I'm not real sure WHY this is happening, but after a couple hours of screwing around with this I'm gettin' pretty frustrated. I've been reading up, and one suggestion was that it is a problem with having the "User Agent Switcher" plugin installed.
PLEASE, someone give me a potential solution if you have one. I'd go back to the older version, but I can't seem to find a copy to download.
Did you remove your previous version of Firefox? If not, try that. All of your bookmarks and settings (profile) will be retained, even if you remove the program. Your profile data is kept in
Windows/Application Data/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles, separate from the folder where Firefox is installed. So you can "completely remove" Firefox without losing them. The new version will pick them up as it installs.
Go to C:\Documents and Setting\User Name\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\
Open prefs.js using notepad or another simple text editor.
Look for the line with "general.useragent.override" in it, for example:
user_pref("general.useragent.override", "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020530");
