Sounds like a Symbolic link issue did you try to reinstall? (Mozilla-Firefox)

If you are sure you have the latest versions you can send a bugreport to the Debian Firefox maintainers (the address is specified in the package description).
I (and a number of my friends) use Firefox from the archive provided by Mozilla.org themselves. It contains most libraries embedded, probably it would be a good idea to install it from http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/

Sorry, I thought you use Debian
Of course you should report a bug to the maintainers of your distro's package
