FF-info.json

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.12; rv:57.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/57.0
Build ID: 20170829100404

Steps to reproduce:

1. Use Firefox Nightly with a bunch of opened tabs.
2. Switch to / login as another operating system user without logging off.
3. switch back users and try to interact with Firefox


Actual results:

Content is not responding to clicks.
Switching tabs is also not possible.
Quitting Firefox, reopening it and restoring the session makes it work again.


Expected results:

It should be interactive, just like before switching users.

I tried to reproduce it step-by-step, but it worked this time. Some time later I had the problem again. Maybe it is caused by a specific action done by the second OS-user. Anyways, if I find out more accurate steps to reproduce it reliably, I'll post them here.
thanks

I have tested this issue on latest Nightly build, and could not reproduce it. When you find a more accurate STR please post them.

Thank you
