No Firefox in openSUSE 11.3

I have installed openSUSE 11.3 duel boot with Vista and had no problems as the wireless connection and everything is working including Firefox. Next day I find Firefox will not come up after clicking on the icon which is pretty useless when the web browser is not available. All other things come up OK. I would be thankful if anyone can put me right on this.

What happens if you run Firefox from a terminal?

Could not find compatible GRE between version 1.9.2.6 and 1.9.2.6.

Is GRE an add-on? Try renaming your ~/.mozilla directory. See if Firefox launches after that.

mv ~/.mozilla ~/.mozilla-old

Better “firefox -safe-mode”

Thanks, I’d forgotten about that.

Firefox is now working, about 24 hours after installing I saw a red icon on the bottom bar, I had not seen this before and it was big enough so it had not been there until I saw it. I clicked on it as it was informing me of updates and I saw at least 2 were concerning Firefox with 17 in total and after the download was complete Firefox worked and is still working.

Thank you all for the replies.
