No, it's definitely a bug related to Fedora's patching of Firefox. I was
getting the same thing, but only with the Fedora package version of Firefox;
when I installed the official version from mozilla.com
, the problem went
away. It's definitely something that Firefox is doing, because most of the

That shouldn't happen, I'd report that as a bug. Just for
