User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130 When I first installed Mozilla 1.2.1, as root, into /usr/local/mozilla, it installed correctly and executed correctly as root. After that, when I logged in as a regular user, I could not run mozilla. I found that the directory 'components' (/usr/loca/mozilla/components) has wrong directory permissions, without the executable flag set. After adding the executable flag, as root, I could run mozilla as a regular user correctly. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Just install mozilla as root 2.As root, executes mozilla correctly, all works fine... 3.As regular user, it doesn't works... Actual Results: As regular user, when typed the mozilla command, nothing happens, goes back to shell prompt. Expected Results: The installer should create the directories with proper permissions for both, root and regular users, run mozilla. I fixed the problem setting the executable flag of the directory 'components' after the installation.
How did you install? Installer? .tar.gz? RPM? .deb?
I installed from this file: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/releases/mozilla1.2.1/mozilla-i686-pc-linux-gnu-1.2.1-sea.tar.gz It's a .tar.gz file with a installer inside! :)
