In the top right, click the Chrome menu
In the "Default browser" section, click Make Google Chrome the default browser.
If you don't see the button, Google Chrome is already your default browser. later try to restart your computer and go to System configuration > Aplications and check if the Chrome Browser appear in the list:
I think both Chrome and Firefox use PPAPI, the pepper flash plugin so could be a compatibility issue with that. I would try looking in ~/.xsession-errors or ~/.xsession-errors.old if you have had to reboot.
Also if you have an Intel display adapter then try enabling "sna" as the Acceleration Method, it fixes a lot of video issues with some Intel chipsets in ...
Midori is very about of date and old.The only solution is to install Chrome or Firefox or wait for elementary OS Loki (which should update it)
You can also try https://elementaryos.stackexchange.com/a/1185/3757 to update Midori
To find Midori for elementary OS Freya in Software Center you need to search for midori-granite, not midori. To install Midori Granite simply run the following command in the terminal and it will install the same Midori that comes with the elementary OS Freya.
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install midori-granite
I think the problem come here: https://www.youtube.com/html5
Midori is light but with less features then the services example youtube can't use extra feature (1080p videos example).
I choose (I'm sad about it because I like midori browser) Chrome for leave this problems back to me :)
I solved it by installing java and enabling java plug-in
Install jdk from here
Go to preferences --> extensions
Note: You can verify at: https://minecraft.net/
If java plugin not enabled: here
After enabling : here
I have found a similar (may be exact) bug here ibus/+bug.
Removing the /home/[user]/.config/ibus/bus solve the problem.
If still not solved, remove the ibus-unikey
sudo apt-get remove ibus-unikey
Also from comments you used sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-vn/ppa so you may get errors while running apt-get update So remove it by
It might have to do something with your hostfile as all browsers have this issue. You can open your hostfile by opening /etc/hosts.
sudo scratch-text-editor /etc/hosts
It should contain something like this:
127.0.1.1 <your pc name>
# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1 localhost ip6-localhost ip6-...
I think this is most likely an issue with glib-networking as reported in another related question about SSL handshakes failing.
Try doing a manual connection via the terminal next time this happens using the openssl command as shown below, then share the results.
openssl s_client -host mail.myzimbraserver.com -port 443
