User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9b5) Gecko/2008043010 Fedora/3.0-0.60.beta5.fc9 Firefox/3.0b5
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9b5) Gecko/2008043010 Fedora/3.0-0.60.beta5.fc9 Firefox/3.0b5

I have fresh install of FC 9 that comes preloaded with firefox3.0.beta5. I had a machine crash due to shutdown of the NIS server with firefox opened. On restarting firefox it gave the usual message "Another firefox is running". I cleared up the profile files and started my FF. It starts up but with the entire upper region with the exception of home button is inactive. The address bar and google bar does not respond anymore while all other icons are greyed out.

I tried reinstalling FF but the same error recurs. This does happens when I work as the root user. I have no clue on why this happens.

Reproducible: Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.It happened due to a hard boot of the machine with firefox opened.
Actual Results:  
1.address bar has become inactive
2.google bar is inactive
3.All buttons in the toolbar with exception of home and tab have greyed out.


As a root user i do not have the above said problems. It works normally.
I feel there is some configuration file located outside .mozilla that brings about this problem. I tried moving all user config files and restarting FF but the same problem repeated.
