Made no difference. I also tried:
- uninstalling all browser plugins
- upgrading to git builds of cairo and glitz
- changing from 32 bit Gentoo to 64 bit (I was already going to anyway)

The two workarounds I've seen others mention do work for me:
- recompile cairo with glitz disabled
- switch the libGL symlinks to point to xorg's instead of the nvidia driver's

Either one lets Firefox launch. Same result with FF 3.1 beta2 and a Jan 26th trunk snapshot.
