Hi:

On a suse 9.1 machine, here is what happens:

> sux
...
# firefox-installer

GUI installer runs; admin selects /opt/firefox as install location; installer completes successfully. Firefox runs automatically as root; closed by admin.

> /opt/firefox/firefox&
[1] 5655

At this point, the GUI "Import Wizard" shows, and I click "Next", "Finish". It goes away, then before the main Firefox app can display this happens:

anok@ting:~> Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: XDM authorization key matches an existing client!
(firefox-bin:5671): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:
[1]+ Exit 1 /opt/firefox/firefox

So I try this, which results in a mess:

anok@ting:~> xhost +local:localhost
non-network local connections being added to access control list
anok@ting:~> /opt/firefox/firefox&
[1] 5685
anok@ting:~> *** nsExtensionManager::_disableObsoleteExtensions - failure, catching exception so finalize window can close
*** loading the extensions datasource
...infinite times
*** loading the extensions datasource
Ctrl-C
*** loading the extensions datasource
...infinite times
*** loading the extensions datasource

This cannot be stopped, and after a few minutes finally results in:

anok@ting:~>

So that's it. I guess I won't be running the Firefox vanilla on this machine. Have to use a Suse customized version.
