Try removing and recreating your ~/.phoenix directory (or just move it
elsewhere and copy out the bookmarks if you want to keep them).
mozilla^Wphoenix^Wfirebird^Wfirefox has broken compatibility of this
directory a number of times, so you will run into weird problems if
you have an old enough installation.
