Could we get output of the command

rpm -qa firefox\* xulrunner\*


Thank you
Comment 2 Neal Becker 2008-05-03 15:15:39 EDT
rpm -qa firefox\* xulrunner\*
Comment 3 Matěj Cepl 2008-05-03 15:37:20 EDT
How did you install firefox? This is really weird, because firefox hard depends
on the package xulrunner, which you don't have installed.

Install please package yum-utils and then run

package-cleanup --problems

and fix any problems it will report using yum.

If the problem persists, reopen the bug with additional information.
Comment 4 Neal Becker 2008-05-03 17:03:55 EDT
 I had installed fox3 under F8 from the test release (announced on one of the
fedora lists some time ago).  After a while this caused yum update problems,
so I was forced to do rpm -e --justdb to get things working again.  Probably
explains the problem.
Comment 5 Matěj Cepl 2008-05-03 18:03:47 EDT
Yeah, I suspected something like that -- packages you have just cannot work. I
think your computer is in the urgent need of package-cleanup --problems.
