It's hardly a firefox problem.

Blank screen in Joomla occurs when:

1) There is no index.php defined as default handler in Apache
To fix it: rename htaccess.txt (in the Joomla root installation folder) to .htaccess

2) Configuration is missing.
To fix it: rename confituration.php-dist to configuration.php

3) _JEXEC_ is not defined in index.php (check that all incude directories and files are in place and available for reading by Apache user)

If this doesn't help or you have further questions - ask me.
