Firefox wont load on aspire one linux it says already running close or restart, but it isnt running

On an acer aspire one firefox will not open. It thinks that firefox is already running and says close program or restart but retarting does not clear problem. Firefox is not running as far as I can make out by checking processes that are runnin. Not that good with linux though so dont know what else to check.

You need the instructions on this page: http://macles.blogspot.com/2008/07/installing-firefox-3-on-acer-aspire-one.html

It's brilliant - there's also a link for getting firefox 4 working (should you want to) on an Acer Aspire netbook.
