Done some testing.

This bug is also present in the Linux version:
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.1.6) Gecko/20061201 Firefox/2.0.0.6 (Ubuntu-feisty)

But it doesn't appear on nightly build:
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9a8pre) Gecko/2007090704 Minefield/3.0a8pre
from
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-trunk/firefox-3.0a8pre.en-US.linux-i686.tar.bz2
