After installing Firefox 3.0 this morning, when opening ANY page, all hyperlinks seem dead and the button don't work. I have already found that if I click on a different window (or do Alt+Tab), everything works fine again... until I load the next page and everything starts again. It's very frustrating to have to do Alt+Tab to bring a page "to life". 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open a web page, any URL
2. the page loads, but any active link is dead
3. do Alt+Tab, or click on a different window
4. Problem solved
Can this be reproduced in a testing build, such as 3.1b2 ( or, even better, a nightly 3.1a1 (
