Description

15 years ago
build tested: mozilla.org xft-gtk2 20040615 (firefox 0.9) on SuSE 9.1 and Fedora
Core 1. DPIs tested 96, 108, 120, 132, 144.

To reproduce:
1-create a new user
2-untar the firefox build to a suitable directory in /usr/local
3-login as the new user
4-create a directory for the profile (e.g. /home/test/.firefox09)
5-create the profile directory (e.g. /home/test/firefox09/default)
6-run '/usr/local/firefox09/firefox -profilemanager'
7-select "create profile"
8-choose the previously created directory & profile name to complete the
creation process

Actual behavior:
1-an unclickably small portion of the Exit and Start Firefox buttons is visible
until you resize the window

Expected behavior:
1-the Exit and Start Firefox buttons are fully visible without resizing the window

screenshot - window after creating a profile

note these screenshots were made on SuSE 9.1 at 1280x960 on 144DPI, but the
difference at other tested DPI settings on Fedora Core 1 was minimal.

Changing from Linux to All, since this also happens on Win98 with 0.9.1 on a
system that never had FF installed before. After FF has been run and closed,
restarting with -profilemanager produces a suitably sized window without the
buttons cut off.

Note that I have never used any installer builds on any OS.

please note that, as detailed in bug 273415, this bug occurs when there isn't a
profiles.ini in the root profiles directory when firefox is started.

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008052906 Firefox/3.0

This is a problem in FF3RC2. Only seems to occur when first profile is created. Works fine for other profiles.
