scroll bars dissapear in firebird 0.7

everything was going fine.

untill i went to a website that needed a plugin to be viewed corectly.
i click yes, expecting it to install.
went through process, did all it said during flashplayer-install.

now my firebird has no up-down scrool bar or left-right scrool bar.

i guess this was done by the flashplayer plugin, but i dont know. ive uninstalled both plugin and browser, then reinstalled just firebire.

same result.

PLEASE help. this is very unnerving.

I remember I didn't download firebird because I remember reading it was still in the beta stages. Your problem is most likely a bug, so you should report it =) but you should read their faq to see if it isnt a bug but a known problem.

rm -rf ~/.phoenix

To install flash, download from and reference the following line

Linux: Download Flash Player 6.0r79 then extract and flashplayer.xpt to your plugins directory

You beat me to telling him to delete the profile folder. lol I use Firebird and I have for a long time and I think it's great, beta or not. I love trying new versions of things though.

Oh yeah, let me stop rambling for a moment. Just go to your home directory and choose to view hidden/backup files and folders and delete the one named .phoenix and .mozilla. I haven't had the same problem so I can't help you out with the reasons. I use Gnome so if you use KDE, Window Maker, ICE WM, or another desktop type then it could possibly be that as well.
