Firefox should startup correctly.
This is a machine that did a preupgrade from Fedora 13 x86_64 to Fedora 14 x86_64.
Same here, uninstalling xulrunner-python solved the problem for me.
Weird thing is that after installing the packet again, firefox worked fine.
May be something wrong with the preupgrade steps.
Same bug as in 639985.
