User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.0.7) Gecko/20060921 Ubuntu/dapper-security Firefox/1.5.0.7

I was modifying a gmail notify program to open firefox and goto gmail.com so I went to terminal to see if executing firefox http://gmail.com and got nothing. After that I was not able to get firefox to open gmail.com!

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. goto terminal type firefox http://gmail.com or firefox "http://gmail.com"
2. notice it does not reach the url
3. try from withing firefox @ the address bar

Actual Results:  
No Gmail url!


I fixed it by removing everything (except bookmarks.htm) from my profile folder in ./mozzilla/firefox and my cache!

So, it sounds like this was due to you having some extension installed.

No, I don't (didn't) have any installed. I just use plain Firefox.
I use flash but gmail also worked before and after. 
NOT an extension problem.
