Another Firefox 3.5 Solution

After following several thread and bug reports from many Linux distribution about Firefox 3.5, i found that there are several options to fix Firefox 3.5 problems, which won't load anything. Here they are:
  1. Make a wrapper script for Firefox 3.5 and put this line on it: LD_PRELOAD=/lib/libc.so.6 /path/to/firefox (this is the proposed solution which should make libsafe is usable for other application while Firefox should start normally)
  2. Comment libsafe entry in /etc/ld.so.preload. (This will disable libsafe, which i think is not the best way to solve things, as libsafe is proven to be stable enough)
  3. Remove libsafe (it should be the last option if any other options failed)
