It's time...Swallow pride...ask question

n00b on Linux for about 3 months. I have it on two machines, desktop and laptop.

Laptop is running Red Hat 8.0. Every time I click on the icon to open Mozilla (that ugly little globe with the mouse around it) the laptop thinks on it a bit, opens up Mozilla, and displays the default Red Hat page for about a nano second then closes...shuts down... no surfing for you.

What the hell? I'm pulling my hair out here.

Any thoughts?

Open a terminal and type mozilla to open the app. Then, when it crashes, you should see error messages in the terminal. They should help.
