MOZ 0.93 does not start after installation. I downloaded the file from here: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/releases/mozilla0.9.3/mozilla-i686-pc-linux-gnu-0.9.3-installer.tar.gz and installed it using the "./mozilla-installer" After the installation mozilla started automaticaly and produced the following output: [tina@tina try]$ ./mozilla ./run-mozilla.sh ./mozilla-bin MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME=/usr/local/try LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/try:/usr/local/try/plugins:/usr/local/lib LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/try:/usr/local/try/components SHLIB_PATH=/usr/local/try LIBPATH=/usr/local/try ADDON_PATH=/usr/local/try MOZ_PROGRAM=./mozilla-bin MOZ_TOOLKIT= moz_debug=0 moz_debugger= I am inside the initialize Hey : You are in QFA Startup (QFA)Talkback error: Can't initialize. ------------------------------ That was it... no browser on my screen I am curently using Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.2) Gecko/20010628 which craches 1-2 times in 2-3 hours of constant usage.. only browsing the net
My second attempt was to download the whole package from here http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/releases/mozilla0.9.3/mozilla-i686-pc-linux-gnu-0.9.3-sea.tar.gz and YESSSS... after I dowloaded the complete package, I was able to start moz0.93. Please see the screen output, which fllows. You can see that the script complains about "current directory".. but it seems that it is not important.... mozilla 0.93 starts !! And this is important !!!

Reporter: Have you installed the first build over an older build and then you installed the second time in a fresh directory ?
nope ... both builds were fresh builds... that is the main reason why I have two directories , "try" and "mozilla_0.93" I did not want to install second build on top of the "try" build
From the repoter's earlier comments: The first install (try) failed while on user tina (not root). The second install (mozilla_0.93) suceeds on user root. This is then a dupe of bug 42184. Please read that bug for a few workarounds. (from the release notes) If you are installing Mozilla on a multi-user operating system such as Linux, Unix, or Windows 2000, you should install it separately in the user directory of each user who plans to use Mozilla . (Bug 42184) If you install Mozilla in a shared write-protected directory, it may not run properly. (Bug 42184) *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 42184 ***
Nope.. I think that your conclusion is not correct. Here is why: In both cases I have installed mozilla as "root".. otherwise I could not install it in "/usr/local". Yes, mozilla (from "try" directory) started automaticaly after installation and produced exactly the same result as couple minutes later when I have tried to start it as regular user (tina). "try" installation was done with the file ....../mozilla-i686-pc-linux-gnu-0.9.3-installer.tar.gz The working installation into directory "mozilla_0.93" was done with the file ..../mozilla-i686-pc-linux-gnu-0.9.3-sea.tar.gz I can run it as "root" or regular user "tina". IT WORKS in both cases. In both cases I installed mozilla in the directory "/usr/local".. therefore I was in both cases "root" during installation. In first case (try) I am not able to run mozilla as regular user tina or as root. So, I consider this a BUG and not as duplicate of some other bug.
Igor, I tried to reproduce this bug using your scenarios. 1. install using stub installer as root (which failed for you both as root and tina) last console message is talkback Can't initialize 2. install using tarball as root (and you were successful both as root and tina) Alas, I was successful in launching in both cases - no talkback error noted- it loaded ok. I am wondering if the problem is not the installer or user (root/tina) but the package itself did not get installed. Can you try 0.9.4 or a recent nightly please and see if it recurs? reopening- not sure it is dupe of 42184
This bug is about 0.9.3, we are close to 0.9.6, nobody can confirm the problem ---> WORKSFORME
