well, I haven't re-booted (and haven't observed, or at least noticed,
the behavior you mention), but I moved aside (renamed) the directory
where my firefox installs, downloaded 3.6.12 and installed it, and it
works fine. so I suppose it's possible we had a bad download, or as time
has marched by some kind of cruft has accumulated in the former firefox
directory. beats me.

at least it's working now.
