My firefox crashed just a while ago, and I was prompted to fill out a bug report. After that, I was not able to open any other application, and my bottom toolbar went completely blank. I restarted my computer, only to find the same problem; however, at this time, I am able to open applications, though nothing shows on my toolbar (except trash can).
Here's a screenshot of the problem: http://i181.photobucket.com/albums/x...reenshot-1.png
What can be done?
Edit: I was prompted by some report on the failure of 'nautilus' at about the same time. After looking it up, I can confidently presume it to be the source of the problem.
