    Re-boot your machine.

    First re-name your hidden user folder .mozilla to .mozilla_old
    Now try FF
    Does it work?

    What about Yast is it working: Software Management?
    Filter by Repository and select Updates from the list, those showing Blue text are Updates.

    In file browser, view hidden files
    under your /home/username look for .mozilla

    Hi,

    Is it just the autoupdater that doesn't work, or do you also have trouble with YaST and zypper?

    If you haven't already done so, try:
    Code:
    sudo zypper up
    If you were mid firefox update, that might be the cause of the firefox problem.

    If not, to rename .mozilla to .mozilla_old you could type:
    Code:
    mv .mozilla .mozilla_old
    and to check what hidden files/folders you have type:
    Code:
    ls -a

    Good luck,
    Barry.
