Congratulations on the new release!

I'm trying out rel-2.0.0 and running into interesting issues on Firefox 28 on Ubuntu Precise:

* "ipython notebook" launches the dashboard in Firefox as expected
* "New notebook" creates a new notebook and opens a tab for it, but the page is blank and the notebook does not show up as "running"
* Opening an existing notebook or creating a new one in Chromium _does_ render the notebook and _does_ list it in the "running" tab
* Even after launching a notebook in Chromium, it still doesn't render in Firefox

Version details:

* I'm using IPython rel-2.0.0 and Tornado v3.2.0 from git (both installed via "python setup.py install --user")
* All other IPython dependencies should be current Ubuntu Precise versions
* Browsers are up-to-date from Ubuntu Precise:

* Firefox has NoScript, allowing (I see the same behavior when allowing scripts globally)

Thought I'd check the list for obvious fixes before opening an issue.
