when opening the brower, or attempting to open or customize the sidebar, I get
an  alert message that reads "The file /content/SideBarPanel.xul cannot be
found. Please check the location and try again."  Then I can hit OK and that is
it. The message almost always comes up twice in a row. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Opening the browser.
2.Closing and Reopening the Sidebar.

Actual Results:  
Alert message appears.  See above for details.

Expected Results:  
Just opened the sidebar panel?

I use AOL to connect to the web, if that is a problem.  I usually just connect
with AOL and then launch whichever browser I want to use.  I had Netscape 7.0.2
on this machine and the sidebar worked just fine.  I did unstall Netscape and
uninstall/reinstall Mozilla in a simple attempt at troubleshooting.  I'm just a
user trying to help if I can, so don't be to upset if this is a waste of your
time, just trying to contribute.

If I remove Buddy List from Sidebar, problem goes away.
