Matt,
Sorry for the delay in responding to your request.

There is a family of bugs that are showing up in firefox that can be
found at https://bugs.launchpad.net/firefox/+bug/74576 

We need to do more work in tracking this down... But they sometimes
occur when closing firefox after updating and/or changing the theme|
fonts.  I currently believe that it is a gtk issues.

Thanks
