Created attachment 631308 [details]

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:13.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/13.0
Build ID: 20120601045813

Steps to reproduce:

Starting Firefox 13 or restarting it.


Actual results:

A Javascript popup windows comes up before Firefox starts and needs you to "ok" the error.
Firefox looks working fine after that but don't know if anytime it will cause an error again.
Everytime over and over, tried all addons disabled, new profile created, fully uninstalled and reinstalled but same error stays there.


Expected results:

No error popup before Firefox runs...

Could you look in firefox safe mode[1]. If it doens't happen there, its one of your extensions causing the popup.

Still the same.
Created a new profile, installed a newer version of Java... Same result.
java has nothing to do with Javascript only the names are similar.
I'm a little bit lost with this, maybe a DOM guy has an idea ?

@Boris
Empty page. No web page assigned.

@Alex
Sorry?
Hmm.  So _something_ is trying to acess globalStorage.  It's not your homepage.  You said it's not an extension, and it sure isn't our browser UI.  I wonder what it is....

I think I've fixed it but do not know how.

I've got FF16 Nightly, Waterfox13 and FF13 installed at the same time.
Uninstalled Nightly and Waterfox, popup gone.
But don't know what caused this.

It is causing a failure in Samsung Caster when using Firefox 13 (http://www.samsungapps.com/caster.html). It cant be RESOLVED if you search in google a lot of persons will be claiming about it.

NOT WORKING YET, test in Linux too
