Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Everytime I run mozilla it opens a window and then closes right away. Thats about all I know. It just started doing that while I was at a google page looking browsing and hasn't worked since. Other users on the system don't have this problem. Just me. If there are error logs and such that I should be looking at, I don't know where they are.
I've tried deleting my .mozilla directory and starting over but the problem remains.
I haven't done anything wierd yet to my knowledge. I'm running a fresh, very standard redhat 8.0 install.
If anyone knows what this problem is or at least can help me troubleshoot it to find exactly what causes this and how to fix it, please let me know. Help would be greatly appreciated.
I think I did figure mine out though. The problem wasn't mozilla per se but I had misconfigured my network settings and the internal loopback address wouln't work correctly. I think you could use localhost to open ports to the local machine but using my own host name wouln't actually come back correctly. Mozilla didn't like that and didn't handle it well. Once I fixed that problem, the browser problem never showed up again. Though I didn't actually prove these two were related. I'll keep your suggestion in mind. =)
