Not sure if you are still having the problem, but I just ran into this tonight as well. My problem was with the listener, which I know you mentioned checking. But here is what I tried:
Check the status of your listener:
prompt> lsnrctl status
I was getting nothing back, couldn't start. I then just checked my listener.ora at:
My HOST was set to the wrong value instead of "localhost.localdomain" and therefore could start the listener:
(ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = localhost.localdomain)(PORT=1521))
There is no reference to the 8080 needed in this file as far as I can tell.
Hope it helps a bit.
I did the listener status command and we do, indeed have the line with host name. Listener is running, I am also successfully running queries in SQLPlus, both in command mode and as invoked from the database menu in gnome. The only 2 things that do not display are database home page and GetHelp=>Read Online Help options, producing the same error message - Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at 127.0.0.1:8087
We changed the port number the last time we installed to 8087, but it did not make any difference...
