History and Back Button in Firefox 3.0 does not work
By rhierlmeier on Aug 28, 2009
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.
