Firefox Suddenly Broken?

Hi I am running openSUSE 12.1 as follows:-
OS: Linux 3.1.10-1.16-desktop x86_64
System: openSUSE 12.1 (x86_64)
KDE: 4.7.2 (4.7.2) “release 5”
My default browser is firefox and it appears I have version 15 installed from the openSUSE repo site. I say appears as I have no recollection of installing this version so it must have been an auto update.

Whatever, it is now well and truly broken. Uninstalling and re-installing seems to have cleared the problem, possibly due to add-ons? Does anybody else know anything about this?

firefox updates flow via the update repo which you access via ‘zypper
up’, ‘zypper patch’, apper/packagekit, or YaST Online Update…

and, since firefox began releasing a new version each month they come
quite often…if you wish to not install them it is up to you to look at
the updates offered and elect to not install them…many folks don’t
look, but (imho) should.
