I recently upgraded my system to X modular. My desktop and laptop upgrades went with no problems. Later, when trying to use Firefox to get to Gmail, Firefox has a problem on my desktop system.
I can go to the site, but then it just hangs. I cannot click on any links, I have to force quit Firefox. on my laptop, Firefox works fine.
I've tried trashing the .mozilla directory to see if there was some problem there, but no luck. I tried re-installing Firefox, but that hasn't helped. I tried both mozilla-firefox-bin and just mozilla-firefox.
Opera works for gmail. although, Opera doesn't display the 'quick contact' in gmail, not sure if it did that before or not.
I tried using firefox as root, but that didn't work either (figured that might be a way to test a permissions problem).
I've checked javascript, it *is* enabled. I'm able to use other sites that have javascript, just not gmail.
Firefox is version 1.5.0.5

Does anybody have any pointers at what I can check to get this working again?

Thanks
Roger

after logging out of kde and loggin into Gnome, there was an error about the Firefox icon not being found.
Now, when I start from the command prompt, it seems to be working. What's still odd though, when I was in KDE, I was starting from the CLI.


If anybody has seen this oddity, I wouldn't mind it if you posted saying you had the problem too.
