I just apt-upgraded a 16.04 machine to the latest packages, which
rendered firefox unusable. The firefox gui appears, but it does not show
contents of webpages, refuses a login to an unencrypted (still secure
because tunneled) webpage and blasts trillions of messages like

 [  691.871185] audit: type=1400 audit(1485603229.158:2983):
apparmor="DENIED" operation="mknod"
name="/dev/shm/org.chromium.fHVuSZ" pid=6325 comm=57656220436F6E74656E74
requested_mask="c" denied_mask="c" fsuid=1000 ouid=1000

into the log. Looks like wrong or outdated apparmor settings keep firefox from running properly.
