Something like this was happening to me, too. When I updated to 3.6 yesterday, I had been in trouble submitting posts to:
Many times, when I tried to post something, I got some weird server response.

I went to sleep, the notebook entered one of it's sleep modes and now I can't reproduce the bug, which was happening consistently yesterday.

I don't know what made the bug stop. Maybe it's a first-run-after-update-only bug, or a you-didn't-login-after-update-yet bug... Anyway, it may be a hint to some more important flaw, so I'm leaving this info here.

Oh yes, I forgot to mention: I COULD submit posts when the bug appeared, by following this procedure:
- Hitting BACK (history-1) or CTRL-Z (in oglobo, where the submitted text is erased but the page is not update).
- Clicking on SUBMIT again

If I tried changing the text before submitting, it failed again, IIRC.

I posted too early: the bug appeared again: oglobo returned me the same weird error as yesterday: "type mismatch".
Reporter, are you still seeing this issue with Firefox 3.6.13 or later in safe mode? If not, please close. These links can help you in your testing.

You can also try to reproduce in Firefox 4 Beta 8 or later, there are many improvements in the new version, http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-beta.html
