    Unhappy firefox won't start

    my firefox3 simply won't start on my 64-bit 11.1 mobo.
    I have tried installing several versions (3.4, 3.5, 3.6, 32 bits or 64 bits) and when I type "firefox" at a command line, I either get
    "Could not find compatible GRE between version 1.9.0.5 and 1.9.0.5" (see this post)
    or
    "Couldn't load XPCOM." (see this post)

    Help, I really need Firefox (don't we all?)!

    I think you have a conflict with mozilla-xulrunner.
    Go to yast and search for it and add all versions.'
    Also make sure you have the mozilla repo as suggested in the other post.

    And don't double post

    Thank you Geoff. I installed all the xulrunner packages. That did not solve the problem at first, but then I harmonized their versions (I noticed some were in 3.0.6, some in 3.0.5), and now Firefox 3.0.5 is up and running.

    In stead of wasting time making a new thread or post I thought I'd ask my question in an already existing thread that is directly related to my problem.

    I am running OpenSUSE 11.1 and while I can get Konqueror to work (it works quite well actually... ) I cannot, for the love of all that is good and holy (or unholy... ) get Firefox to work in my system ?!?!

    I am working with Firefox 3.04. Can someone help me?

    Starting a new thread is NOT wasting time.
