Hi Matt,

Sorry its taken me so long to get back to you. I opened FF through a 
terminal, but nothing happens. I think its because the whole thing 
crashes so the terminal gets closed when I have to force close the hole 

Not sure what else I can do for this. My laptop is a crap laptop, it 
maybe that it just wont work in a VM, which is a shame because I quite 
like using it that way. I will keep trying though, to see if I can get 
it to work.
