Hi, I backup my notebook with rsync on my home system into /notebook/.
and, on my home system, I have created a symbolic
link /notebook/home/me/.mozilla to ~/.mozilla

This work from fc1 to fc12.

Now with firefox 3.6.3 included in f13 this method no longer work. 

When I sync the notebook folder an run firefox, it start only the first
time, then no longer start, if I run it from a terminal, it start and
exit without show any kind of error.

If instead I copy /notebook/home/me/.mozilla in ~/.mozilla,
firefox work fine.

Someone have some suggest?

It's a bug? 
I must report them? if yes, on fedora or mozilla?
