Just remember that if you run strace you need to strace mozilla-bin, not
mozilla, which is a frontend script. You can look at the front end
script, it's plain english, and add arguments if you want. Sometimes
just the mozilla-bin will give you messages that the frontend script
On the other hand, it isn't unusual for such problems to be removed by
removing settings in prefs.js. In the home directory, somewhere under
.mozilla, will be prefs.js. Move it to a backup location, and start
mozilla...it'll automatically regenerate the file with defaults.
On a similar note, there is another file which can mess up, XUL.mfasl.
Move that to a backup spot if prefs.js doesn't work, and start mozilla
to regenerate it.
Before you start mozilla, if you've attempted starting it at all, be
sure to "killall -9 mozilla-bin" from the user login which is being used
to test with.
