Thanks for the suggestion Sebastian, it doesn't work.
If I create a new user in /home/newone and run Firefox this will produce a new profile and will always work fine.
If I rename .mozilla to .mozillaX and create a link to .mozillaX with the name of .mozilla, Firefox will not work (start).
If I have my home on a seperate partition with a link in /home/linktomyuserstuff it also doesn't work.
One other person reported this strange behaviour in the forum but obviously isn't worried about it as he hasn't made a bug report, as far as I can see.
Can you try renaming .mozilla and making a link as described above and let me know if it works or not.
