noob question on firefox - right click problem on FC3

Hi all,

Here is my config

browser: firefox 1.02

I installed FC3 into my laptop with all the default options set.

When I start firefox, it seems that everything is fine, except that when I right-click the mouse, there is no short-cut menu.

I do all the update with 'yum' and the problem is still here.

What should I do? hack the about:config? if so, would you please show me where in the config I should tweek?

Or should I download the package from and install it again?

You mean I should goto, download and reinstall firefox? Is this the only way?

What if I use yum to remove the package and install it again? If this still got problem, does it mean that the firefox package for FC3 in the repository has bugs? Or did I set somethings wrong in FC3, like having some 'important' libraries removed without my knowledge? Or is it true that firefox, which came with FC3 iso, is broken on the right click?

By the way, the right click does work from the keyboard.
