For some reason I cannot get firefox to start...
Here is the output of :
$ strace firefox (*)

I am sending this email from galeon so I don't think there is anything
wrong with my internet connection.

Thanks !
System: debian testing, 2.6.17-2-686,

$ firefox --version

I don't know how to read strace output, but I can suggest that you
attempt to start Firefox (FX) in safe mode:

$ firefox -safe-mode

This starts FX with the default theme and no extensions. It can be used
to determine if a problem is theme or extension related.

nice trick, but does not work for me :(. I tried all combinations of
- Reset toolbars/controls
- Reset bookmarks to Firefox defaults
- Reset all user preferences...

Join the support-firefox mailing list at lists.mozilla.org and ask about this there.

Also try the mozilla-zine knowledge base:


And consider creating a new profile and testing Firefox with that:
http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile . Under Linux, you'd create a new profile using "firefox -ProfileManager"
