Problem openning browser

Hello again everyone,

I have a problem openning galeon, mozilla and netscape when I'm not root, the error when trying to open galeon is :
Galeon failed to start.
Ensure the "MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME" environment variable is set to the correct Mozilla installation directory.

mozilla and netscape just won't open but they don't show any errors, when Im root each one works ok.

I've echoed the MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME var but it doesn't seem to have anything.

....Hope you can help me

while logged in as root (assuming it works there).

Then you should just have to set that to the same when logging in as a regular user; in /etc/bash.bashrc add the line:
export MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME="whatever you got from the echo"
