mozilla-firefox didn't work


i logged into UML by root.
then i did:

UML:~# su --command="mozilla-firefox -CreateProfile 'mymy'" dav
Warning: $XPSERVERLIST not set and /etc/init.d/xprint not found;
printing will not work.
Please install the xprt-xxprt-xprintorg package
selected locale: en-US
UML:~#


but the 'mymy' Profile wasn't created in /home/dav/.firefox/. i'm sure that mozilla-firefox was installed on my UML, and the directory "/home/dav/.firefox/" does exist. what's the problem??

sorry, there was a typo in my previous post. the 'mymy' should be 'Default User'



i logged into UML by root.
then i did:

UML:~# su --command="mozilla-firefox -CreateProfile 'Default User'" dav
Warning: $XPSERVERLIST not set and /etc/init.d/xprint not found;
printing will not work.
Please install the xprt-xxprt-xprintorg package
selected locale: en-US
UML:~#


but the 'Default User' Profile wasn't created in /home/dav/.firefox/. i'm sure that mozilla-firefox was installed on my UML, and the directory "/home/dav/.firefox/" does exist. what's the problem??

Start Firefox as user from console by typing /usr/local/firefox/firefox -P. It brings up a profile manger and you can create a new profile from. Dont forget, a given path is where Firefox installed in my system, yours may be different.
