I wonder whether this might be related to gtk-qt-engine. Reasons for

My firefox worked all right on hardy with KDE 3.5.
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=5739519 however mentions the
issue on hardy with KDE 4.1. So KDE 4.1 might be somehow involved.

The backtrace mentions quite a lot of QT 4 methods.

My firefox had general problems with widgets; the tabs lost their frames
after a mouse over highlight, the scrollbars would occasionally display
only half a knob, and after scrolling I had a high chance of widgets
within the page getting rendered with no border. All of this went away
when I changed my GTK engine.

I've changed my GTK engine to Raleigh, and so far things seem to work.
The problem is that with seemingly random failures, you can never be
sure that the issue is really resolved.
