Description

16 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624

after installing mozilla 1.4 as root, the installer automatically opens the
browser without problem.  if i then try to open mozilla not as root, i get an
error.  here's what happens from the install directory as my own login "claw":

[claw@byrd mozilla]$ ./mozilla
INTERNAL ERROR on Browser End: No manager for initializing factory?
 
System error?:: Success


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install browser only
2. type "./mozilla" in install directory

Actual Results:  
[claw@byrd mozilla]$ ./mozilla
INTERNAL ERROR on Browser End: No manager for initializing factory?
 
System error?:: Success


Expected Results:  
display browser window

i see the text in the README about first loading as root to create "files
required for later use by other users".  however, it doesn't matter if i load as
root or not; i always see this error message.  do i need to re-login?

this is a JRE plugin error.  You probably have it installed into your profile
directory.

Make sure you have the right plugin and that it is installed properly

This is about a wrong plugin library (non-gcc32) is used by mozilla. Please 
read the url in comment 1 for more detail.
