Which Ubuntu release are you running?
Meanwhile Firefox version 47.* has been published, can you upgrade to this version, and do you still see the same behavior?

Hye Manfred,

using Ubuntu 14.4.3 , also upgraded Firefox 47.0.1 i still see the same behaviour.

The last action in Bug #1577043 was requesting input from the original reporter.
I do not know whether there will be any further work on that bug before the requested information is provided.

Do you know whether this problem has also been reported elsewhere (e.g. Mozilla or Debian bug trackers)?

Only place i know and i have seen this problem reported is the below link

Ubuntu is taking over the firefox software from Mozilla and just does packaging to make it installable with the Ubuntu tools.
If there is a bug in the software, then this is something that has to be worked on by Mozilla.
Only if the misbehavior is caused by the Ubuntu modifications, then it is a task for Ubuntu.

In my opinion the next step must be to better describe the problem (I doubt that the information currently available in Bug #1577043 is sufficiently detailed), identify whether it is an Ubuntu-private problem, and (if not) report it in the firefox bug tracker at Mozilla.

How to identify if it is Ubuntu problem, can you please give me some hints?

Is the same problem visible in firefox on other operating systems?

NO , for other Linux flavors its working fine.

Can you help with this problem?
