Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

In the default instalation of ubuntu 8.04, its all ok
I install nis + autofs (client) support for my users, here no bugs
and the firefox-3.0 dont work, the window open but dont load the pages
I remove the firefox-3.0 and install firefox-2 and work now

The autofs service is confiured in local machine using the local
auto.master and auto.home

here my nsswith.conf (i tink is here the cause)

# /etc/nsswitch.conf
# An example Name Service Switch config file. This file should be
# sorted with the most-used services at the beginning.
# The entry '[NOTFOUND=return]' means that the search for an
# entry should stop if the search in the previous entry turned
# up nothing. Note that if the search failed due to some other reason
# (like no NIS server responding) then the search continues with the
# next entry.
# Legal entries are:
#       compat                  Use compatibility setup
#       nisplus                 Use NIS+ (NIS version 3)
#       nis                     Use NIS (NIS version 2), also called YP
#       dns                     Use DNS (Domain Name Service)
#       files                   Use the local files
#       [NOTFOUND=return]       Stop searching if not found so far
# For more information, please read the  nsswitch.conf.5 manual page.
