Firefox problems... cant use formularies (send mails, use forums..)

Actually i cant even enter hotmail, gmail doesnt let my send mails (allows me to view, and compose, but not to send them) and other mail accounts with other services i have dont work either...

I thought it was Firefox's fault, as when i installed SUSE, it was version 0.8, i runned the System Update, and updated it to 0.9.3 and here i'm, with the same problem... also, im "Triple-Booting", i have Arch Linux (ive been using it for over a year and a half now), and WinXP Pro...

The problem is, that i was getting tyred of some issues in Arch, and wanted to try something different.. more stable and " popular" so to speak... Ive used MDK, Slack, Arch, the last few years, and now, SuSE. In Arch i was having the same issue, that was the thing that finally made me make the move to another distro.. to find out, it was not Arch's fault!!!! :cry:

Firefox is running with the Java, Flash, and PDF plugins... and they are working alright i think...

Also, i checked the options about javascript in my preferences in Firefox, and they are ok, all checked.

Last but not least, i found out, i cannot start Firefox as Root in SUSE, here is the error:


linux:/home/crow # firefox
DISPLAY empty or unusable

(Although i can start it as Root in Arch, and i still have this same issues.)

I checked XF86Config just in case, and its set ok, as its working, this is the only part of the file i can think of being related.


Section "Device"
  BoardName    "GeForce2 MX/MX 400"
  BusID        "1:0:0"
  #Driver      "nvidia"
  Driver        "nv"
  Identifier  "Device[0]"
  Screen      0
  VendorName  "NVidia"

Ive disabled the nvidia controller as its giving me some errors, and dont have the time to play with it, as i dont actually need 3d right now.

Hope someone has a gooood guess on this... im going nuts this days.. have to check mails through windows is a pain in the butt. :cry:

I really dont know whats going on, i cant use formularies it seems.. or send them... i dont know.. but it has something to do with that i guess.

I didnt had this problem in Arch until a couple of weeks when i runned a full system update after a month or so, of not doing it --got broadband, and made a full system update for the firs time--, but with SUSE, i made a clean install, even a _new_ home partition, everything 100% fresh, even the Swap.

Please... help :cry:
