xfs is not used by default in Kubuntu. He don't say what version he
has but xfs is not installed on my Kubunt Gutsy or Hardy.
I have no problem with Firefox 3.0.3. The first thing i would try is
to backup the .mozilla folder, remove it and start firefox to make
sure it's not some extension or settings that's the cause.
