Comment 2 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-05-19 14:25:35 UTC
Well, it does start just fine here. Sorry but you'll have to provide some steps to actually reproduce the bug. Which firefox version? Is this www-client/mozilla-firefox or www-client/mozilla-firefox-bin? If the first one, can you reproduce it w/ mozilla-firefox-bin? Do you get any errors? Etc. etc. etc.
Comment 3 Armin Mohring 2007-05-19 15:35:38 UTC
It is version 2.0.0.3 of mozilla-firefox.


Comment 4 Armin Mohring 2007-05-19 15:36:44 UTC
I will report back with mozilla-firefox-bin.
