On a current NetBSD i386 system I upgraded firefox-gtk2 to version 0.9.
After starting firefox as an unprivileged user it tries to open
/usr/pkg/lib/firefox-gtk2/components.ini read-write and fails (the file
has permissions 0644), and after that it dumps core:

$ firefox-gtk2                                                                 
*** loading the extensions datasource
*** ExtensionManager:checkForMismatches: no access privileges to application directory!
Memory fault (core dumped) 

When started as root firefox dump core (but the open() succeeds, of course).
A gdb bt reveals:

#0  0x48711214 in pthread__sched_idle2 () from /usr/lib/
#1  0x4870f153 in pthread__upcall () from /usr/lib/

Firefox-gtk2-0.8nb3 worked fine.

Anybody seeing the same problem?

TIA, Jukka
