The difference is that the mozilla binaries are built against GTK+ 3, whereas
the Debian 45esr binaries are built against GTK+ 2. I don't know whether that in
itself causes the bug that you reported.

What about your 52 builds? Were those built against GTK+ 2 or 3?

I am building 52.1esr on wheezy now [1], which will be built against GTK+ 3 when
we upload it (45esr is now discontinued, so we'll upload 52esr with the next
round of updates in about three weeks). I'll test it and see if that helps.


[1] I had a build around, but removed it on a quest to free some disk space.
