    Default New updates broke FF

    This morning i update the system, and FF was updated from 3.02 to 3.03. But after restarting it, it gives me this error:
    Error launching browser window:no XBL binding for browser
    The button is also not visible to close the msg dialog box.
    Anyone experience this?
    Thanks

    The problem is probably related to an extension.

    Your easiest solution might be to view hidden files in /home/username*
    find .mozilla/firefox
    and re-name to firefoxOLD

    when you start FF again it should create a new /firefox folder
    you can import settings from firefoxOLD gradually, or just start again

    I googled and got this
    Error launching browser window:no XBL binding for browser - Web Surfing

    Only it's dealing with a windows environment.

    Backup your bookmarks
    they are in here
    .mozilla/firefox/*some random number*.default
    bookmarks.html

    Uninstall FF
    Delete the firefox folder in .mozilla

    Re-install FF
    try again

    go to
    /home/mian/.
    and any folders .mozilla - rename as .OLDmozilla
    there must be a .mozilla folder

    when you start FF again is should be as though it was your first time running, it will ask if you want to import bookmarks, the the licemce agreement...

    You do understand what I mean when I say hidden /home (files and folders)??


    You must change normal settings in your file browser to view/show hidden files.

    You must have a folder for .mozilla
