User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; pt-BR; rv:1.9.1.9) Gecko/20100330 Fedora/3.5.9-1.fc11 Firefox/3.5.9

The search's field from firefox (Yahoo!, Google, etc..) didn't work. I noticed that there was not space left on /home (/home/andrey/.mozilla...).

I got some free space and it worked again....

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Fill up your Drive (/home partition)
2. Try to search for anything
3. It will not work. Clean some Mbs and it will work again.


Expected Results:  
Tell there is not enough space on HD....

It's expected that application stop working if there is no disk space left.
As long that it doesn't crash...

I agree with Matti....But let user wait for minutes until he knows it's lack of disk space its a windoze thing...I think the application could tell it.

Does it work if you clear preference Privacy / 'Remember search and form history'?
If so this is probably a variation of bug 553577.

No reply, INCOMPLETE. Please retest with Firefox 4 or later and a new profile (http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Managing+profiles). Also, ensure you have the most up to date graphics drivers, operating system updates, and plugin versions (flash, java, etc). If you continue to see this issue with the newest Firefox and a new profile, then please comment on this bug.
