Firefox and Epiphany crashes in FC5


Hi there!

I just installed FC5 for x86_64 with nVidia drivers from livna.org and all updates. Firefox starts and shows the default start page but then crashes very quickly. Epiphany doesn't even start up. When lauching from console, I get the following error:

Code:
LoadPlugin: failed to initialize shared library libXt.so [libXt.so: Kann die Shared-Object-Datei nicht öffnen: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden]
LoadPlugin: failed to initialize shared library libXext.so [libXext.so: Kann die Shared-Object-Datei nicht öffnen: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden]
Which basicaly means, that the library could not be found.

I think both problems are related. When doing "yum list libXext" or "yum list libXt" it says both libraries are installed (and both for x86_64 an i386).

Anybody else having that problem?
Thank's in advance!

Deleted my post since it can be considered as spreading FUD, although I haven't got a slightest intention to do that.

I apologize from the 32 viewers who had seen my post.

Firefox starts and shows the default start page but then crashes very quickly.
If you execute "/sbin/ldconfig -p | grep libXt.so" does it show?
Is this Firefox from an FC5 installer disk or repo or rpm/tarball from mozilla.org?
If you have any plugins loaded (Java, Flash, whatever else), does disabling (temporarily renaming directories and starting with a clean, plugin-less profile) help?



@chief_officer: Fedora users need to accept the trade-off between having a stable system and having access to bleeding edge. Can you support the claims you made? (please only post URI's). If you can't I'll have to conclude you're just spreading FUD.

Decleration from Red Hat before Fedora Core 1 was released:

Fedora will not undergo the rigorous testing or application certification process that is done for Enterprise Linux.
Regarding the test releases being more stable than the final releases, frankly I can't document that. This is our experience with my friends when we were testing the releases, not anything else.

OK. Read the article, thanks. This only relevant in comparison with to RHEL though.

Yes, I'd thought that'd be the case. If not one would wonder what the purpose is of them still releasing new ones.
