Re: firefox & thunderbird both spontaneously crash since upgrading from F10 -> F11

I've spent the past hour googling, and found several others with the

with the error:

INTERNAL ERROR on Browser End: Could not get the JVM manager
System error?:: No such file or directory

I was able to work around the problem on thunderbird by doing what was
suggested here:

however, the same workaround doesn't apply to firefox.  What I've
tried on firefox (without improvement) is:
0) Remove the java plugin from /usr/lib/firefox/plugins (there is none
in my $HOME/.mozilla)
1) start up in --safe-mode (it still crashes)
2) delete my ~/.mozilla
3) remove&  reinstall the firefox RPM

If I download and install the 'official' firefox-3.5 package from the
Mozilla website, that one does not crash, an works fine.  So this
appears to be a bug in the fedora version.

Has anyone else run into this?
I also had a problem with both of them not working when I upgraded. So I re-installed both of them and moved the .mozilla and .thunderbird folders from the home directory to a temporary directory and the problem disappeared. Of course, this was after a lot of time and experiementing to find the problem. I find that the problem may be that Firefox 3.5 sometimes has a problem transitioning plugins and addons from previous versions.
