It seems like you might be having permission issues. Try running Firefox as root and see if you get the same problem.

If that still doesn't work, I would suggest reinstalling it. If that doesn't work either, you could also try using a different source such as the tarball on mozilla.com

I could use IE7 on my Fedora system, have WT and IE6 installed and running to test web pages in and would be nice to use IE7 for testing as well.

So what is the secret to getting IE7 to run?

Better get yourself a good spyware/malware program also with IE7. They run great in wine.

Save yourself a lot of headaches!

Open YaST.
Go to the Software Section.
Click on 'Installation Source'
Add this repository as an FTP source to your list:
(server) ftp.gwdg.de
(directory) pub/linux/suse/ftp.suse.com/projects/mozilla/10.0
Be sure refresh is turned on for the source.

Now use the Software Management module in YaST and the latest Firefox release will be available in the repository. Just check the box, click accept, and let YaST do the worrying!

HTH,

J

/EDIT - Be sure to remove your blitzed manual installation first.

Should fortunatly not. Anyway Micro~1 seems to want it to run ONLY on windows xp 2.
See the difference in the name of the "product" :

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/...fault.mspx#ENC
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/ie7/default.mspx

There is one more word , you have to find it


Same for http://browser.netscape.com/ns8/download/sysreq.jsp , only for windows
Same for safari, only for macosX Tiger
...

When companies force you to use their last OS, there is always something bad hiding...

Konqueror is very good if you want a light/real standard www/secure browser

ps: for people asking questions about their firefox, create a new thread!

ah I forgot:
