I assume you've done the obvious things like trying a completely
clean, plugin free install of Firefox 3.6 and, unless the CMS is
completely specific to the site, checked to see if any other sites
that use the same CMS are also experiencing problems?  Have you

whether any of the changes that have been made might be breaking your

Not that a delay in pushing Firefox isn't a good idea if there were
any issues, but I suspect that a little more supporting evidence than
