I have mac 10.6.8 and Firefox 14.0.1 . When i open the sites on firefox, my system.log file size get about 25 to 40GB or more each day and mac shows "Your Startup Disk is Full" error...this is what appear on console:

Jul 25 14:21:06 Vishwa-Mac-Pro [0x0-0x30030].org.mozilla.firefox[320]: Wed Jul 25 14:21:06 Vishwa-Mac-Pro.local plugin-container[398] <Error>: unknown error code: invalid pixel format

These messages get more frequent when i open sites like gmail or aol or such kind of big sites.

How to resolve this issue? How can i downgrade firefox?

Thanks in advance.
