What about if you use Internet Explorer? You may want to post this question in the Firefox forums.

Hope this helps.

I'm having the same problem.  The platform update also gets automatically installed with IE 10.  I'm now looking into how to uninstall the update.  I have only noticed the issue in Firefox.  Chrome and IE do not appear to have the problem.

I too  have this problem in Firefox, and am curious if anyone has gotten an answer other than rolling back the update - again - which also likely will roll back IE 10 to IE 9 - again.
