I'm using Firefox as default browser in 12.04.1 LTS. Whenever I'm using the bookmarks-lens or the web-hitory-lens of the Unity Dash to open a bookmark in Firefox, pulldown-menus on websites don't get opened and the autofill finctionality is lost. Closing and re-launching Firefox makes everything work fine again. Has anybody encountered this issue and knows a solution?

Thanks in advance! Sascha

I believe this may be the same bug you are experiencing

If you want to check there it appears it's been confirmed. Although I do not see a current fix or workaround.

Thanks, now I can be sure it's not due to a misconfiguration on my system. – speter Aug 28 '12 at 8:38
