Awesome!!! That was it. Thanks.

I hope google snatches this up; I know I wasted 4-6 hours over the past 
year trying to work this out. When it first popped up it was only 
happening on an app I was private-beta'ing. THen I saw it on FF3 when it 
was released and realized it wasn't app-specific.

I guess the package I installed earlier in the year rearranged that line 
or something to that affect.

Thanks again!
