Loss of desktop functionality after setting new desktop from firefox in fc2/gnome.


hi. I tried right clicking a wallpaper image in firefox to set as my wallpaper but now my wallpaper is a dull purple color, i can't see my icons, and it appears i can't right click to get a menu. It is like that for all the desktops. I tried to change the wallpaper in preferences but it wouldn't let me. I could see the wall paper in the selections but it was originally a jpeg image but in the menu it changed the name to firefox-wallpaper or something similar with the file extension .png. I tried changing the wallpaper both as a user and root. Im using fedora core 2 with the gnome desktop. Has anyone had this problem occur and where able to fix it?

Angry Same Problem

Hi,
First post here

I'm also having the same problemas above but it didn't start with FireFox - I did change the wallpaper manually though. I tried creating a new user account and logging in with that account and the desktop showed up like it should.

Anyone else come across this problem? know how to fix it?

it goes away after restarting sometimes and sometimes it doesn't. I haven't been able to figure out exactly when the problem occurs...
