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

Is easy and interesting that to make test to comfirm that is nor running
Also: 6.1 is beta version as can download ???
