if you can't find the reason with launchpad quickly you could also use IBM Installation Manager(IM) based installation as alternative. The only disadvantage are 2 full downloads for the CLM repo and the IM installer for Linux.
Also with a separate IM  installation you can have a non GUI automated or silent installation as well.
This will allow for example to install CLM on a server without a X Window system.

HI Rene,

Thank you for your answer. Can you please tell me what I am looking for in terms of the CLM repo that I need, as well as how it links with Installation Manager? Can I get the repo from the Jazz downloads section, and if it's a specific file in a package, can you point it out for me?

Thank you,

 The install manager repo download link for 4.0.1 is

or you can go to
and check under "Installation Manager Repositories"

- Unzip the downloaded file
- Open IBM Installation Manager
- Click File>preferences, browse to downloaded folder and add repository.config
- Click install

Hi Guenter,

That's a very old version of FF. You'll want at least 3.5, and FF 10 ESR would be best. You can check out the System Requirements to get specifics.

Good luck,

oops, sorry, that's a typo: I installed FF 18 and 19.
any further ideas?

Has a solution to this problem been found? I am running into this problem with Firefox version 17.0.6

I attempted to export the BROWSER variable as suggested yet to no avail.
