I want to describe my experience with my Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic. I was also
using Firefox 3.5.6 but after the upgrade, it went to 3.5.7.

The steps are as follows:
1 - I received a message from update manager to perform updates, and I accept it.
2 - After that, the system asked for a reboot, and I accept it.
3 - During the reboot I decided to press F2 and look at my BIOS settings. I noticed the hardware clock time was wrong. I do not remember what time it was but I remember that it was also set for PM, when the correct time was like 10:05 AM. I did correct the hardware clock and reboot the system.
4 - After I reboot, my browse start to display the error message from this bug report.  
5 - After reading on this report, I noticed the above description #66 mentioned by Gelignite where he was "playing with the hardware clock" . At that time I looked at my time and noticed it was showing like 3:06 AM when it should be around 11:00 AM.
6 - Before I play with the time settings, I close all my browsers.
7 - Lastly I went to preferences on my clock and set the time to the correct time, 11:07 AM. 

8 - When I open the browser the message from this bug report were gone.
I did not reinstall anything, only fixed the time.
