cannot open Firefox when libmoon is installed
You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu
CLI/Mono Uploaders, which is subscribed to moon in ubuntu.

Status in “moon” package in Ubuntu: Confirmed

Bug description:
after installing Shockwave via mozplugger I deleted pluginreg.dat and tried to boot firefox. as opposed to auto-generating the file, firefox crashes. after running firefox in terminal noticed "user at SDF-1:~$ firefox
Attempting to load the system libmoon 
Segmentation fault (core dumped)"

proceeded to uninstall moon packages and firefox then behaves as intended.

after doing a clean install I attempted to recreate the bug without the presence of other non-default packages and proceeded to install moonlight and then deleted pluginreg.dat from firefox to the same results.

I am using the current 3/13/10 daily-build of lucid 64bit
I apologize for the lack of an apport bug report but it doesn't seem to be working right now.
