History and Back Button in Firefox 3.0 does not work

Today I observed a strange problem on my opensolaris notebook. The back button and the history in firefox did no longer work. If found out that the onwership of some files in the profile directory in $HOME/.mozilla/profiles/... changed. The file places.sqlite-journal was owned by root and not by my own account.

I am not aware that I changed somehow the ownership of this file. However a chown on the file and a restart of firefox sovled the problem.

Comments:

Something deffinately changed. while i used to be able to have my entire history backwards and forwards through the back button, now once i go through 3 levels deep anything else is lost. I can no longer search a term in google, for example, and then click on a link in a link in a link and yet return back to the original google search page. i thought i had done something, but apparently not.
