Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

Firefox was working just fine. A few days ago it just stopped working.
It was after some UBUNTU updates I think. I also updated KOMODO Editor.
After all of this firefox stopped working I had not history ,the back
errors did not work and the buttons were all grayed out. I found what
appeared to be a fix on the net. It said the rename places.sqlite and
the journal to a backup name. I did. rebooted the computer and now I
have the back button and some of the icons are ok. But when I start
firefox it reloads the last place I was and not my home page. Also I am
a web developer and I have code that was working properly but now it
runs but I no longer get the GUI I expect. Any ideas folks

UBUNTU 8.04 all updates current.
