Hello tfe,
thanks for your bugreport. This bugreport in its current state is INVALID.
Please take a look at http://www.mozilla.org/quality/bug-writing-guidelines.html

"If you've found a bug using a Netscape-branded or Debian-branded product,
please confirm that the bug also exists in a mozilla.org build before submitting
it here."

Debian package maintainers have repeatedly applied additional patches to the
product, which caused unforeseen behaviour in the application. Therefore this
rule. Please make sure, that this also happens in a recent mozilla.org build
from http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-trunk/

If this happens again, please reopen this bug.
