From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.1 i686; en-US; 0.8) Gecko/20010222
BuildID:    2001022209

Installed mozilla 2001022209 as root. Ran as a different user with the
following entry in prefs.js:
user_pref("capability.policy.popupsites.windowinternal.open","noAccess");
Bring up psm. The main windows will be blank.
When the above entry is removed psm displays fine.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
Install mozilla as root.
As a different user put the following entry in their prefs.js:
user_pref("capability.policy.popupsites.windowinternal.open","noAccess");
start the browser and then start psm. The main fields will be blank.
Standard error will also report a "security violation" access a port
on the localhost. Something like: 
http://4:nonce401027458527212428@127.0.0.1:49902/get?baseRef=secadvisor&target=5

This is a known issue. When PSM is installed as root, in can only be run as
root. This might be bug 64671, at least it's referred to there. Adding the
capability.policy pref has nothing whatsoever to do with PSM not coming up. As a
matter of fact, that line in prefs by itself will do nothing at all; you need
another line describing what sites "popupsites" refers to. The problem here is
in installing as root.
