LISP is from Tao. That's why it is not easy to people.

Well i cannot produce the problem on my desktop -- FreeBSD
8.0-RELEASE. And for now, actually i can't launch firefox because my
memory is so low (256M). Instead i use epiphany, which play well under
low memory system. Then your -RELEASE version and default GUI
environment(eg., KDE, GNOME)?
Or i'd like to say that you should take to report as bug by send-pr.
