Firefox Karmic freezing

After a long strech of almost daily updates offered through KPackageKit for 
firefox (now Namoroka/3.6.4pre), it has become almost unusable.

For example, launching from a shell I get:
	(firefox-bin:2539): GLib-WARNING **: g_set_prgname() called multiple times
then if I go to <> or 
<> I get
	** (firefox-bin:2563): WARNING **: Serious fd usage error 15
	** (firefox-bin:2563): WARNING **: Serious fd usage error 13
end FF becomes unresponsive.
I can look up a word in Google, but clicking on a link *may* cause FF freezing 

I waited some days for another update that would fix this problem, but  the 
devs essm satisfied with what they attained  ;O)))
(or it's somewhat harder to fix and they are working hard at it)

Also not seeing this problem appear on the list opens the possibility that the 
updates are not responsible.

I tried googling (with Konqueror) but did not come yet with a simple answer, 
ether too many hits or too few, depending on the keywords.
One suggestion I could try is replace the 3.6.4pre version with the stable 
3.6.3...someone knows the best way to achieve this? or can anyone offer another 

Thanks in advance		Perry
