This bug was fixed in the package firefox - 11.0+build1-0ubuntu1

---------------
firefox (11.0+build1-0ubuntu1) precise; urgency=low

  * New upstream stable release (FIREFOX_11_0_BUILD1)

  * Clean up search plugin installation now that we build our own
    language packs:
    - Drop the recursive symlink from /usr/lib/firefox-addons/searchplugins,
      which lintian kept complaining about
    - Don't effectively symlink distribution/searchplugins to searchplugins,
      as they have different layouts and this avoids the same data being
      iterated over twice
    - Revert to the upstream layout in distribution/searchplugins
    - Simplify distro-locale-searchplugins.patch, as we don't need to swap the
      loading order of common / locale-specific searchplugin paths now.
      $LIBDIR/distribution/searchplugins/common is no longer a symlink
      to $LIBDIR/searchplugins, so there is no need to have the ability for
      locale-specific plugins to override common ones. They already override
      those in $LIBDIR/searchplugins
      - add debian/firefox-locale.preinst.in, which will end up in all
        language packs to assist the symlink -> folder transition
      - update debian/firefox.dirs.in
      - update debian/firefox.install.in
      - update debian/firefox.links.in
      - update debian/firefox.preinst.in
      - update debian/patches/distro-locale-searchplugins.patch
      - update debian/rules
  * Fix LP: #807733 - Firefox doesn't restart after upgrades where the version
    changes. Don't include the version number in the install path, as Firefox
    cannot re-exec itself. In doing this, we also move the distribution.ini
    back in to our installation directory, as that never made sense in
    /usr/lib/firefox-addons
    - update debian/firefox-dev.install.in
    - update debian/firefox-dev.links.in
    - update debian/firefox-locale.preinst.in
    - update debian/firefox.lintian-overrides.in
    - update debian/firefox.preinst.in
    - update debian/rules
  * Expose distribution/extensions in /usr/lib/firefox-addons, to allow
    administrators to add extensions that they want to add to default user
    profiles, and that they want the addon manager to keep updated. We lost
    this functionality when upgrading from Firefox 3.6, due to the loss of
    /etc/firefox/profile
    - update debian/firefox.dirs.in
    - update debian/firefox.install.in
    - update debian/firefox.links.in
    - update debian/firefox.postinst.in
