I too have observed this problem several times.  For me, the problems occurs at every firefox upgrade.
It looks like a packaging problem.

When firefox is upgraded with apt-get, a firefox restart is required.
But *between* the upgrade and the (firefox) restart, firefox behaves
abnormally. It is not always practical to restart firefox immediately,
e.g. the user might be writing an email or filling in a form. Errors
include: assertion failed when a URL is entered in the URL bar, right
click not giving context-sensitive menus (e.g. save image when over an
image). Expected behaviour: Firefox should continue to work normally.
