I don't have a menubar (though there is a small square with a down-arrow in it (sorry, don't know what that control is called) where the menubar would normally be, which functions just like the controls on the other two bars). I don't even get a window when I right-click. ^T/^N doesn't work either I'm guessing this is a config issue because everything works fine if I run mozilla as root. This happened right after I tried to install Mouse Gesture Support which failed when trying to install as my normal user (couldn't install chrome).
Reporter: Can you attach a screenshot ? Possible it works again if you remove/rename the file "localstore.rdf" in your profile.
reporter- Did you install gestures as root? make sure you have permissions set correctly on the files it installed. I saw similar symptoms with googlebar a few times. I don't know if that would be a mozilla bug or a gestures bug.
Created attachment 89692 [details] Screenshot I tried rm -rf'ing /root/.mozilla and moving /usr/X11R6/.../localstore.rdf and US/localstore.rdf, still no luck. I did install gestures as root, and sure enough that's what broke things. I now have my menus back. Is this a bug with gestures or a bug with the installer? Overall, the install process is rather cumbersom for mozilla not being run as root; it's nice to be able to install only for my user, but I'd also like an easy way to install for everyone using root privledges (prefferably via something like sudo).

Summary: Menus no longer available → installing gestures as root left menus unavailable
Yes, rights problem. Files of mozgest are -r-------- root root Solution: # cd /opt/mozilla/mozilla/chrome # chmod -R go+r mozgest (change /opt/mozilla with you mozilla installation directory)
Hem. Sorry, read "/opt/mozilla/chrome" and not "/opt/mozilla/mozilla/chrome".
