Robert,

I have run my own tests, and conclude that there has to be something wrong with firefox.  Why?

I am using konqueror and recently got opera and both are working beautifully as of right now.  I started firefox from command line and I got 

/usr/lib64/firefox-3.1b3/run-mozilla.sh: line 131: 3204 Segmentation fault
"$prog" ${1+"$@"} 

I tried in safe-mode and the machine froze.  Two times already.  I won't even bother testing another time.  There has to be something wrong.  

I have ati radeon driver and it is OK I believe.  Why does opera work and konqueror but not firefox?

Only wierd thing I am seeing is the following:
