Hm. That's different from the unstable situation.

I can think of two possibilities, right now:
1) there's already a mozilla running, but it takes so much time for it
to start properly that you're not aware it's there
2) the X server doesn't serve enough colors, or has other limitations

Just to rule out 2), could you ssh into your box with the '-X' option
set from a machine where you have an X server (but *no* mozilla)
running, and then run mozilla?
