Please save your bookmarks then remove your $HOME/.mozilla/firefox

To do this open a terminal from Appl.->Accessories->Terminale and type:

rm -fr $HOME/.mozilla/firefox

Then restart Firefox

If this don't resolve your issue plase copy and paste the result of:

dpkg -l | grep -i firefox


Thank you

Is it because I installed ubuntu via Wubi??

Now I fully installed fresh Ubuntu from a CD but I have the same problem?

Not only with Fx 3 also with Epiphany Opera and Fx through Wine.
