You are actually using a very old version of Firefox that was released in 2008 (Firefox 3). Go to www.getfirefox.com and download the newest Version. Install it. How to download and install Firefox on Mac. This will update your Firefox, but keep all your bookmarks, etc.

Also, Update all your plugins (Flash, Java, etc.): http://www.mozilla.org/plugincheck/.
