I've got this bug on FreeBSD, but I'm not sure if it is a FreeBSD-only bug or not. If I have an account (eg: john) which is not root with no ~/.mozilla yet and I want to complete Mozilla XPCOM/chrome registeration, I'd run 'sudo regxpcom' with some environment variables set. But on 1.0rc2 (not on 0.99), after running the regxpcom it also creates a ~/.mozilla directory which is empty and owner is root. So Mozilla couldn't start up for that user because it couldn't write to ~/.mozilla. I think this is a bug which should be solved before 1.0 release, or installing from FreeBSD ports will have problem.
access("/tmp/RXPC/.mozilla",0) = 0 (0x0) stat("/tmp/RXPC/.mozilla/plugins",0xbfbff1e8) ERR#2 'No such file or directory' stat("/tmp/RXPC/.mozilla/plugins",0xbfbff238) ERR#2 'No such file or directory' I thought that we had a bug about this. for 1.0 i'll probably relnote that you should not use sudo :) *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 52653 ***
