PREF_Cleanup() seems to be a message to indicate that Mozilla is exiting.
Here's a run on my system:
$ mozilla &
$ Setting content window
*** Pulling out the charset
Loading page specified via openDialog
Document http://www.netbsd.org/ loaded successfully
 Done mozilla
I don't think that you need to set any .Xdefaults.
In my case, I'd run previous versions of Mozilla, and initially had a
~/.mozilla/ directory. After it started to get a little flakey (it
stopped remembering web-pages that I'd been to; I couldn't see anyway to
reenable it), I deleted my ~/.mozilla/ directory/.
The next time I started Mozilla, I was greeted with a little ``creating a
user profile'' process. Among other things, it imported the preferences
from an existing ~/.netscape/ directory. An unlikely (but possible) thing
to try is to delete the ~/.mozilla/ directory that it created, and import
a ~/.netscape/ (if you haven't run Netscape on that account).
Other concerns: Mozilla uses a LOT of memory. (I think it runs up to just
over 50MB on my system (i386). At least, that's what top shows.) Also,
if it gets to PREF_Cleanup(), it's probably exiting. But if you don't see
that message, it may just be taking its time to start up. (It takes a
little while to bring up a window...)
I'm borthered that it seems to repeat itself. (``ProfileManager :
CreatenewProfile [...] ProfileManager : CreateNewProfile [...]'') Was
that message (and the others about prfiles) actually printed twice from a
single run of Mozilla?
