I run on fedora 13 x86_64. When starting firefox from a terminal, it immediately returns to the prompt without starting. Firefox does start in safe-mode. After exiting safe-mode, firefox starts normally, but only once. When I quit in normal mode, it does not want to start again (except in safe-mode).

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== after upgrade to F13

I had the same problem. I disabled all extensions and then enabled them one by one and tested it (make sure not to test in safe mode). For me it was firegesture that kept firefox from starting.

I had the same problem and "0" extensions on OpenSUSE 10.2... btw: with -profilemanager or -P firefox infinitely crash..

Thank you dworz. The culprit turned out to be the "gmail notifier" add-on. Without it, firefox starts as it should.

Cheers!
