It appears that the code in your avatar is tripping the parser in Firefox which possibly could be a bug in Firefox.
A testament to this is the fact that it worked with IE, which was smart vs going to the extent of reinstalling Windows or reflashing your motherboard
To isolate the file as the issue with Firefox, you might want to try another avatar file/ jpg with Firefox for yuks and see what happens.
Then if it doesn't display the error, we know it's the avatar file.
I would Submit a bug report to Firefox and let them figure out why it works with IE and not with Firefox.
