I have no issue with FF3.0.1, do still have the same even with FF2.0.16 or FF3.0.1 ?
Had you tried safe-mode, new profile or a new account ?
This bug was originally reported on Firefox 2.x or older, which is no longer supported and will not be receiving any more updates. I strongly suggest that you update to Firefox 3.6.8 or later, update your plugins (flash, adobe, etc.), and retest in a new profile. If you still see the issue with the updated Firefox, please post here. Otherwise, please close as RESOLVED > WORKSFORME
