The clearing should happen and also the  browser window should be maintained in a responsive state as other applications.

Bug 648232 was about a similar issue, but that issue might be resolved now considering bug 648232 comment 21.

Are you able to reproduce your problem with the latest Nightly?

Build identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:9.0a1) Gecko/20110913 Firefox/9.0a1, build id: 20110913030846

Works fine for me on latest nightly.

Reporter, are you still experiencing the problem? Are you able to reproduce it on latest nightly and/or in safe mode: http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Safe+Mode ?

Thank you!
