(I hope I selected the right component...)

I just downloaded and installed 1.0rc2 (mozilla org rh-7.x binary rpms), and
after starting mozilla, I found out the ctrl-n no longer does anything.
file->new->navigator window doesn't work either. 1.0rc1 was fine and all I did
in between was rpm -Fvh mozilla*. (I was meaning to see if window creation had
got quicker between rc1->rc2... :) I tried changing theme, but that didn't help.
ctrl-r does work.

wfm v1.0 rc2 b2002051006 win98

but check duplicated (?) bug 143726
Can you try a new profile ?
run "mozilla -profilemanager" and create an additional tets profile
If you have thrid-party Themes installed, can you please uninstall all
third-aprty Themes and restart mozilla ?

Uninstalling the 3rd party themes fixed it for my original profile as well.
(Although it mozilla did crash uninstalling pinball theme (see bug #143835))
bad Theme -> wfm

I have no problems with my installed pinnball (latest version)

Note that I was using the 'classic' theme when I first noticed this. I had
'wood' and 'small mozilla' installed, but not in use. I then tried installing
new theme ('pinball', which led to #143710), but that didn't help.

It is true that uninstalling all the 3rd party themes seemed to cure the
problem, but how -- that's not immeadiately obviuos for me...
