User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008052912 Firefox/3.0 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008052912 Firefox/3.0 I have my home directory on an NFS server. (server is OpenBSD 4.1-current (GENERIC) #2: Sun Mar 18 10:49:08 CST 2007). $ cat /etc/exports /mnt/300G -mapall=grg:grg 192.168.0.100 $ cat /etc/rc.conf.local nfs_server=YES # see sysctl.conf for nfs client configuration portmap=YES # Note: inetd(8) rpc services need portmap too lockd=YES The client's /etc/fstab contains 192.168.0.90:/mnt/300G /mnt/300G nfs vers=3,rw,nosuid 0 0 When starting Firefox 3, the navigation bar is mostly non functional. - entering a url and hitting enter does nothing. - entering a url and clicking the green arrow does nothing. - the stop button is always greyed out. - the home button always goes to the firefox/google portal page, never the set homepage. - typing into the search box and hitting enter does nothing. - there are no back/forward buttons in the navigation bar. - there are no bookmarks. This is a rather difficult to diagnose problem for a user not familiar with Firefox internals, as there is no error message presented to the user. mzz on irc.mozilla.org tells me this is an sqlite issue with NFS locking. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Setup an OpenBSD NFS server without locking (unknown if other systems provoke the same issue) 2. Put your ~/.mozilla directory on an NFS mounted directory. 3. Start Firefox 3. 4. Attempt to use any part of the browser, you'll quickly find something that's nonfunctional.
