It has stopped failing even with the build from the Mozilla site.  I've seen this happen with this symptom once before.  As a hardware friend of mine says, "Problems that go away by themselves, come back by themselves.  

I will hold off installing the Ubuntu build unless/until I see the failure again.  

As for this bug, you can leave it open for a while or close it as unreproducible as you think appropriate.
Can't do much with that for now. Glenn feel free to reopen if it comes back
