Firefox 22.214.171.124 about: and preferences do not work

Description of problem:
After updating from 126.96.36.199-1.fc5 to 188.8.131.52-1.fc5, several features of Firefox
stopped working or work in strange ways. For example, the menu item Help->About
Mozilla Firefox pops up a 1 pixel by 1 pixel window. It can be resized, but
dragging it larger shows that it is empty. Entering about:firefox in the URL
bar has the same effect. Entering about:plugins does nothing at all.
Also, when I tried to search for this bug, I went to the main bugzilla page and
typed in "firefox". I got a response stating that that is not a bug number and
so I figured maybe the upgrade did something weird to my settings. I selected
the Edit->Preferences menu to check. Nothing. I have js-1.5-6.fc5 installed,
if that matters.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade to firefox 184.108.40.206-1.fc5
2. Start firefox
3. Choose the Help->About Mozilla Firefox menu item
An extremely small window with no contents pops up.
Firefox should display its about page.
