Firefox conflict with libnss3?

Postby Tony G on Thu Jun 12, 2008 11:50 pm

I removed Firefox, but then decided to reinstall it. However, I now can't get it to launch (Terminal --> "Firefox" says it's not installed and recommends I install it, but when I type apt install firefox, it tells me it's installed). Also, despite it being installed, no icon is created in the menu. I'm running Darnya KDE CE.

In Adept, the one possible clue is that I appear to have a conflict within libnss3 (Under additional details, it says there a conflict there). However, removing libnss3 also uninstalls Pidgin, OpenOffice, and a few more applications I have yet to discover. Reinstalling Pidgin and OpenOffice, however, recreated the conflict in Firefox. :?: :?: :?:

Thanks for your tireless help,

Anthony

Let's suppose libnss3 is the culprit
Check which version you have and which version FF needs
You may have to install different version of libnss3

Libnss3-0d v. 3.11.5-3 is installed, as is libnss-mdns v. 0.10-0.1ubuntu1.
Firefox v. 2.0.14+2nobinonly-1mint1 is installed. When I launch a clean VBox install of Mint 4 KCE, it has the same versions of all three.

Reasonable hypothesis, Husse, but something odder seems afoot, doubtless caused by me:

I should have mentioned before that I attempted to manually install FF3 rc2 following the instructions here (substituting the right tarball name for FF rc2), but failed to get it to work prior to attempting to remove FF3 and reinstall FF2.

Thanks as always,

Anthony

Bump

Before I decide I can either live without FF and MintInstall or need to do a reinstall, I thought I'd give this a bump. :wink:

It looks as this would take too long to try to help you - I'm out of solutions and honestly I'm almost never in KDE - but I should....

Well shoot. If Husse can't help, I must have really broke it.:mrgreen:

That's what I get for installing something from the command-line, not fully understanding said CL.:| I'll wait until I really break a few more things (or I decide I need Elyssa KDE CE) before I get serious about a reinstall.

For what it's worth, simply untarring the FF3 tarball to /home works in a pinch, and I'll play around more once FF3 makes it to the Darnya repos.
