Suse 8.1: Mozilla Menu Bar disappeared After installing gestures plug-in


I went into root to install the gestures plug-in on mozilla cuz I couldn't do it in normal user and when I was done and went back to the normal user the menu bar was gonefrom mozilla. If I look closely I can see the thin line at the top where the menubar is but there is nothing on the menu bar(I don't have it shrunk). I currently have the littlemozilla skin in the normal user mode for skins. I can't do anything but browse in mozilla right now.
Before I went to root to install the plug-in I tryed installing it from normal user. Not sure if that did anything but it said it couldn't do anything cuz I wasn't in root.

Sometimes that family of browsers can be a little flaky about plugins and skins and all - I hesitate to post on a zero-reply without a straight answer, but have you tried switching back to the default skin? Does the menu bar appear there, or is it screwed up the same way? That might help narrow down where the problem is. And, also, toggling over to the default skin and back to your skin may fix the problem, itself.

Not sure about the root issue - my Linux installs have been limited to compiling from source or plugging in rpms from the distro package so I'm not sure how plugins would work - but however you installed it, if it worked as root, it should either just work or not work for a user - it shouldn't blow out a user's menu bar.

Crap. Didn't work like no menu bar even with the default skin? Well, it's probably not a skin problem, at least. *g* I shouldn't have posted. But sometimes simple fixes like that do the trick. I'm afraid I can't really help but hopefully somebody will come along who can.

You don't happen to have another moz-type browser do you? Sometimes plugins and other browsers can get their wires crossed. I don't know - if it was me, I'd just start poking through configuration files looking for anything that looked screwed up, since the install probably screwed something up in there. If it works in root, compare root's configuration to your user's. Or possibly even - well, again, I'm not recommending this but saying what I might do in my infinite lunacy - try copying root's configs into my user directory and changing the permissions and ownership, after backing up the originals under another filename, so I could change it back - and see if switching any of those fixed it.

Somebody help HellBound out! *g*

Have you tried http://www.mozillazine.org/forums/? They might have something. And, worst comes to worst, it looks like it won't be long before you can try installing 1.4.
