You should reset all the prefs via the Save mode start window or create a new profile if your current profile is from using Firefox 1.5 that your user agent shows to remove all remnants.
You have a corrupted user agent that identifies you as
- Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:126.96.36.199) Gecko/20070312 Firefox/188.8.131.52
In Firefox 4 you can use one of these to start in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode:
- Help > Restart with Add-ons Disabled
- Hold down the Shift key while double clicking the Firefox desktop shortcut (Windows)
You can transfer some files from the old profile to that new profile (be careful not to copy corrupted files)
