With most users I have problems starting Firefox and Thunderbird.
Lets say that user login to Linux box, first time ever. Starts Firefox.
Can change startpage and everything. Next time Firefox does not start. It
just "thinks"... Cursor is in "thinking" state, in taskbar you can see
Firefox name... But within ~10-15 seconds it stops, Firefox does not
start... Everything else works normally.

Same with Thunderbird. First time you can create account, read mails etc.
Next time Thunderbird does not start. When trying to run from xterm,
there are no error messages displayed.

With some users, everything seems to be working.

And with Mozilla the same problem occurs. But if Mozilla starts, it asks
for a new profile, because default "is in use". Although the user isn't
logged in in another machines...

I have removed/installed/updated these programs... Doesn't seem to help.
