Nobody reads release notes nowadays, I guess.  From the page at in section "
Known Issues":

      * If Firefox 0.9 is placed in a location with limited access
        privileges, it should be run by a user with access to that
        location first, so that all initial startup files are generated.
        There may be issues still where if a restricted-access user is
        the first to run the app, these files may not be generated
        properly and Firefox may enter an infinite restart loop. This
        will be fixed in a future release.

Running firefox as root once did the trick for me.
