mozilla not starting...


well, I installed blackdown java, and it worked.. next time I restarted the PC, Mozilla will not start..

Galeon is the only other browser installed, and it now causes a seg fault..

Even from a shell, issuing the command 'mozilla' does nothing..

however if i go into /usr/lib/mozilla-1.3.1 and run run-mozilla.sh, it works.. what gives?

I enountered the same question in mozilla 1.4, it looks like a bug in the startup of mozilla.
I think there are two ways to start up mozilla, either in mozilla or run-mozilla.sh command. The full path method works for mozilla, but not for run-mozilla.sh. I just fixed this problem by adding an icon in start menu with command line "/usr/.../mozilla". (... is the installation location).
Good luck.

thanks for the reply..


I tried making a new launcher for it, but with just mozilla on the command line, it cannot find it.. if I use mozilla-bin, it wont work.. so for now I seem to have to open a terminal and run the script by hand..

If you give the full path to "mozilla", it will work, at least for me. Like
user@host$/usr/.../mozilla

I mean you type like /usr/local/mozilla/mozilla under the prompt, it should work. Or make sure your $PATH is including this dir.
Well, I am a newbie, too. But I think this question is a little bit nonsense. You ought to sift the readme.txt or installation.txt for mozilla, then you might solve it easily without asking for others' help.
Good luck.

There's a similar thread at http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...threadid=72793

Basically, you need to let mozillla refresh you default config directory. Try this:

$ mv ~/.mozilla ~/mozilla-oldconfig

Then restart mozilla. It will install a new ~/.mozilla directory with the default preferences. Overwrite the default bookmarks.html file with your previous one from ~/mozilla-oldconfig.
