From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; SunOS sun4u; en-US; rv:0.9.9+) Gecko/20020424 BuildID: 2002042422 Whenever I unpack the tar ball of mozilla and launch it for the first time everything is perfectly OK. But when I start it again after the initial launch the icons in the status bar to start applications like the messenger, address book, composer, etc. disappear. Also the menu items in the preferences dialog disappear to control mail & news preferences etc. The standard components belonging to the browser part are still there and accessible. The privacy item is there, but behaves strangely. When trying to unfold the submenu topics of it the triangle or +- indicator (depending on the theme) will switch without options coming up. This all applies to the indicated nightly build as well as to the RC1 for Solaris 8. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. delete /usr/local/mozilla directory 2. gtar xfvz mozilla-tarball.tar.gz 3. /usr/local/mozilla/mozilla 4. quit mozilla 5. restart mozilla and see the bug w/ every following start Actual Results: missing component launching icons and incomplete preferences menu Expected Results: completely functional GUI
This is a duplicate of bug 125489. All of the tasks show up correctly only the first time you use a particular build. There's a work around explained in bug 125489. Basically, you change the permissions on a file so it doesn't get corrupted. This bug should be fixed by mozilla 1.0. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 125489 ***

I am qa for the original bug that this dupes. That is a Networking:file bug, so you need to do your own verification for this fix. You might also want to look for the correct component for this bug (not sure where component reg goes).
