    I had to delete my profile and create a new one. This sounds like a daunting task, but if you make a backup of the entire directory of your current profile, you can then copy all the information over your new and everything should be there.

    Hope that helps!

    fixed it.. solution here:

    xhost +localhost
    su - root
    export DISPLAY=localhost:0
    firefox
    (launched fine for root this time, close firefox)
    exit
    Then log out of KDE and log back into KDE..

    Thanks to the guys at the Yoper forum.
