    Default Updates from factory for June 29: Firefox didn't start

    I did 'zypper dup' for 11.3 today and got lots of updates including Firefox. After a reboot, Firefox wouldn't start. I tried starting it from a terminal and got this:

    Code:
    Couldn't load XPCOM.
    I added the mozilla factory repo and updated from there. Firefox started with no problems after that. I think the xulrunner package is the problem. I haven't found any other problems from the update so far.

    this is also in 11.2 packages from the mozilla repository, and started with the update to 3.6.6. had to roll back to 3.5.9 from 11.2:Updates

    Which repo are you using for Mozilla? I have the same problem with 11.2 updating to Firefox 3.6.6 from the Mozilla repo //download.opensuse.org/repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_11.2/

    Is the only fix to roll all the way back to 3.5.9?

    That's the repo I used for 11.2. Do you have mozilla-xulrunner192-1.9.2.6-3.1?

    I also had this problem on 11.2 and rolled back to 3.5.9. There may be another approach, but I did not have the time to investigate.

    That could be due to many reasons. Different plugins, ... different libraries wrt other apps ... etc ...

    For me constrainted by time, rolling back was the simplist solution.

    Yes, mozilla-xulrunner192-1.9.2.6-3.1 is installed. I tried installing it from the factory repo but that wanted some dependencies I couldn't provide so I didn't take it further as I didn't want to start mixing factory packages with my 11.2.
