One day mozilla after start draws empty grey window without the ccontrols - only 
resizeble frame and window bar with window menu and buttons. This window can be 
closed or resized. 
If I start with "mail" icon in start menu - the same, but on gray window is ine 
vertical and one horisontal line - like "mail client" layout. no controls, no 
menus - nothing else.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

I did "mozilla -profilemanager" and create a new profile".
All the same. Only one differene i can see - window title changes to "getting 
ivolved with mozilla.org".

I can confirm this problem. Since downloading 0.9.8 I am not able to get 
beyond this initial "empty screen" (see attachment).

I have tried to delete my profile, and create a new one, but that did not 
solve the problem.

My roommate installed 0.9.9 and this happened to him after a few days. He
installed Moz and successfully ran it fewer than 10 times. Now, though, he gets
the splash screen and then the blank window.

He's running Windows 2000 Advanced Server. Build ID 2002031104.

I can also confrim this bug.  When updating from 0.9.9 to the daily builds it 
comes up with only a grey box with the title bar getting involved with 
mozilla.  no difference when opening with profile manager.

I am going to attempt to unistall and completely reinstall from scratch.

The box is a PIII celeron 600mhz, 64megs ram running Windows XP.

Ok..fooled around with the profile manager a little more.  Delted default and 
recreated.  This got me A grey box with a darker grey box inside of it on the 
left hand side.

I uninstalled and reinstalled Mozilla and this bug disappeared.  That is, no
more grey box with no controls.  In fact I'm happily writing this under it :)
