      I have run into this issue as well,  every time it appeared to be
because one or more web developer extensions were loaded on the client and
were causing the issue.  I have not tracked it down to which ones or the
settings that seem to cause it (greesemonky, firebug, etc),  but removing
firefox and doing a fresh install nix any extensions/plugins seems to fix
