Angry No back/forward buttons or scrollbar in firefox


Hi, I've just installed mozilla firefox 0.8 using Gentoo's emerge. Now, forefox doesn't have a scrollbar or back/forward buttons. I am using KDE 3.2.1 if that matters. I have unmerged and re-emerged firefox but that didn't solve the problem. Any suggestions welcomed. Thank you.

Have you tried downloading the tar.gz from the mozilla site?

It just unpacks to a single folder, so you don't have to compile or anything - just put the unpacked folder wherever you want.

I noticed that the back/forward buttons disappeared when I experimented with some firefox themes. I realized that doesn't explain what happened to your buttons, but nonetheless, you might get the buttons back by loading a different theme, since some themes seem to be missing icons for those buttons.

What theme are you using? If you're getting this problem with the default theme, try a clean profile (rename or delete ~/.phoenix)

I just remembered, someone on this forum had a similar problem when he installed a new version of firefox over the top of an old firebird version. His scroll bars dissapeared and I believe he had some trouble with fonts too.

I did install this version over firebird. I will try completely removing and reinstalling the program. Thanks
