From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030115

Description of problem:
I don't know if this has anything to do with it but at the login screen I
selected KDE then logged in.  I downloaded and installed the latest java runtime
from Sun.  I then created a link for libjava* into the mozilla plugins directory.

After restarting Mozilla, I clicked on Edit, then selected Preferences.  The
popup menu does not go away.  The minimize widget works, but mozilla is
otherwise unresponsive.  When the minimized window is restored, the graphics
area is not refreshed.

I logged out and came back in under the Default desktop and the problem is still

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. I logged in with a KDE desktop, downloaded latest java from Sun, then linked
libjava* into mozilla plugins directory

3. Popup menu does not go away.  Can minimize window, but otherwise
unresponsive.  Graphics area does not refresh when minimized window is restored.

After a reboot, Edit->Preferences is working fine.  Don't know what happened to
break it, or to fix it.  Last night it was a repeatable fail; tonight it's a
repeatable working.

Marking as WORKSFORME since it's a problem I've never seen.
