I have been facing this problem since 0.9.6. It prevents me from using mozilla.

The HTML form elements ( edit boxex, check boxes, select list boxes, etc ) are 
not being rendered correctly. The windows for these boxes are not being created.

The options for a select box are simply listed as text.
I am not sure about this, but this may have started happening after I installed 
the mutzilla tabbed window plugin. I tried un-installing everything ( mozilla 
and mutzilla ) and reinstalling mozilla. But it has not changed anything,

Are you sure you do not have XBL from controls enabled?  I see that on alot of
form elements when I try out the XBL from controls.

Go to debug under preferences...and make sure the box is unchecked.

Page looks exactly like what one would expect if XBL form controls were on. 
Please reopen if the behavior continues after you turn them off in debug
preferences and restart the browser.
