Hey Adam!

Patch seem to be working but there is still a problem.
Make install does not put MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME in /usr/bin/exaile. If I add it manualy it seems to be ok, but crashes when you open next song.

Steps to reproduce:
Open Exaile, pick a song in playlist and right click to select Information.
Go to Artist tab and it opens ok.
Now, don't close information tab but click again on playlist.
Select another song and again right click for information.
Clicking on Album or Lyrics tab now causes Exaile to crash.

Attached is a terminal output.

It happens to me, too.

When I click on informations on a song, and the information tab is opened, it's all OK, but when I want to select an internet tab (artist, tablature etc), first time it freeze and I must to kill him, and second time, it closes with segmentation fault problem.

The crash is caused if the firefox is compiled without specifying the LIB_DIR option...
That bug (#157126) can be found here:

I installed the latest development version of exaile (0.2.12devel) from bazaar on my Gutsy x86_64 box.
When I ran checkinstall -D --install=no (used in place of make install), it concatenated MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME=/usr/lib/firefox to read MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME=
After editing the exaile file and pointing MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME to /usr/lib/firefox, clicking on Album, artist, worked great. No more dirty seg faults.

Note: The latest precompiled devel version (0.2.11-bzr1466) for x86 also does not have MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME= pointing to /usr/lib/firefox.. However, that is working fine on my Gutsy x86.

This is still happening to me with Gutsy 32bit and Exaile bzr v2.12b. Gutsy is fully updated. Do I read in the above that we need to compile FF rather than take the supported repository version to get Exaile to work. Not too happy to do that on such a exposed/vulnerable app as FF. Any ideas?
