Problem with Firefox in SUSE


Hi all,
I've got a problem using Firefox in Open SUSE 10.1. I can't do the following:-
send Gmail emails
perform a search using Firefox's search bar
add things to basket in various sites
post messages to this forum - am using FC5 instead!!!!

I've read that there's a problem with IP6v and Mozilla, so I've edited my /etc/modprob.conf to have the following:-
alias net-pf-10 ipv6
install ipv6 /bin/true

and I've rebooted, but still no joy.

I also run FC5 on the same machine and it can do the above without a hitch.

Any suggestions are welcome.

Cheers, Steve.

Run firefox from the command line to see if you're getting any errors.

well,... why don't you make fedora your default boot system and leave suse behind after backing up your data?

@Linux~Powered
ye, that would help too I guess

Hi,
I ran Firefox from the command line, but I didn't get any messages when doing the steps in my original message.

And to answer vegetassj2's question... I've been using FC for a while now with no real complaints, but I've had a couple of frustrating problems recently (couldn't install IBM's WSAD and had a nightmare using Yum Extender) so I thought I'd try SUSE instead.

Thanks, Steve.

Some of those problems seem like they might be problems with java scripts. Take a look under preferences and content to see if these are unchecked.
