Conflict with OpenOffice Writer

Whenever Firefox is open, OpenOffice Writer 3.3.0 Build: 9567 will not open an existing document. It simply hangs with an hourglass icon displayed, as if waiting for some event which never comes. As soon as I close Firefox, Writer will open. It will open an empty document. And once started, it will then allow me to open an existing document from the File Menu.
