Yes.  I have three computers (home, work, laptop).  All three of them
have both Firefox and OOo installed.

I would suspect that you've hit some obscure version issue.  I make it
a point to try to keep all three of these machines updated, so I'm
portupgrading them on a regular basis.  I seem to remember one point
at which I rebuilt OOo and had to rebuild firefox to get it working,
but I don't remember for sure.
