I think there is something wrong with my Wine setup, but I don't know how to fix it or even what it is. Others have gotten this program to work without problems in Wine. This is the console output that I get from Wine before it crashes.

fixme:system:SetProcessDPIAware stub! fixme:dwmapi:DwmIsCompositionEnabled 0x33fcd4 fixme:iphlpapi:NotifyAddrChange (Handle 0xdfe994, overlapped 0xdfe978): stub fixme:ntdll:NtLockFile I/O completion on lock not implemented yet err:ole:CoGetClassObject class {591209c7-767b-42b2-9fba-44ee4615f2c7} not registered err:ole:CoGetClassObject class {591209c7-767b-42b2-9fba-44ee4615f2c7} not registered err:ole:CoGetClassObject no class object {591209c7-767b-42b2-9fba-44ee4615f2c7} could be created for context 0x3 fixme:resource:GetGuiResources (0xffffffff,0): stub

What could be the problem?

Edit: I tried removing wine wine directory so that it would auotomatically get recreated when trying to run firefox. Firefox still crashed, but new information was output:

Does anything in here make any sense?

I don't know the underlying problem, but you should try installing to a fresh ~/.wine directory.

mv ~/.wine ~/.wine.before_firefox_problem.bak

Then re-run Firefox. As soon as you run wine, it will create a new ~/.wine for itself. You can remove the old directory later if you don't need anything inside. It will contain anything related to what you previously did in wine.

I tried that, and it still crashed. I edited the post to show what it says before it crashes. – tony_sid Aug 4 '10 at 6:39

It looks to me like you have hit an unimplemented system call, meaning a Windows API call that's not (yet) implemented by Wine.

If you have installed the latest version of Wine, then your next stop should be in the Wine forums.
