Do you have to be a geek to use Ubuntu? I just loaded it on my rarely used computer, and can not get it to do anything. Are web pages supposed to show up like in Windows? Will it go to a home page that you choose? Right now, I am getting messages that I need to install add-ons, but it will not accept them. I can't even figure out how to get out of it without doing a hard shut down. Calling it a night, be less frustrating tommorrow night.

I use Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and will tell what I can.
You don't have to be a geek but a certain level of competence won't hurt.
Fire fox is the default browser so if you have ever used that it is much like Firefox for XP -Windows 7 .
You probably need some updates and add ons. To accept addons or any changes to your system, you need to accept them via your pass word. I would do the up dates first then add ons. To shut down, curser to top right corned and click on your name , drop down menu will have shut down for and option. I don't have a customized home page but am fairly sure you can have one. Curser to the top and click on help, that might get you something.

Maybe you have not done this yet.
Get to Ubuntu,
on left side click on FireFox web browser
On top of page click on help and from drop down menu click on "about firefox.
This will tell you what version Firefox you have. Should be at least 19.0. Windows version is 19.04 right now. See if this helps.
In the future you can download Google chrome for browser that works with Ubuntu. Right now you have unity interface (ubuntu 12.04 LTS) but gnome is an option. I have both . So far I can't determine which I like best.
