Mozilla Firefox not working

I really don't know what happened to my Firefox browser. I was using it till yesterday but now it is not working(doesn't open up at all). I restarted my computer, re installed Firefox using yum and it went okay, but that also is making no difference. I tried running it from the terminal this is what i got:
Quote:
[rhnblk@RhnBlk bin]$ firefox
/usr/lib/firefox/firefox: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/xulrunner/libxul.so: undefined symbol: PR_SetCurrentThreadName
rpm -q gives this
Quote:
rpm -q firefox
firefox-16.0.1-1.fc16.i686
and because of this now I"m using konqueror which runs dead slow in my laptop.
please help

Code:
yum update nspr
This will fix the problem.

My guess, just before you put the computer to sleep mode, firefox was updated and when you started back up, it tried to open the updated firefox but ran into the nspr issue! Having said that, why nspr is not updated is beyond me!
