Below is the common error that I always have when I force my Firefox to close.

Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Firefox process, or restart your system.

You can’t fix it by log out from the system. You can only do 2 things, kill the Firefox process or restart your system. The second option will take a longer time, so let’s do the first one.

Open your Linux terminal (Applications>Accessories>Terminal) then type: ps ax | grep firefox.

You will see the PID number on the left side. PID is Program Identifier. The number can be different.

Have to have stop the process by kill the PID one by one.

Now, start your Firefox again. If you see the screen below mean the problem is fixed.

Another feature that I like from Virtual Box is ‘Full screen Mode‘. You can run another Operating System in Virtual Box as if that it is a real Operating system.
If it doesn’t work with your Virtual Box, probably you may have a problem with your display setting or card driver.

To change from ‘Normal Mode’ to ‘Full screen Mode’ in Virtual Box is very easy.
From main menu in Virtual Box, select File > Full Screen Mode.

What is Redtube? RedTube is the same like YouTube if you are familiar with it. The different is the content. The only videos that available in RedTube are for adult consumption.

In a computer world, I prefer the question ‘How?’ not ‘Why?’.

So, the question to me is “How I can do it?” not “Why I have to do this?”. That’s why there are so many solutions in the underground world.

The method to download RedTube movies is very simple. First, you have to find out the location of the FLV (Flash Video) files from RedTube then download it using your Download Manager. To find the FLV files, you need a tool. And as far as I know there is no special tools designed to download RedTube videos.

But, there is an online tool that you can use to find the FLV files from the RedTube. It’s ‘Download Red Tube Videos”. The web page address is www.downloadredtubevideos.com.

For Download Manager, I use “Gwget Download Manager”.

Step 1. Open www.downloadredtubevideos.com web site.


Step 2. Find RedTube FLV link.

Open www.redtube.com web site and choose any video that you want to download.

Sorry, I can’t post the page here. Then copy the video link, paste it in the Text Box (see sample below) then click ‘Get Video’ button.


Step 3. Copy the FLV video link.

After few seconds, you will see a new link ‘Click Here to download Videos!‘.

Copy the link.


Step 4. Download the FLV videos.

Open your Download Manager. If you use Gwget Download Manager, click ‘New’ button’. The link will be automatically copied to Gwget. Then click ‘OK’ button to proceed the process. You can repeat the steps to download the other FLV files.

Happy trying.

If you want to download the other porn websites, below are the links.
