it also causes it to go the the "update and install new Firefox version" in Safari
Please check your OS settings. Looks like a proxy is serving that page for all kind of browsers installed on your system. This doesn't sound like a Firefox bug.

it also only happens to goolge search it works with all other toolbar searches. but it did ask me to do something for a certificate with the first google related thing i did.
Where have you downloaded this Firefox version?
No reply, INCOMPLETE. Please retest with Firefox 3.6.x or later and a new profile (http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Managing+profiles). If you continue to see this issue with the newest firefox and a new profile, then please comment on this bug.
