Description

When launching Mozilla, I get an error that prevents it from starting.  The 
error is 
"Could not initialze the browser's security component.  The most likely 
cause is problems with files in your browser's profile directory.  Please 
check that this directory has no read/write restrictions and your hard disk 
is not full or close to full."

I have no idea where the browser's profile directory lives, but if it's the 
directory where the application is or my ~/Library directory, it all has fine 
permissions that I can tell.  The disk is not full.  This error message does 
not help me fix the problem, unfortunately.

I have fixed this by deleting my Library directory.  Mozilla starts up fine now.
