Default Firefox 2 & 3 won't start in FreeBSD 6.2

I am not sure how to start troubleshooting firefox problems on one of my freebsd boxes (my webserver at home). I have installed the latest ports of firefox from both www/firefox and www/firefox-devel. I just cvsup'ed my ports tree earlier this week. Both the 'foxes' compile and install fine with no errors reported.

However, nothing happens when I try to start either one. Trying to start from the command prompt will just cause a momentary pause and then eventually nothing - I just get a new command prompt as if all I did was hit enter. No error messages anywhere.

The system is running FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE. System is a dell optiplex GX260, 2ghz P4 and 256mb ram.

I did try using the '--g-fatal-warnings' option when starting firefox, but that lead to the same result (nothing).

Any ideas on what to try next would be much appreciated.
