Firefox shuts down after first launch


I have a bit of a problem with Firefox. It shuts down the first time I start it in every session!

I have to start it one time after log in, wait for it to start up, and then see it shut down again. It just flashes a window and disappears. When I start it again it runs just fine.

Anyone else experiencing this? I had the same issue with version 1.5 on my old Mac, but I do not remember how I solved it.

Start it from the command line. Even if it behaves the same, you might get an error message.
