The bug is <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=67127>.

The workaround is to avoid carriage returns in your title
attributes.  If you're doing something scriptomatically, it should
be pretty easy to avoid (just don't put in any newlines and don't
wrap the text later!).  If you're coding by hand, you usually get
it to work by putting the ``title="<string>"'' on its own line
(i.e., breaking the line just before the title attribute).
