Bug Description

when you attempt to press the back button in firefox, its location is so close to the launcher bar that it toggles the laucher to extend/jump out.

im not sure how to address this other than

1. changing the location of the back button in firefox.
2. Creating zones so that when the firefox window is open, that the event to extend the launcher is of less priority, or it doesnt extend at all from that zone/location.
3. when the settings for the launcher are installed by default users could extend the amount of time your mouse has to remain in the location for the launcher bar to extend.

Yes this is very annoying. Personally I would like to be able to move the Unity launcher to the bottom of the screen as this also happens with a lot of other programs.
