Summary0015062: Unable to start firefox: XML Parsing Error
DescriptionGetting this error when attempting to run Firefox:

XML Parsing Error: not well-formed
Location: chrome://browser/content/browser.xul
Line Number 2513, Column 2:

And firefox won't start.
Steps To ReproduceLaunch Firefox
Additional InformationI tried:
- Launching from command-line
- Deleting my profile directory
- Starting in safe mode
- Creating a brand new system user
- An earlier kernel version

This issue started following the first system restart after upgrading to Centos 7.5. However, Firefox works fine under Centos 7.5 on my laptop, so it's probably related to a hardware/driver issue specific to this desktop.

>uname -r
>rpm -q firefox

I am happy to report that as of the upgrade from kernel-3.10.0-862.6.3 to kernel-3.10.0-862.9.1 a couple of weeks ago, this issue is no longer occurring.
