Mozilla - no xbl binding error


I running Mozilla 1.7.3 on FC2. Lately, i suddenly can't launch it anymore with a "no xbl binding for browser" error.

Googled and found this:
http://www.mozilla.org/products/fire...xtensions.html

On Unix:

1. Open a terminal, and cd to ~/.phoenix/
2. cd to the directory called default. (If you are using another Firefox profile, cd to the directory matching the name of the Firefox profile you are using.)
3. cd to the directory whose name contains a strange sequence of characters ending in .slt
4. Rename the directory chrome to something else by entering mv chrome chrome-backup
5. Close the terminal, and restart Firefox.


I followed the instructions - rename directory. Tried launching again, but to no avail.


Any solutions? Thanks in advance.

You could try killing x and restarting it, or even try rebooting to ensure the changes you've made have taken effect.
good luck.

Still stuck

I've tried that to no avail. I tried as user as well as root, but get the same results. Any other suggestions?

Was this an upgrade? Maybe a fresh install would get things working properly.
good luck.
