firefox stopped working!


My firefox worked alright before. It was only after I chgrp all files in firefox directory to "staff" that it started to fail to load all external (internet) pages. Changing them back to group root also had no avail.

So I would most appreciate if someone can shed some light on this matter.

Regards,
Wilson

Reinstall it, and don't mess with the groups again.
