There definitely seems to be a bug in Mozilla in this area. See for
example http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=201695 (still
unconfirmed - it seems that Mozilla bug reports in this area don't even
get looked at in six months) and
http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=26182 (where they claim the
problem was fixed three years ago, but it has reappeared). Maybe there
is a fix by setting some user preferences in a special file, but there
doesn't seem to be a fix in the UI.
I'll file a new bug - done, see
http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=222777. It will be
interesting to see what response I get, if any.
