        More description needed. Anything interesting in
        /var/log/messages? Output any error message? GUI window froze
        or closed? Give us a hint.


    This is the part of output from /var/log/messages, when Firefox

    2.20.1), pid 2823 user 'lchris'

Not clear. You're using KDE or Gnome? I thought gconfd was a gnome thing, looks like this is from when you logged in. Or else for some reason firefox is causing gconfd to start again, which would sort of explain the error message, if not the real cause.

GUI window froze or closed?

Are you using any NFS mounts? I've had similar logs before, when trying to use an NFS mounted home directory. Something about my config sets gnome and NFS for murder.

Dave I'm not near the computer that causing this problem I'm going over there today and install NX on it so I can troubleshoot it from home, So I will get a better look at it then, and get back to you.

It is using KDE and the firefox GUI is just shutting down, disappearing .

I will be emailing you back later today.
