    Most likely not a virus, there are very few, if any, virii in the wild for Linux, more likely you need to install additional libraries,. It would help to know what version of Firefox and what version of openSUSE you are running. To check and see what's missing you might also try opening a console and try to start Firefox from there.

    What desktop manager are you using KDE, GNOME or another? It's so I can point you to a console.

    Open a terminal session within your graphical environment. You should get a command-line prompt like 'bash: ' or 'user@computer:~>'. Give the command 'firefox'. Changes are great that you will get an error message. That error message gives you the reason of failure.

    I hope this helps you better.

    Ok, go to your K menu under system and look for Konsole, open it and type Firefox in and post the results here, you CAN copy and paste from Konsole.

    Ok you need to install mozilla-xulrunner190 from the repos. Open YaST and do a search for it.
