Firefox 2.0.4 Fails Since Update


I'm using Feisty and I updated Firefox to version 2.0.4 when it became available in the software channel and prompted me to do so. Now it won't start up when I click the shortcut or try to run it from the terminal. It tries to but then dies. Any ideas?

Thanks
Adam

Are there any error messages shown in the terminal when you try and run Firefox from there?

A couple of ppl in the sidux forum reported the same thing, todays d-u seemed to fix the problem.

I had it show up in the task bar then just close once, opened it from a terminal and it was fine. No problems at all since todays updates.

No idea what the problem might have been, although I am betting on yesterdays xorg update.

The output from the terminal is:
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
