Suse 9.1 - Mozilla refuses to run after I've ran Thunderbird

Hey all, I like using Mozilla as my browser, and Thunderbird as my mail client, but I can't seem to work out why they both won't run.

At the moment, I am using the stock mozilla browser, and Thunderbird 0.7.1, installed into /usr/local/mozilla/thunderbird.

I ran Mozilla, then I ran Thunderbird, it ran fine. But after that, I cannot run Mozilla again, even if I close Thunderbird. If I reboot and run Mozilla, it runs fine, I can close it and open it to my hearts content, but as soon as I run Thunderbird, thats it, it no longer wants to run

If I right click a link in xchat, and go to open new mozilla, it opens fine, but trying to run the command 'mozilla %u', which is what the Mozilla icon in the k menu runs, refuses I cant seem to find the binary to link to it directly, is it in /usr/bin?

Any help would be much appreciated, pulling my hair out now

Hmm, seems wierd.
Is there any information you can show us by running thunderbird and then running mozilla from the command line?

Thunderbird runs fine if I run it from the command line.

Then, right after, I run mozilla, but nothing happens, it just goes back to the prompt, and the process isn't running if I take a look at the process list
