google chat on a web page does not work
also there should be a sub-menu near the 'Reply' button on the right when reading mail it contains  'Reply to all, Forward, Print, Add to Contacts list, Delete this message, Report phishing, Show original, Message text garbled?' 
it is visible in Opera9.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
2.open message from inbox
3.try to find button 'show original' inside google mail (should be in drop-down menu where Reply button)
4. check integrated google  chat 
Actual Results:  
can not open this drop down menu near the Reply button
google chat returns 'Your internet connection is experiencing problems or your network administrator has blocked Gmail chat. Learn more'

Expected Results:  
dropdown menu worksm it has 'Show original' and 'message text garbled' in it, google chat on a web page works

default installation of Mozilla firefox 2.0/russian  on Mac osx 1.3.9 

reproducible on all 2.x releases
Does it do the same thing in firefox's safemode?

yes it behaves the same in safe mode.
However, I just noticed, that you can launch this drop down menu, clicking to the right of 'Reply' button. it just does not display the picture of 'drop-down'.
google chat does not work anyway and I can't find a workaround
Eugene, do you use a slow connection to connect to the internet by chance? Maybe dialup? I can't reproduce this using Firefox ru-RU on Mac OS X 10.4.8. I've seen the chat fail in the past when using a slow connection however. That might also make the drop-down image not finish loading (since Gmail has a lot of other things to load).

regarding the connection speed, it is high speed, though behind the firewall/NAT.
But I dont think that matters because in Opera it works correctly. also note that I have Mac OSX 10.3.9, and you checked on 10.4.8. Thanks
Ah, well, it looks like you might have images blocked. I noticed the Gmail image is missing as well. Somehow images aren't displaying but I can't be sure why. It could be something with your firewall that Opera is somehow bypassing. Or a setting that's set in Opera that you need to also set in Firefox, perhaps? That'd explain both the images missing and Gmail Chat not working. Although, why it's limited to Gmail, I'm not sure.

there are no configuration settings for the firewall, I have linux/macosx install dual-boot,  and everything just works.
regarding images blocked - I don;t have this issue on other web pages
also as you see not all images are blocked
Could you please try making a new firefox profile

yes it worked OK with the new profile.
is it possible to migrate my bookmarks/saved passwords to the new profile?

Sure, http://kb.mozillazine.org/Migrating_settings_to_a_new_profile

The problem may be fixable in your existing profile however; do you have any changes in your UserContent.css that blocks stuff?

I can not find any file named UserContent.css in my profile

I noticed that fonts have changed after the profile reset. may be there was some issue with font rendering?
OK it's not that then. Probably easiest to migrate your old profile to the new one then. (Although hopefully you won't migrate your problem to the new one!)

I don't know about your fonts-changed issue.
