Everytime I start my laptop and FF3, I get this alert message:

Could not initialize the application's security components. The most likely cause is problems with the files in your application's profile directory. Please check that this directory as no read/write restrictions and your hard drive is not full or close to full. It is recommend that you exit the application and fix the problem. If you continue to use this session, you might not see incorrect application behavioral when accessing security features.

When I go on Facebook, login in my Yahoomail, or log onto Ebay, I get this message:

Secure Connection Failed
An error occurred during a connection to
Can't connect securely because the SSL protocol has been disabled.
(Error code: ssl_error_ssl_disabled)

Can anyone help me here?

How do I use that feature? I've had bookmarks lost before a few times on FF. .
You can download it from Here

Just run the wizard and follow the screens
