Firefox 3.0 has not been released, so, you are using a beta or rc. You should specify that, and if using a beta, you should migrate to rc. And if there are problems, the first thing you should do is to uninstall ALL the plugins and try a vanilla firefox. Most problems are caused by cpu or memory hungry plugins. If nothing of that works, you should try a clean configuration (move ~/.mozilla/ elsewhere and test).
If you can't still stand firefox3, you will go back to 2.0. If the plugins doesn't work, uninstall them all, go to it's home page, read the instructions and install the correct version of the plugin for firefox 2.x. Not all the versions of the plugins work with all versions of firefox.
