    check out the permissions!

    Most likely you don't own your own .mozilla directory.

    Try this:

    $ cd
    $ ls -ld .mozilla

    If it is owned by root (most likely case if you ran Mozilla while under
    su), do the following:

    $ su
    # chown -R <username>:<group> .mozilla
    # exit
    $ mozilla

    The other possibility is that you have a Zombie mozilla process hanging
    around in the background and it's trying to create a new profile.
    Normally you'd get the profile manager if this happened though.

    Also, do you own the files inside of .mozilla? There are several
    directories in there. Chowning the whole thing might not be a bad idea
    regardless, just to rule out any ownership possibilities.
