mozilla history always blank


i'm sure this is an easy one.

for some reason, the history tab in mozilla 1.4 (redhat 9) is always blank. i've checked my user directory and the history.txt file shows up everything. permissions are okay.

i've uninstalled the rpm, removed the .mozilla directory, removed profiles, unistalled galeon, etc... and it always comes back blank. hit f9, look at history and nothing there.

kinda at a loss.

cheers, michael

Im at a loss on this one too.....
your browser doesnt show any history in the history side bar but the history.txt file does......

I would say mess with the preferences a little maybe reset everything to default and start from there......
cause what could have happened is after you uninstalled the rpm...
its possible that it didnt remove all the conf files or when you re-installed the new rpm it used the conf files already there.......

or maybe try building it from source.....(but be sure to manually search for any config files and remove them before doing so)

when i uninstalled it, i removed all .mozilla and .galeon directories which i think should have removed any old config files (unless i'm missing some)

the perms on history.dat and .txt where -rw-r--r-- and i even changed them to 777. not sure if this is a right way to troubleshoot.

i'll try the build from src.

thanks, michael
