Comment 1 Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2013-01-16 06:39:01 UTC
Note:

Upstream bug comments suggests that Mozilla does not plan to address this issue in the short term. This seems to affects the version of Firefox shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6, and also Fedora.

Closing this bug as WONTFIX currently.
