My Ubuntu 12.04 Desktop offered me some updates today, after installing them, my Firefox start to act weird

The scroll bar on some pages doesn't work, and some pages the input boxes don't work.

All other things in the browser works fine. I can mark text on pages, plugins like flash and java applets runs and i can close the browser fine.

Here is some dist-upgrade logs

Were you running Firefox when you did the updates this morning? If so have you restarted Firefox? Have your rebooted you computer since the updates?
I did the updates this morning and I am also running the 64bit version and everything is working find.

I would try completely removing it and them reinstall it. I found sometime this is the easy way to fix things when things go wrong.

I have similar problem. If You have installed "Translate This!" extension then try to switch it off or uninstall it.

This helped me.
