In Firefox 18 and 19, the buttons to expand / contract the news items on http://news.google.com/ are no longer work (and some no longer show up).
A similar issue was (supposedly) fixed as referenced in this thread:
But the fix (and workarounds) do not seem to work.
The problem persists after restarting in safe mode.

The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.
To Reset Firefox do the following:
- Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
- Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
- Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
- Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.
Further information can be found in the Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings article.

Thanks; I forgot about that option.
After a reset and slowly restoring my previous settings I tracked it down to having:
network.cookie.lifetimePolicy set to 1
which seems odd, but it's working again.
