Iím having a problem trying to get Firefox working properly. I have the tarball installed from Firefoxís site and am using Fedora 12 with KDE as the desktop environment. The problem is if I start Firefox normally, say, by just clicking on the firefox script, then the graphics will be rather crude; but when Firefox starts as soon as I log in (because Iíve configured it to auto-start) then the graphics will be nice and smooth. Iím having a hard time trying to find answers for this because Iím not exactly sure whatís happening? I think when it auto-starts as I log in, itíll use... well, this is the bit I havenít got a clue how to explain? Iíd guess one time it uses QT, and the other time itíll use GTK.
I donít know why itís doing this, and when itís started normally and I go to shutdown most of the time itíll come up with a crash report. There isnít any difference in the way Firefox is being opened, the auto-start calls upon the same script that my shortcut uses, which is the same as clicking on the firefox script in the firefox folder.
I have a few images attached to elucidate the problem. I understand I may not have made myself very clear, but Iím having a great deal of trouble understanding what precisely is going on.
Any help would be greatly appreciated because Firefox can seem a bit glitchy when the crude graphics are in use. Like the mouse-overs which leave traces of the box behind when you move the mouse away. So Iím having to logout then back in if Iíve happened to close Firefox and want to reopen it... Thank you for you time and patients.
