Watchers link in Issue Details screen throws JavaScript exception

When I open the details view and try to look at the list of Watchers by clicking the little number next to the Watch/Watching link on the far right side of the page, the link throws up a spinner that never goes away. If you open FireBug and look at the console errors you will see the following:

TypeError: watcherData8 is null from the file jira.webresources:viewissue.js

We are running JIRA 5.1.5 and this is occuring on Firefox 15.0.1 but not IE9 or Chrome.

Hi Sahab,

Please update your Firefox browser to v16 or 17.
