Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 76761
Mozilla "save as" dialog has no directories listed, crashes
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:47:57 EDT
Mozilla "save as" options no longer work: they pop up the file picker dialog
box, but no directories are available. You can get moz to crash by clicking on
"show hidden directories". This is mozilla-1.0.1-2.7.2.
To reproduce, pick a site (www.google.com), right click on the image, and
select "save image as ..."; you get the bad dialog box.
This also seems to be a config munge or some sort of version incompatibility;
this occurred only after I ran up2date this morning. Removing my ~/.mozilla
directory allows it to work properly. This may be the same bug as reported
in Debian Woody
I'll attach the gdb backtrace from the crash as well.

gdb backtrace of mozilla crash
Well, I did a binary replace on files in my .mozilla dir; apparently the
XUL.mfasl file is not completely compatible between upgrades. Deleting this
file seemed to fix the problem, so that's a possible workaround.
