Bug Description

I installed the new WebApps feature and changed a lot of stuff that the installation required. While I was trying it, I noticed that Firefox crashed every time I opened the HUD. I uninstalled the WebApps thing following the instructions in their PPA

sudo apt-get install ppa-purge
sudo ppa-purge ppa:webapps/preview

But the problem is still there. I think Unity got updated to a test version but it didn't downgrade to the previous version after uninstalling the ppa (as some other programs did).

Obviously, what I expected to happen was the HUD to work and Firefox not to crash.

For me this happens even on an empty page. Just have to keep alt pressend and then type random letters into the hud.
