should have mentioned that neither crashreporter nor talkback were coming up. 
Once in a while I get Gnome "Bug-Buddy" which fails to do anything useful. 
Seems like someone at RH tinkered with mozilla's crash handling....

Well I need my plugins to get work done so I installed the binary from 
mozilla.org in /opt/ and symlinked to that, seems to be better so far. This 
is what I used to do to get the latest version anyway, so if it works will 
just stay this way. If not I'll get on bugzilla and pursue that.
