Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

When I type "firefox --safe-mode" in the konsole, the Firefox GUI comes
up, but the icons for reload, stop, back, forward are greyed out and
don't do anything when I click on them.  Also, I can type a URL into the
text box, but when I hit enter, the browser does not go to any
website...its as though my keyboard input is being ignored, but it is
echoed on the screen.

If I Edit->Preferences and enter a URL for home, and then click the Home
icon, it does not go to that URL, but instead to a Mozilla related

This is true in some accounts on my computer.  In other accounts on the
same computer, Firefox works fine.

Yes, I tried moving the entire ~/.mozilla directory tree out of the way,
to no avail.

This is on Kubuntu 9.04 with firefox 3.0.14.

  Installed: 3.0.14+build2+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.9.04.1
