Is anybody else experiencing this? I emerged the latest version of mozilla (1.7.3, marked "stable" for ppc) and get random crashes after ~30 seconds of use; most of the time when I'm clicking a link (is there any crash log that I could look at?). I reemerged twice and did prelink -a, but that didn't help. At the same time, the Gnome Web Browser doesn't even start anymore; when I pick it from the menu, it says "starting Web Browser," then disappears. I guess mozilla and Web Browser share the same engine, so this is really just one error. Is anybody working succesfully with mozilla 1.7.3 on ppc?

You can start it from a console and see if there appear any messages.

Well, I wanted to be able to use the web, so I unmerged 1.7.3 and emerged 1.6.1-r1; mozilla works now. Epiphany, however, doesn't, I'll likely have to reemerge gnome... Thanks anyway!

If you upgraded from 1.6 to 1.7, you probably needed to remove your settings (~/.mozilla/). Most likely something in your profile was causing the crashes.
