I've got OpenSUSE 11.0 running in VMWare Workstation 6.0. I've got Firefox 3.0.1 installed, and running in GNOME. Initially Firefox was running fine, but OpenSUSE freezed on me so I had to restart the VM. This happened a few times.

Now whenever I try to start Firefox, all I can see is there is constant disk I/O but Firefox never comes up. After 2 or 3 minutes, nothing happens so I had to kill it.

Has anyone come across this behaviour? How do I fix this? I hope I don't have to re-install the entire OS.
