    Mozilla Profile


    In search for the most pleasing X desktop experience, I've been playing with Gnome and KDE and trying different web browsers. I went from Mozilla to Galeon to Konqueror without really feeling satisfied. Now when I try to go back to Mozilla, it prompts me to choose a profile. When I choose my listed profile and click 'Start Mozilla', nothing happens. I have to close the window and not use Mozilla.

    Any thoughts of what went wrong and how to fix it?

    Nope, haven't used Mozilla in at least a week or two (not that I know of ) and the system's been rebooted a couple of times since then as well. I'm pretty sure nothing else was in the 'task bar'.
    What else could cause it?

    try running mozilla from a terminal window, just running "mozilla" should do the trick. select your profile, then check the terminal window: do you get any error messages?

    Will try again later tonight. Stuck on Win2000 here at work.

    - edit - No go. Still get the same error. Mozilla just won't start up.
