I actually had a similar problem, except I use xterm. I eventually solved it
by replacing the computer and re-installing Gentoo.

I suspected it was firefox getting old and flaky. I suppose a less radical
solution would be to rename your .mozilla directory
(and any other firefoxy-config ones) and then completely purge firefox
from the system and re-install it. Then you can bring you old configs
back in a controlled way, and see which change breaks it, if you care.

(Hey, I only said it was easier than buying a new computer).
