Confirmed.
I would have expected there to be a bug on this already, but I'm not finding anything. (May have just missed it?)

Expect that ever since there was a context-menu item, "Search ___ for ___" that this bug has existed? Composer affected likewise.

The error probably comes from: contentAreaContextOverlay.xul

Same problem in SeaMonkey Composer (what might be the core of the problem?)
