Mozilla, SUSE, AFU

SUSE's YaST Online Update has now hosed Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird on two machines: Bagend and my Dell D600 at work. If I launch them from the command line like "firefox &" I see that Gecko is segfaulting. I need to do some more googling to see if I can find a fix.

On Bagend, the Mozilla Suite 1.7.4 still seems to work ok but I'll have to verify that. I upgrade the suite to 1.7.7 via RPMs downloaded from, and now it's hosed, too.


I will note that this is the first time I've had any app stop working after running SUSE YOU. That said, it is a major problem when security updates kill your web browser or email client, much less both at the same time.
