Do you happen to have no-script enabled? Some pages rely too much in js
and break in various ways without even a tiny bit of it.

I suggest creating a new temporary profile (firefox -P, create it under
/tmp), and test the site there, if it works, then the problem is in your
profile (most likely in your extensions, but possibly on cache), else
its a bug between the site and firefox.
