Additional tests I performed:
- stable Firefox under ratpoison - new tab is opened
- nightly Firefox with new profile - nothing happens
It used to work fine about 2 or 3 weeks ago.

Perhaps related to the switch to GTK3 that happened around that time? https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/mozilla.dev.platform/9uYM-c2Guhg
You can test by trying out the builds before/after that change and/or trying the recent GTK2 builds.

If I'm wrong, finding a more specific regression window would help troubleshoot this: http://mozilla.github.io/mozregression/

Wow, this mozregression is cool :)
Anyway the last good nightly build is 2015-07-22, the first bad is 2015-07-23.

Here is the changeset from the last inbound build 939320b957c5

Great. This does look close to us switching to GTK3 - do you have any idea how this could be relevant?

IIRC, mozregression should give you the link of the form http://hg.mozilla.org/integration/mozilla-inbound/pushloghtml?fromchange=XXXaab43b65d4&tochange=XXX14f0f3b03 (or two csets - the last good and the last bad one). Could you paste it here?

I guessed correctly:
> Mike Hommey — Bug 1186003 - Switch automated builds to Gtk+3. r=mshal

I have no idea how this causes the problem you're seeing...

I can try to ask at ratpoison maillist, maybe some developers can have a look..

I asked at the ratpoison mail list and the issue does not seem to exist in 32-bit FF, but it was confirmed by another user in 64-bit FF and also in some other window manager (StumpWM).
