Plugin Finder Service dialog doesn't display correctly or complete

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-GB; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050720 Fedora/1.0.6-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.6
Description of problem:
When I go to a page which asks to use a flash plugin, I click on the "Install Missing Plugins..." button, which brings up the Plugin Finder Service dialog.
However, this dialog does not seem to load properly (see attachment):
- some of the buttons are incomplete: the forward button doesn't contain an icon or label, and the cancel and back buttons are missing labels
- the cancel button does not close the dialog
- the next/forward button does not progress the plugin install
- the dialog can only be closed using the window manager close button
This is on a newly upgraded FC4 box (from FC3), with updates applied.
I've tried moving ~/.mozilla aside withouth success, and setting selinux to permissive. The problem still occurs if I run firefox as root.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to a page that requires a (flash) plugin
2. Click on the "Install Missing Plugins..." button
3. "Plugin Finder Service" dialog does not correctly display or complete

I don't have quite that problem, I get as far as it saying it is going to
download the plugin, but nothing ever happens after it says that.
I had to go to macromedia's web site, download the manual install tar file,
then poke around for a long time to dig up the /usr/lib/firefox-1.0.6
directory to tell it to install in before flash would work for me.
