Public bug reported:

After I successfully log into Gmail (http://mail.google.com) via Firefox
and the page has finished loading, I begin receiving the following error
message continuously in the Javascript Console:

Error: malformed Unicode character escape sequence
Source File: javascript:yj_api0_DoFSCommand('msg','%5B%22%5Cu0NaN%5Cu0NaN%5Cu0NaN%5Cu0NaN%5Cu0NaN%5Cu0NaN%5Cu0NaN%5Cu0NaN%5Cu0NaN%5Cu0NaN%5Cu0NaN%5Cu0NaN%5Cu0NaN%5Cu0NaN%5Cu0NaN%5Cu0NaN%22%2C%22%5Cu0NaN%5Cu0NaN%5Cu0NaN%5Cu0NaN%5Cu0NaN%5Cu0NaN%5Cu0NaN%5Cu0NaN%5Cu0NaN%5Cu0NaN%22%2C%5B%22%5Cu0NaN%5Cu0NaN%5Cu0NaN%5Cu0NaN%5Cu0NaN%5Cu0NaN%22%5D%5D')
Line: 1, Column: 26
Source Code:

This does not seem to effect the functionality of Gmail itself but, as
stated prior, it continually adds to the console until I close the tab
(making web development difficult).

I have used Chromium and did not receive the error.  I have used FF on a
Windows machine and did not receive the error. This leads me to believe
that it is the specific combination of Gmail + FF + Ubuntu.
