  Cannot left-click on Firefox tabs

Status in firefox package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  From Firefox, I go to another application window (say Gnome Terminal),
  then when I go back to the FIrefox window the tabs are not clickable.
  When I hover the mouse cursor on a tab, it does not highlight that
  particular tab. Right clicking on the tab, however, brings up the
  correct menu (has the tab options).

  Not sure how to replicate this bug. It seems random. Many times,
  shifting from one app window to another, then back to Firefox does not
  trigger this weird behavior. At first I thought it was related to a
  tab with Flash running in it, but it still happens without any.
