All right, here we go ...
I moved ~/.mozilla as suggested and let firefox install a new directory.
But that did not change anything nor it had a positive effect.
And, indeed, I 'utilize' -ffast-amth and -funroll-loops in make.conf. I
will remove them on the i386 machine and see, whether this succeeds.
On another box, amd64 arch, the same phenomenon occured the same time I
changed from 5.4 to 6.0. I'll report if the 'not allowed' compiler
option caused this misbehaviour.
