I had found this bug some days before the release but I havn't tested any build during the beta phase. I only checked this behavior with Fx2b1 and Minefield. See my bugreport: <https://bugzilla.mozilla.…rg/show_bug.cgi?id=344859>. It was my fault that no-one has found it, because I put it in Firefox/General instead of Core/Plugins. But there is nothing to change now. For future I will immediately use Moznet to exchange information.
