Bug Description

Binary package hint: xulrunner-1.9.2

Problem:
Prism apps are not starting. Trying to start a prism app from a terminal e.g. prism-google-mail nothing happens, one or two seconds later the program closes without any message on the terminal.

After deleting the folder ~/.prism prism-google-mail starts normally, but after closing I have to delete the folder again to get it work.

After uninstalling gears everything works again normally.

xul-ext-gears, 0.5.36.0~svn3423+dfsg-0ubuntu1
