Excellent clue, thanks.  The problem was not a plugin, but rather an add-on :-/

When I download and run the nightly builds from mozilla I never install any
plugins for my brief tests -- but just now when I looked at about:plugins I
noticed an add-on that I'd installed for converting video formats in real time.

The bit that confused me is that the add-on was installed in my ~/.mozilla
directory instead of the firefox/plugins directory, so it was still messing
things up even when running the nightly builds "with no plugins".

The probability of encountering mysterious screw-ups gets closer to 1 with
every passing day :)
