Just in case someone still tries to investigate. As I still did fight with this 
I just did another experiment and installed the firefox nightly build (64-bit) 
from http://nightly.mozilla.org/ for comparison. It's using all the same 
settings but does not have this bug. 

And one more info - I'm using gnome 2 as desktop.

So basically I'm fine for now by switching to firefox nightly-builds, but the 
bug is still 100% reproducible here when using Iceweasel.
