If his FF is auto-updating, the problem has nothing to do with his PC being infected, since the update can only come from Mozilla.
A lot of folks are having v3 issues. I always wait a few months before upgrading any app, time to let the dev's work out the bugs.
If you want to revert to v2, and sit until patches are done:
Revert back to v2
Disconnect your PC from the net physically (disconnect, power off modem, etc),
Open up FF
Click the Stop button
In the upper bar, go tools/options, advanced tab, then Update tab within that.
Uncheck Auto update.
Reconnect the net connection, and rock and roll
That will be $37,842 (eh, times are hard ya know !!)
