Two nights ago I updated from FF5 to FF8.
On running, get "Couldn't load XRE functions" error from XULRunner window.  That was it! Nothing more.
HP zd8000 series notebook
Windows XP Pro SP3
ZoneAlarm Extreme Security 10
Grateful for a solution, if any.

Apparently the problem is with the zone alarm settings.  See:Mozilla Support

Thanks.
Yes, can be started if Browser Virtualisation turned off but I would prefer to leave it on.

I guess you have to make the choice, XULRunner is the under pinning of Firefox, and whatever else comes out of Mozilla in the future is likely going to depend on it as well.  At least now you know why you had the problem.

Thanks.
Have just discovered that can turn off ZA Browser Virtualization, run FF8, then turn Browser Virt on again and have FF8 continuing to run.  Fine - but clumsy.
Would I be wasting my time if asking ZA for a way around this (in your opinion)?

I would let them know about the problem.  With popularity of FF, I would think that Zone Alarm will find a solution, and may already be working on one.  It is a competitive market place and the last thing they would want is to lose customers because they have a conflict with an important browser.
