Firefox will not open at all


Everytime I click on Firefox web browser, the bar in the taskbar opens and then closes after ten seconds. I tried the web browser that FC7 comes with and it does the same thing. I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it. Still does not work. I have been using dillo for internet. Any help?

You might be able to get a meaningfull error message by running firefox in a terminal. Open a terminal and type in:

firefox

Also, deleting everything in ~/.mozilla/firefox would be a good start, usually uninstalling won't touch these files. Sometimes something in there gets corrupt and firefox decides not to work.
