    Default Firefox "unmounts" my user home folder


    I've installed opensuse 11.1 RC1 with kde 4.1 (fresh install). I have
    my system up to date with repositories:

    The problem comes when i start firefox 3.0.4 (like right now while i'm
    typing) and i then i'm unable to see folders and files under my user
    home (/home/metalklesk) using any file navigator (konqueror or dolphin)
    as non-root user, but if i enter directly to one sub folder inside my
    user home i can see and use my files without any problem

    If i look for my files in a console, my files and folders are there and
    i can use them (as root or non-root user, works normally).

    This problem comes only when i start firefox and is making almost all
    applications to hang when they try to open a file in my user home (like
    NetBeans, Firefox when trying to download something else out of

    Here you can see an screenshot when i start my system without starting
    firefox, everything is working ok


    Here you can see an screenshot after i started firefox, everything is
    working incorreclty


    here you can see that i can enter directly to my home sub folders
    without any problem


    and i can open any file in my home using console, but not using GUI
    Software. To workaround this problem i have to reboot my system and not
    use firefox as web browser

    Doing a chmod 755 to my home doesn't help, doing chown neither.

    Does anyone knows why this happens and how to solve it ??
