I read your message too late.
Here's what I did to solve the problem:
I opened firefox in safe mode, and disabled all add-ons (video 
downloadhelper, foxweather, adblock, tubestop, trackmenot).
I also disabled all plugins.
And that fixed the problem.
Next, I proceeded to enable all the plugins that I needed (adobe reader, 
the gecko media player for all media types, ..etc)
Next I re-installed the add-ons mentioned above.
and re-started firefox in normal mode.

All is well now.

Thanx to all who responded.
