Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make
Ubuntu better. We are sorry that we do not always have the capacity to
look at all reported bugs in a timely manner.

Could you please try to reproduce this issue in a clean profile (no
extensions, plugins, theme changes, etc.)? You can do this by using the

Start Firefox by entering the following command is a terminal: firefox
-ProfileManager. You should now see the Profile Manager window.

Important note: From the Profile Manager you are also able to remove and
rename profiles. Be very careful when deleting profiles, if you created
the profile in a directory that already existed, the entire directory
will be removed!

Click on the 'Create Profile...' button to start the 'Create Profile
Wizard'. Click 'Next' and enter a descriptive name for the new profile.
Click Finish to have Firefox create the new profile. You should now be
taken back to the Profile Manager and the newly created profile should
be listed. Select it and click 'Start Firefox'. Try to reproduce the bug
with this new profile.

Note: you can go back to your own profile by starting Firefox using the
command firefox -ProfileManager again, selecting your own profile, and
clicking on 'Start Firefox'.

Please let us know by comment here if this is reproducable with the
clean profile.
