Try in Safe Mode.

Please give a download you are trying if Safe Mode or a new profile do not work.

The link that I provided earlier won't work anymore. I tried that:

And it works! So the bug might be corrected in my version that is:

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; fi; rv: Gecko/20100914 Firefox/3.6.10 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)

Well, I used Vista, but bug is just the same: #458669
So I assume that all is working also with Windows XP.
