firefox for aix troubles

Hi folks,

I don't post here much, I am more of a lurker Smilie

I have recently installed firefox for AIX on my IntelliStation POWER 185 workstation. I am currently running 6.1 with all latest updates (as of today) applied. All prerequisites for firefox installed successfully.

When I try to execute firefox under my account, nothing happens, just back to #. When I try to execute as root, just to test, I get (firefox-bin:450796): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:
or
/usr/mozilla/firefox/run-mozilla.sh[36]: 454904 Illegal instruction (coredump)

any ideas what is wrong, or at least where to look to find what is wrong?

Thanks,
Justin
