Firefox will not load. Running Fedora 19. Click on icon. Clock comes up. 10 secs later, clocks and tool bar icon vanish.

Run it in a terminal and see what error you get.

After trying what @FranciscoD_ said above, try running firefox with an empty profile. Move your existing profile somewhere else (mv .mozilla/firefox .mozilla/firefox.backup) and then start firefox again. You could also try starting firefox in safe mode from the command-line (firefox -safe-mode).

Have you already made a reinstallation sudo yum reinstall firefox? Or try with the tar version that you can download on '' and install it somewhere (eg in /opt/).

Can you please update the question with the following outputs: rpm -qa firefox and rpm -qa xulrunner? There's no need to install the binary into /opt/. It works just fine here. Troubleshooting should fix this issue. Also try to run firefox -ProfileManager and see if it works. Also try firefox -safe-mode. Please update the question with these outputs. No need to keep commenting :)
