i'd say make sure you're running the firefox from the direct binary, rather than one of the numerous wrapper scripts that are often used in secret. use a search tool to find the real binary, e.g "locate firefox" and you should find the real program. if this direct execution still fails, then you're not going to have much fun. run the binary inside of gdb, and you may well find it could be faultering when loading one certain library. A full local compilation is also a potential way to look at it, but that shouldn't be required if you can find a certain library that's causing it. see the gdb manpage for details of running programs through it, and looking at any backtraces.

i think it seems to be something wrong with the libraries.
this what happens when i run ./mozilla-bin
error while loading shared libraries: libmozjs.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I check my path it seems fine. i just dont get it..

where IS that file then? you might need to add that path to /etc/ld.so.conf and then run ldconfig. alternatively i might guess at the MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME setting, or whatever it was called. i'd head for ld.so.conf first though.

the path of "/usr/lib/mozilla-1.7" is in the ld.so.conf file, which the libmozjs.so resides.
i also : export MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME="/usr/lib/mozilla-1.7" at prompt but still no luck.
