    What's your distro ? Did you install it as root? Check the permission of above file ..
    ls -l /opt/firefox-3.6/firefox/

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    It sounds like you have a corrupted library. Try reinstalling or updating the xulrunner package on your system.

    firefox crashes frequently

    Next time it occurs, before reinstalling the ...-bin and files, run a find / -name xxxxx to see if they exists somewhere else then you need only create a link.
    I found this:
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 44680 2010-06-23 22:49 /usr/lib/firefox-3.5.2/firefox-bin and
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 15885800 2010-06-27 05:12 /usr/lib/firefox-3.5.2/ on my distro.
    I am running 3.6.6 but the sizes "might" be interesting to check once re-installed.
    FWIW I write down what I install as I install a distro (usually). This can be useful at times too.

    Of course you could always switch to Chromium or one of the other browsers, or try the new 4.0 Firefox.
