following update of Firefox to version 3.6.8-1.1.1 I was eventually forced to move back to version 3.5.11 to get it working again.
bouncing icon and spinning icon in toolbar for 10-20 seconds, then nothing.
Is there a special log file to be found for mozilla errors? (couldn’t find anything useful in or near /var/log/messages or warnings)
all dependencies of associated programmes seem to fulfil dependencies, but obviously something isn’t right.
Does anyone else have the same problem? Any ideas?
OS: Linux 184.108.40.206-0.2-defaultx86_64, KDE3.
System: openSUSE 11.1 (x86_64)
KDE: 3.5.10 release21.12.1
firefox files from repository “repo-update”
Have you tried a vanilla install. It may be some of you extensions are causing the problem. I had a similar problem some time ago and resolved it by renaming my Firefox folder, starting up a vanilla version and being slow and careful with extensions.
Starting from the command line may show the errors
for record, command line output was:
Could not find compatible GRE between version 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168.
despite having manually forced all old versions of xulrunner out of the system
