Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox


I've got a problem with firefox ( on a clean kubuntu feisty install.
Firefox does not start on my machine. When i start it from the console nothing happens, i get no output and firefox does not appear, it just hangs until i kill the process.
What i have tried:
* rm -r ~/.mozilla/*     -> now it shows the import wizard before hanging
* firefox -safe-mode  -> does not help
* sudo rm /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/*   -> does not help
* sudo aptitude reinstall mozilla-firefox firefox  -> does not help
* strace firefox -> i will attach the output
