User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:26.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/26.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20131206152142

Steps to reproduce:

1. Went to about:permissions
2. Entered www.google.com into the "Search sites" box


Actual results:

The response was _very_ slow (more than one minute until www.google.com was found)


Expected results:

It should have been found within a reasonable time (sub-second, ideally). Can a substring search in a database really be _that_ slow?
Works fine and fast for me on my Ubuntu 13.10 64-bit machine, with latest Aurora (build ID: 20140105004002)

Could you please try the following :

1) try this with a clean profile: http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-and-remove-firefox-profiles

2) running in Safe mode: http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-using-safe-mode
Component: Untriaged → Preferences
Problem still happens in safe-mode

Difficult to test with a clean profile, as all cookie permissions (except mozilla itself) are gone in a clean profile
