Firefox 3 Navigation Buttons Disabled in Ubuntu 9


I was having the issue of firefox not enabling the back, forward, stop, or refresh buttons no matter what.  I had navigated and had valid history, but they refused to show.  Apparently firefox uses sqlite for its history or something.

The problem was the file: ~/.mozilla/firefox/blahblah.default/places.sqlite-journal only had root access.  Changing this file with a chmod 777 fixed the problem.  Now I can properly use firefox in Ubuntu again.
