Red Hat has seriously screwed up their 1.5.0.5 builds somehow (from my observations). I would suggest going back to Firefox 1.5.0.4 if this is at all possible. 

Please reopen if you can reproduce this in an official mozilla.org build. 

PS: I've read that exporting MOZ_DISABLE_PANGO=1 is a workaround for this. See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=200627#c6.
