I built it from FreeBSD ports. I'm running it on FreeBSD 4.10

Is there an update on this bug? I continue to get this error with Firefox 1.0.5 as 
The problem is, that only you got this problem !
I know a couple of people running their own builds from FreeBSD ports without
this problem. Something must be different in your build environment but what
exactly is impossible to say from here. You could probably manually add the
files that appear to be missing and I suspect you could get help with fixing
your build from http://forums.mozillazine.org/index.php

I have this problem with Firefox 1.0.6 as well. I tried removing the .mozilla/firefox/
<my profile identifier> directory and restarting firefox. It just exits with a 
Segmentation Fault! I will check with MozillaZine forums for help.

Any luck with this? I suspect that the freebsd ports work... have you tried them?

Thanks, like I mentioned, my firefox *is* built from ports. The problem persists :(
I should have been clearer... I was wonderring about the packages
ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/packages/www/ - if they don't have this
issue then it would narrow down the cause to either the build environment or the
src files supplied by the freebsd ports
I took the packaged build of Firefox 1.0.6 from freebsd ports, extracted the
files, replaced toolkit.jar and en-US.jar in a linux 1.0.6 build with the
freebsd ones I downloaded, and the extension manager worked as expected. The
extension manager js and xul code for the ui is in toolkit.jar and the locale
files that can cause these types of errors are in en-US.jar. Can you try doing
the same or using the packaged version of 1.0.6 from freebsd ports?
Reporter - have you tried what is stated in comment #10 ?
This is WFM using the FreeBSD ports from 

I suspect it is something in your build environment.
