You are right that this was a dbus problem. However,

1. firefox-esr, and most likely also earlier versions of mainline firefox,
don't use dbus for opening URLs in running instances. This can be verified by
testing without dbus running or by watching dbus-monitor.

2. The firefox port doesn't make sure that the machine is ready for running
dbus (mainly by running "dbus-uuidgen --ensure"), and does not mention dbus in
the pkg-message.

3. firefox can be built without the DBUS option, how will this work then?
