And if that doesn't work - rename your ~/.mozilla folder and try again.
This will move your bookmarks, extensions etc aside and firefox will
start 'fresh' so to speak.
If that succeeds then you know the problem lies in your own info and
you can start thinking about problem extensions, or google how to
create a new profile etc....
