    Default FireFox Browser Does NOT Work For Me??


    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?

    You need to run the command "firefox" in konsole. Konsole will report
    any problems it encounters trying to launch firefox.

    kevin@linux-b8pd:~> firefox
    *** nss-shared-helper: Shared database disabled (set NSS_USE_SHARED_DB
    to enable).
    kevin@linux-b8pd:~> su
    PasswordXXXXXX


    kevin@linux-b8pd:~> firefox
    *** nss-shared-helper: Shared database disabled (set NSS_USE_SHARED_DB
    to enable).
    kevin@linux-b8pd:~>


    I did just that. It attempted to run Firefox and was unable to. No
    change.

    This may be of some use:

    You need to import the Mozilla repo in Yast and update your version of
    firefox to 3.0.6. I'm not saying this will fix your problem, but
    updating does sometimes fix problems in previous builds.

    In that link the following was suggested...

    "If you add the following to ~/.profile

    Code:
    export NSS_USE_SHARED_DB=enabled"

    Add to profile? You mean in terminal right?

    I don't know exactly where that line goes. Your best bet is to go to the
    mozilla development forums and ask there. As they write firefox, they
    are sure to know:

    Hi
    That is correct open via vi or kedit/gedit the file in your home
    directory called .profile
