  Firefox 43.0: Downloads fail

Status in firefox package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  My firefox just got updated to 43.0. Starting with the update, all
  downloads fail. There is no file selection dialogue any more, just the
  blue arrow appears - and the downloads list says "Failed". I have
  tried the same on a clean profile with no add-ons, and downloads still

  In the browser console, I get the following error message on each download attempt:
  [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80070057 (NS_ERROR_ILLEGAL_VALUE) [nsIAnnotationService.setPageAnnotation]"  nsresult: "0x80070057 (NS_ERROR_ILLEGAL_VALUE)"  location: "JS frame :: resource://app/modules/DownloadsCommon.jsm :: onDownloadChanged :: line 735"  data: no]

  Steps to reproduce:
  Klick on any downloadable file on a website (e.g. ZIP oder PDF).

  Blue arrow appears, downloads list says "failed" below the download filename. The file will not download.

  Expected result:
  File dialogue (with appropriate settings). File being downloaded from the internet.

  Kubuntu 14.04.3 LTS
  Firefox 43.0+build1-0ubuntu0.14.04.1
