  1. Can't use Epiphany


    During the start procedure (I click on the program's icon) I get two
    pop-up messages. The first one tells me that it seems like Epiphany wasn't
    turned off properly after it's last run: do I want to return to the state
    it was in last I used the browser? It dosen't matter if a say yes or no,
    then Epiphany says that it "can't initiate Mozilla" and dies.

    What should I do about this?

    I do not run Epiphany, so I can not point you to the correct file, but
    most likely there will be a file that wasn't deleted correctly.

    Perhaps you could open a terminal, run `epiphany` from there and see
    if you find some information. If not, you can always post the output
    here.

    I wonder where this file might be? I have, of course, tried to delete just
    about everything which have something to do with Epiphany i my /home. It
    didn't help.

    It gives me just no information at all. I have also done a strace, but the
    output is 1) very long, and 2) I can't interpret it correctly. Once
    Epiphany worked just fine -- but then I upgraded it using YaST, and since
    then it's broken.

    Here's some of the output from my strace:

    read(3, "-\1\0\0", 4) = 4
    write(3, "\24\0\6\0\221\0`\3\373\0\0\0\6\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\377\3 77\377"...,
    24) = 24read(3, 0xbfa82f9c, 32) = -1 EAGAIN (Resource
    temporarily unavailable)
    select(4, [3], NULL, NULL, NULL) = 1 (in [3])
    read(3, "\1 q\16\1\0\0\0\6\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\1\0\0\0\30\0\0\0\30\0 \0"..., 32)

    read(3, "\0\0\0\0", 4) = 4

    That is strange. Try `epifany --help` or the like to learn what the
    verbose version is.

    I can use the flag "--version" at least, which gives me the answer "Gnome
    epiphany 1.8.0". That's the version I try to use right now. But it seems
    useless to start Epiphany with, for example, "--g-fatal-warnings" since it
    dosen't report anything in the terminal. I haven't redirected standard
    error somewhere else; it should show up in the terminal.
