---------------------------------[ Triage Comment ]---------------------------------

Marking this as tracking to make sure the stopgap sticks for aurora9 and beta 8 and of course works as desired (fixing bug 692260).This is a large support issue in Firefox 7 where it regressed.

Bug 683280 tracks the real fix on mozilla-central / Firefox 10.
Is there something QA can do to verify this fix?

We've had trouble reproducing it, but users who are affected can generally repro it quickly.  So you could try to contact users who are having the issue on SUMO and see if having them set the pref to 48 fixes it for them.  And/or just monitor the forums (or talk to the SUMO folks who monitor the forums) to see if this workaround seems to be working for everyone who encounters this issue.
Not specifically verifiable by QA based on comment 4. CCing Cww on this bug to see if SUMO can help.
