Cannot access evternal hard drives in Kubuntu 14.04

FF in general is pretty isolated from Kubuntu, so I doubt it's connected
directly. More likely there was another update together with the FF
update, causing the problem. That said I can't reproduce your problems
on my 14.04 install. Connecting to external (USB) HD's works fine as
does maximizing the DL Screen of FF (and keeping it maximized).
Some more information would've been useful. You mentioned an external
Harddrive, but not how you connect to it (USB, Firewire, E-SATA, LAN,
etc.) Same for the SD chip. I assume you have some sort of a reader for
it? Is that internal, connected by USB?

It seems to have happened around the time I upgraded from Fire Fox 45.0.2 to Fire Fox 46. Admittedly FF 46 came with some odd changes (not being able to maximize permanently the download screen for instance) but this is ridiculous. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this problem?
