Firebird scroll bar missing


OSNN Addict
a friend of mine use my firebird and now the scroll bar, the back button and the forward button is missing. i tried right clicking on the toolbar to add the buttons back but they weren't there. restore default icons didn't help either.

i deleted the mozilla folder and extracting it back but it didn't help. i use the latest nightlies.... with mouse gesture as the only extension installed

the only thing i can think of right now is deleting the profile folder but i thought i'd ask here before i do that...


I may actually be insane.
Only time I've heard of this is:

1) with a skin applied
2) on some of the very latest nightlies, but only on images.

Yep, I had the image one. I was using a nightly and if I went to make the picture full size I would lose the scrollbar. I went back to the old one and haven't had a problem since.
I'm using one of the latest nightlies, and I don't have this problem:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6b) Gecko/20031202 Firebird/0.7+

It's most likely due to a non-default theme or some incompatible extension. If changing the theme back to the default one doesn't work, just backup bookmarks.html, prefs.js, user.js, userContent.css and userChrome.css from your profiles folder, delete it and the MozillaFirebird folder, and try again with the latest nightly. You can then replace the above files in your new profiles folder.
Or you could just go back to the last stable milestone build. :)

thanks... i really don't know which files to back up..

i changed the theme back to default but still doesn't work... so i deleted the profile folder, the mozilla folder, reinstall mozilla, installed the theme i used before, and install the extension i used before... no problem so far....

Latest nightlies have broken themes again. I am no longer supporting nightlies. Themes are compatible with milestone releases only.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
