It seems that this bug only occurs when trying to launch the simulator, i've tried to push an app on an actual device and it worked without any exceptions.

Here is a workaround: if you run Firefox from the DMG file without installing it, you'll be able to run the simulator, and push to a phone without any problem. Even if you already have a installed version on your computer, it will work: it will just use your actual default profile.

The 1.2 simulator seems to launch fine from the App manager in Firefox 26 ( soon to be in Beta ) - is this also an acceptable workaround?

I'm able to run 1.3 simulator via about:app-manager on Fx 26 also.
