Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

This may be a duplicate of Bug #198212

I use an old laptop (Pentium 3 with 196MB RAM). Dell Inspiron 4000.
kernel is 2.6.24-23-generic #1 SMP Mon Jan 26 00:13:11 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux.
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/2008121621 Ubuntu/8.04 (hardy) Firefox/3.0.5

I experience the same problem as Ralph Janke reported in Bug #198212.
When i try to move a folder in the Bookmarks menu by clicking it,
holding it and dragging it, the whole desktop freezes. I can not close
the program, start another program or shutdown the laptop. The mouse
pointer turns to different one (a plus sign or something) and can be
moved. But it does not help since the desktop is not responding. The
only thing that works is Ctrl+Alt+F1/F7/F8. I go to shell by
Ctrl+Alt+F1, login, kill firefox process, log out and come back by
pressing Ctrl+Alt+F8. Then I restart the Firefox to continue working. I
experienced it a few times.
