mozilla does start, but doesnt show

When I start mozilla, it creates several threads but doesn't show any
window (nor galeon show anything).
When I tried same version (0.7-4) from RH rawhide, it works well (even with

Are you trying to run galeon and mozilla at the same time? What happens if you
make sure that all processes are dead ( galeon and mozilla ) and try starting
I'm not running two different browsers at the same time nor two different
versions of mozilla at the same time (I know how it handles this ...).
Between all of my tests I terminated/killed all of running threads/processes of
mozilla and I have also tried to restart X for sure ...
Mozilla 0.7-4 from Rawhide works.
(Mozilla 0.7-3 from Rawhide last week also worked).
Mozilla 0.7-4 from fisher doesn't. (I have upgraded to fisher today).

from blizzard's homepage at people.redhat- it works! But md5sums show that they
are same ... I don't understand that ...
I have never seen similar problems ... sorry for making false alarm, the problem
is probably somewhere else. (I think it's time to change STATUS of this "bug")
Strange. Maybe you had something left behind on the filesystem or something.
