ah psm, another peice of software designed with the win98
no-security-whatsoever model.  you have to compile a fake wrapper
library that returns sucess when the lame psm code tries and open
files read-write that it shouldn't.   the wrapper is in the debian M18
mozilla package in /usr/share/doc/mozilla/psm-helper/  the
instructions for it are there as well.  

or you could just chmod -R 6777 /  to make mozilla happy.  [0]

[0] don't do this unless your insane.
