Any file operation, i.e. one that opens the file chooser, or tries to print
to a file, will fail because of the bug I mentioned in another thread,
The fix is to replace the /opt/bin/firefox wrapper script with the patched

version when RH gets around to releasing it (and Johnny gets time to build
the CentOS version!).
