If you do not know that there is something in firefox (now 13ish) which you
must have, deinstall it and install firefox-esr (now 10ish).  Apparently
firefox is bleeding-edge and might better be called firefox-devel.  The
stable version is in firefox-esr.

I haven't found anything that is mission-critical to me that is missing from
esr.  Everything works, except the linux-flash on flowplayer sites using js,
but that is a 12ish linux-flash bug, not firefox.  Sites using flowplayer
without js work fine.
