I have fc18 running on two computers x86_64 and i386
I first noticed the problem on the 64 bit system after a yum update
in the last few days.

I try to start firefox see the little timer circle but then nothing. I open a terminal
and kill the process which opens a dialog to restart firefox after which all is well,
until the next reboot.

The other computer i686 was updated yesterday and is now doing the same thing.
I would ignore this problem except that the i686 is being used by those who
do not know the shell so I would like to know if there is a fix.

I have noticed if I start firefox from a terminal window it comes up normally

Thanks
