Firefox on 64bit OpenSuSE problem


I am currently running a OpenSuSE 10.3 x86_64 box. Anyone encountered the same problem as mine? (although this happens in my 10.2 box as well)

When my firefox(2,3) has a extra window dialog such as a pop-up, preference window, bookmark manager, I just cant type anything in that new window dialog. Let me give 2 examples:

1.) Browsing my bank credit card website. To login, you must open its popup (it won't work if I choose to open it with new tab). When the browser pop-up a new window, I just cant type a d-a-m-n thing on it.

2.) I wanna rename my existing bookmark and I launch the bookmark manager of firefox. I juz cant type anything in the bookmark manager.

Meanwhile, all keyboard inputs are absolutely normal in other programs. The most surprising thing is that I can still key-in in my main firefox window dialog but not any pop-up.

It's so annoying. Anyone encounters the same problem as mine? and any idea and solution?

Did you have any add ons installed ?

If you like to rename the existing folders , goto the folder click
on right button of the mouse goto properties and change the name
Hope this is what you mean

In my opinion it has nothing to with suse or firefox
Something during install has gone wrong
Maybe it worth to reinstall firefox , but after un installing firefox using yast
The hidden files of firefox is still there , so you have to delete it manually
And then do firefox as fresh install
Or try a other web browser Opera for instance

Hope it helps
