Have you perchance been playing with Gnome2? I've run into Galeon
problems every time I've tried out the vicious build scripts (that is,
problems when I'm running the "official" 1.4 Gnome). Pages load
incorrectly, my "smart bookmark" boxes get permanently resized to 1 (and
ignore the preferences setting), and other fun stuff.

The only way I found to reset it was to uninstall, and then reinstall,
galeon and mozilla. But maybe someone else will have a less drastic
solution handy. ;-)
