Error dialog after clicking on "Release notes" button at step 1 of the Ubiquity installer

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

When I click on the "Release notes" button at step 1 of the Ubuntu 9.04 ubiquity installer, Firefox starts but I get the following error dialog on top:

"An error ocurred while loading or saving configuration information for firefox. Some of your configuration settings may not work properly."

The dialog has a "Details" button. If I click on it, the following error message appears repeated five times:

"Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See for information. (Details - 1: Failed to get connection to session: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.)"

THE BUG IS ONLY REPRODUCIBLE WHEN I SELECT "INSTALL UBUNTU" AT BOOT. If I select "Try Ubuntu without any change to your computer" and then click on "Install" desktop icon, the error dialog does NOT show.

I attach an screenshot to illustrate the problem.

I am able to reproduce a similar error with Alpha 2 DVD image. Clicking on the Release notes give:

"Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded it may be missing or inaccessible" error and it does not show up.
