I don't see your problem.

Have you tried closing firefox completely and re-opening it after the last
package upgrade?
Comment 2 Kurt Heine 2006-09-24 22:58:38 EDT
I closed firefox down and rebooted my desktop and the problem seems to have gone
away.  I am not sure which fixed the problem but one did.  I shall keep my eye
out to see when the next update comes through and see if the problem happens
again and check to see if firefox needs to be restarted and the whole desktop.

Each time you update firefox, you need to shut it down and restart it (no need
to reboot, just quitting firefox is fine).
