I encountered same problem, Firefox doesn't want start.
It took some (not short) time but I've installed new Firefox-
successfully, without errors after all.
Unfortunately, I cannot start it now. It simply ends earlier then it starts.
Nothing happens:


I've started it as root and also tried another user but result is the same :(

Could someone help???

Thanks in advance.
