Bug description:
  The ubuntu bug reporting system is rather badly broken, because when I
  run ubuntu-bug/apport-bug, it gathers data, then opens a new blank
  firefox window, but does not connect to launchpad!

  The root cause is this one:
  which basically means that apport needs to invoke firefox with a different set of options.

  This should be trivial to fix, but I think it's rather important, especially given how hard it is to get a direct report into Launchpad, and all the redirects that emphasise using the ubuntu-bug tool: 

  (I'm reporting this from Ubuntu Wily, though I think I recall seeing it in Vivid)
  Apport version is:  2.17.3-0ubuntu4
