From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.2; Linux) (KHTML, like Gecko)
Description of problem:
Neither clicking on the Browse the Internet Mozilla button in the panel nor typing 'mozilla' in the command line opens the browser for regular users, although it does work as root.
mozilla -debug provides the following:
INTERNAL ERROR on Browser End: No manager for initializing factory?
System error?:: Permission denied
permissions for /usr/bin/mozilla are
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 5799 Mar 12 15:17 /usr/bin/mozilla
as they were pre-upgrade from RH9.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. click panel button for mozilla or type mozilla in terminal window as regular user
Actual Results: mozilla failed to load as expected
Expected Results: mozilla loads as normal
Fedora Core 2 test 2 upgraded from RH9
Try uninstalling the java plugin. I suspect that's the plugin bailing
out. Did you change your user agent at some point?
I ended up doing a fresh install, and now it works. I installed the
latest java plugin from sun, so that may have been it.
I'm not sure about the user agent ... I've disabled SELinux for now
because I was having other problems with up2date, etc (reported
elsewhere). But mozilla works now, so te bug can be closed.
