I've found that this only happens if you run Galeon as root.  Try
uninstalling Galeon and all your Mozilla packages, and to be safe, do an
'rm -fr /usr/lib/mozilla*'

Then reinstall galeon and the moz packages, and do NOT NOT NOT run
Galeon as root.  (what're you doing running a browser as root, anyhow?
:-)

This fixed that problem for me.

Good luck,
