      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

Firefox/mozilla security problem

Recommended Posts

After upgrading to the latest version of Firefix, I now get the following error when starting Firefox and Epiphany:



"Could not initialize the browsers security components. The most likely cause is problems with files in your browser's profile directory. Please check that this directory has no read/write restrictions..."



.mozilla in my /home directory has read write access for my account and my group's account.

Which version?

On some older FF versions you had to run it first time as root, and after that session it was possible to run the program as plain user.

Sounds very similar to a problem I had with Thunderbird recently (see here). That also appeared directly after a firefox update. Whether it was Mandriva's QA or Mozilla's/Firefox's I don't know, but the problem was fixed a couple of days later with a further firefox update.
