Had the same problem. Upgraded to mozilla-1.6-5 and the problem
persisted until I removed my ~/.mozilla directory and now it works fine.
Comment 2 jeff millar 2004-10-09 11:44:44 EDT
OK...since deleting the whole ~/.mozilla directory is very painful
(email, bookmarks, etc), what's the one magic file that will fix this?
Comment 3 Erik Niklas 2004-12-12 20:17:22 EST
I had this problem on a SuSE 9.1 machine running Mozilla 1.6-74.14.  I
removed only the ~/.mozilla/default/<id>/XUL.mfasl file and that fixed
the problem.

Please note that FC1 and FC2 are no longer supported even by Fedora Legacy, and
that FC3 and FC4 are supported by Fedora Legacy only for security issues. 
Please install a still supported version and retest.  If this still occurs on
FC3 or FC4 and is a security issue, please reopen the bug and assign it to that
version and Fedora Legacy.  If it still occurs on FC5, please reopen and assign
to the correct version.  

mozilla was removed from FC6, although the seamonkey application suite,
available from Fedora Extras, is derived from it.  Similar bugs may also be
present in firefox, so if the bug occurs with firefox in FC6, the bug should be
reassigned to FC6 and the firefox component.
