I have exactly the same problem and I am running DD-LTS. I already reported it 
twice, I switched off all extensions/themes, switched to 2.0, ... but in 
vain. Until now NO solution found. It is so annoying that I avoid firefox and 
use konqueror instead. It is very bad for one of the main softwares coming 
from OSS. It was a prominent candidate for promoting Linux but now, I do not 
dare inform my friends Windows users about this problem because they would 
laugh at me
