while there's definitly some value in tracking down your problems, let
me throw in another option. Are you aware of the Firefox contributed
builds (e.g. [1])? We use them internally at our company, although
almost all of the other applications that we use stem from the OpenCSW

Firefox is a beast of a software and with the contributed build we
simply extract the most recent tarball (usually not much behind the
official release) in a shared NFS dir - an approach which has worked
very fine for us so far.
