User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; fi-FI; rv:1.9.2.10) Gecko/20100922 Ubuntu/10.10 (maverick) Firefox/3.6.10
Build Identifier: 4.0~b4~20110111014946

N900 has accelerometer and Maemo5 (PR1.3) operating system send signal to applications when orientation of device is changed (i.e Portrait/Landscaped). 

Fennec has support to re-orient screen according to requests (This is easily to see when using it)
Fennec has feature to disable automatic orientation ( https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=557642 )

Disabling is done via about:config ->  "toolkit.screen.lock = true", or pressing ctrl+shift+o. Neither of these disable automatic screen orientation.



Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set about:config ->  "toolkit.screen.lock = true"
2. tilt device
(keyboard opened or closed)
Actual Results:  
Screen is oriented automatically

Expected Results:  
Screen is not oriented.

Using (shift+ctrl+o) shows nice notification:
"Screen Orientation
Locked / Unlocked"
But screen is still re-oriented when device is tilted.
Confirmed, I'm seeing this also on the latest nightly build for Maemo.
