I've dropped this one - * Firefox people say its Firebug's problem; * Firebug reckon its Firefox see http://groups.google.com/group/firebug/browse_thread/thread/cbd7ca92130e4954# and reckon its to do with Weave Bug #568256 Reckon buck passing between developers is a good way to make sure it won't get fixed so I'll stay out of it.
weave is a Mozilla.org addon for Firefox. bug 568256 is a bug in this weave addon and got fixed in weave (and not in Firefox!). It's possible that they have the same issue in Firebug an they have to fix that in Firebug.
