Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

I just applied new Firefox updates  at home and at work and found in
both cases that the Wordpress edit screens are totally borked. It
doesn't happen on non-Ubuntu computers, though they also don't get
updated so they may just be operating with older versions. It does
happen in multiple Wordpress installs (maintained by different people,
hosted on different servers)

I've been trying to sort out an explanation more compelling than
"wordpress is borked" but I'm not sure what is going on. Wordpress uses
a javascript "quicktags" toolbar.  I begin writing or editing and then,
poof, with no apparent trigger, the screen is gone and all that appears
in the browser window is a single row of quicktags buttons.

I'm not sure *what* is going on here. I haven't spotted strange behavior
outside of Wordpress, but this is pretty weird and pretty consistent.
