4. Restart firefox

Width of address bar/search input gets resetted to minimal width

I could not reproduce the issue reported.
Can you attach some screenshots?
There you go, attached 2 screenshots.
Let me know if I can be of any help over this.
Could you see if the issue occurs if using Firefox in safe mode:

How about with a new, empty testing profile? (Don't install any addons into it)

I experience this problem as well, with Firefox 4.0 under Ubuntu 10.10, whith a freshly regenerated localstore.rdf. However, it does not seem to happen at strictly every launch.

I was able to get around this by changing ownership of localstore.rdf to root.

this bug might be related to #612928, #642440, #633250, #644975 or #645971. I attached my own localstore.rdf to he first bug in this list.
Is this a dupe of bug 599056?
