This should be fixed in tomorrow's nightlies. Not sure this is severe enough to warrant worrying about backporting to 45/46, though.

Confirm that this issue is fixed on latest Firefox 47.0a1 (2016-02-21) under Windows 10 64-bit, Ubuntu 14.04 32-bit and Mac OS X 10.9.5.

Since this is in nightly, can the right owner mark it FIXED? I agree this is not a candidate for uplift.
