Make sure you don't have any dead mozilla processes laying around --
close all your browsers and type "ps aux| grep mozilla" to be sure. (Or
netscape if applicable -- which are you using?). If you see some, kill
them with -9. That might fix the problem.
Also, you should be able to type "mozilla http://www.trilug.org" at the
command-line. Does that work to open browser with that URL? This has
got to be a fixable problem!
