On my Linux server I had Mozilla working fine but made some adjustments - added sendmail and it seems to work fine except for a few tweaks and moved it to a new ISP - new T1.  My problem is that I cannot seem to get Mozilla to start now.  Not sure where the restart for program is as it will not restart from GNOME icon.  Any suggestions?

if that doesn't work download a newer version from mozilla.org (binary version) and run it from that.  I have had similar problems and it took a whole recompile to fix it (a little extreme) but the binary version always worked.

the command line will at least let you see what is erroring out.

The default Mozilla was not in /usr/local/mozilla/mozilla-bin.  I did a grep and could not find it.  So I ftp to the mozilla.org site and downloaded the tar    Easy install and works great.  Thanks for the help
