Can confirm the reported behaviour, not sure if that's a bug. Do other programs do that?

Just adding my two cents to elaborate: I believe this is related to something along these lines:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=448291
which appears to have been fixed in a recent upgrade.  (sorry for the lack of info here-- this bug which I reported was never queued, and yet the issue is gone)
