Bug Description

While testing iso http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/20110803.1/oneiric-desktop-amd64.iso on live persistent USB key, clicking on launcher's firefox icon does not start firefox.
I then opened terminal and typed firefox in it and got message: "Bus error (core dumped)" see image1.
I then tried to type ubuntu-bug firefox to report bug and got error in image2.

Today (15 august 2011) I downloaded this image: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/current/oneiric-desktop-amd64.iso, created a persistent usb key, but firefox works fine.
I do not have the previous image that had this problem (http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/20110803.1/oneiric-desktop-amd64.iso), let me know what I have to do.

Hi Carla,

I think it is safe to close this report, since you reported it is not reproducible with the ISO 20110815. Don't hesitate to reopen if you can still reproduce it with latest image and provide reproduction steps.

Thanks for your help to make Ubuntu better.
