When I browse to file://dirname/, the dirname directory it displayed as it should be. However, file:/// (the root directory on Linux) does not display at all- files or directories. This is not a read permission issue, since basically everything in root is world-readable. Latest nightly build (2000040409) but also present for at least the past several days.

Odd. In an earlier, FIXED bug, bug 6936, "NECKO: Can not view directories using file:// URLs", the root directory was the only one that could be viewed. Tested with 2000-04-03-15 and 2000-04-05-08 on customized Slackware 4.0 using fmvw2, displaying the root directory works fine.
Tested with NS 6.0b1 and also got the same problem on three fully up-to-date Debian Woody installs, kernel 2.2.14. However I just got a friend to test on RedHat 6.2, and it works for him. Must be debian specific. I'll leave it up to someone else to close it or not.
email@example.com - are you still seeing this problem with recent builds of Mozilla? We don't want to close it if you can, even if it is Debian-specific. Gerv
'file:///' displays fine for me, using today's Debian woody and the May 18 Mozilla Linux Build. Either it's not Debian specific, or it has been fixed.
Resolving WORKSFORME. Cheers, Neil :-) Gerv
