Firefox Symbol Lookup Error

I can't figure out what's wrong with this....

Awhile ago, Firefox just stopped working, along with Mozilla...

After a day or so, it just started working again, I have no idea what was wrong.

But today it stopped working again, with the same error. I haven't updated anything, changed any packages, libraries, compiled anything, done pretty much ANYTHING with my computer, except a bit of browsing the internet and working on some Python scripts....

Running "firefox" just hangs, but running "firefox-bin" gives the following error, which was the same both times:

/usr/local/firefox/firefox-bin: symbol lookup error: /usr/local/firefox/firefox-bin: undefined symbol: _ZN12nsCharTraitsIcE12sEmptyBufferE
I tried searching Google and the forums, but I can't find anything remotely resembling this problem.

Any help would be appreciated.

It seems to happen off and on.... seemingly randomly....

It does the same thing for Thunderbird.....

I still have the problem, so any help would be nice

For those of you with the same problems, I think I figured out what it was (THINK)...

I think it was that I linked to the wrong version of java in my JRE plugins directory, I linked it to the ns7-gcc29 one when I needed just the ns7 one.
