Upgraded to Fedora 5, firefox fails to open?

I just used yum to upgrade from Fedora 4 to 5 now my firefox won't open? It says "starting firefox" then disappears never to open..? i am using Dillo for now. I tried to remove it then reinstall but it didn't help... any suggestions?

Open a terminal and type "firefox". Now watch to see if there are any error messages that could help. If you have no idea what they mean, you could either post back here or search/file it as a bug at


fc4, fc5, firefox
