Comment (by mikeperry):

 This appears to due to an error with how a script that is crucial to
 twitter's page handling is checking for/attempting to use IndexedDB (which
 we disable).

 If I set the about:config pref 'dom.indexedDB.enabled' to true, twitter
 *appears* to work much better for me. Can anyone confirm that this fixes
 all issues for them, or if any still remain?
