That is a very old release of Firefox. I would suggest you remove it, and install a much newer version.

Here is a link to how to install Firefox on linux. I would suggest you remove the old version. If it was installed through a rpm, then remove it that way. If it was installed from a bin file, you can delete the directory and sub-directories where Firefox lives. Back up your bookmarks first. Other options should be preserved.

Hi,
I'm using Firefox 3.5.3 on Windows 7 64-bit RC and it has just started doing this to me as well.
I know it's not Linux, but did you manage to fix the problem?
cheers,
Adrian
