Hi Lev,

this also happens to me some days ago. It was caused by a change to the
real time loader (r262277 [1]) in CURRENT and is solved now (r262334 [2]).

So you have to update your base system to at least r262334 and
afterwards you should be able to use firefox, thunderbird and others again.

HTH and greetings,
