rather an X Server problem

Based on the error output I would rather say you have a problem in your X Server configuration. I don't think Firefox is to blame if it's the official binary download.

To get any reasonable feedback to your problem you should at least tell what distribution you use, how you installed it, etc.

Welcome to LQ!

To get better help provide more information.
What linux distribution?
Why did you not use package management?
Is this Firefox-3? It's still beta, you can expect problems.
Errors you are getting may be caused by a broken download, or your Linux has too old libraries to support newest Firefox.

RH? Better, not good enough though. What version of Red Hat?
See the documentation perhaps?
http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/e...hical-rpm.html
Or maybe you installed an old obsolete version of RH? This would explain the errors you are getting.
Generally, we do not download and install manually in Linux. You can do that, but organized package management is far better.
RH is not free, if you do not want to pay consider using free RH clone CentOS instead.

Ubuntu is an excellent choice. Make sure you familiarize yourself with documentation, this will save you great deal of time.
