mozilla launching problem


I downloaded Mozilla Firebird and it was working just fine, I set up networking with the windows computer on my network and directed the cups printer server and now.....

all of a sudden Firebird will no longer launch, heres what happens

you click on the laucher and it does the little swoop like the browser is launching but it doesn't

you click on the actual MozillaFirebird launcher in the directory you get this message: Run or Display? "MozillaFirebird" is a executable text file. do you want to run it or display its contents? it has 4 selectable options, they are: and the results are:

Display = it loads in text view mode to view the scripting and details
Run in terminal = terminal lauches then goes closes just as fast
cancel = it cancels
run = nothing happens, get a error beep

if i try to launch it directlly from console i get the error, no such file or directory, I can browse to the diectory "MozillaFirebird" but it claims that the file MozillaFirebird does not exist

i uninstallled and deleted profiles, reextracted and tried agian with the same results

I downloaded Mozilla 1.4 and installed it as well and get the same problem as firebird was having

the original mozilla 1.2.1 is the only one of the three that will launch

Hi, I am having the same problem, with mozilla 1.4 not starting, I had mozilla 1.0.2 which starts just fine, then I "upgraded" to mozilla 1.4 and it did not work.
Posted on 5 forums, but only got answer like "recompile, reinstall, etc.." nothing worked.

Finally, after a week when I tried everything I realized that I could try to move my profile (.mozilla directory) somewhere else and create a new one... et voila' !!
It worked..

Now, the point seems to be that in spite of the claims, importing a previous profile is still buggy in mozilla.. this is very very annoying.

Hope it will help you too..

thats just it...I removed everything, the directory and the profiles, ieven went so far ass to empty the trash just incase it could somehow find it there

this is what i got happening

this is what I get if I try to load Mozilla Firebird

[root@localhost root]# cd //home/stompinround/MozillaFirebird
[root@localhost MozillaFirebird]# MozillaFirebird
bash: MozillaFirebird: command not found

this is what happens with Mozilla 1.4

[root@localhost root]# cd //usr/local/Mozilla1.4
[root@localhost Mozilla1.4]# mozilla
bash: mozilla: command not found

and 1.2.1 launches as follows

[root@localhost MozillaFirebird]# cd //usr/local/mozilla
[root@localhost mozilla]# mozilla

really funny thing is....i was using the firebird browser looking at howtos while setting access to the printer on my windows machine. I got it set up and browsed some more, looking around for a easy to set up DVD player. shut it down and went to bed, woke up the next morning and WTF!! it doesn't work

Warning: the current directory is not in the path by default in unix systems, try
[root@localhost root]# cd //home/stompinround/MozillaFirebird
[root@localhost MozillaFirebird]# ./MozillaFirebird

NOTE: there is ./ before the executable name

[root@localhost MozillaFirebird]# ./MozillaFirebird
//home/stompinround/MozillaFirebird/run-mozilla.sh: line 454: 2808 Floating point exception"$prog" ${1+"$@"}


this is what I get if I try that

Well, I am sorry but can't help with that.. it is clearly an error from FireBird.. try with a nightly build and keep finger crossed...
