Well to quote a recent bug ping "The most annoying bug I know... It
happened to nearly everyone I know." is bug 482811, which is dependent
on core bug 476541, and has hope for a fix in active bug 729720.
There is a proposed TB workaround, but the last official word on that
(14 months and 44 comments earlier) is:
"we believe it is a core issue and needs resolving there. We will
however be seeing if we can help drive the core issue forward."
