Description Dennis Jacobfeuerborn 2008-04-22 21:10:29 EDT

This is a pretty high profile bug (declared a blocker upstream with a heavy
heart by Mike Shaver) causing xulrunner based apps like Epiphany and Firefox to
hang with 100% cpu usage and doing so for a lot of people.

A fix has just been posted to the original bug but not checked in yet but it
looks fairly safe (one-liner) and should probably be included in the F9 release
if at all possible.

Fix is available in rawhide, and I can't reproduce the problem with any of the
sites mentioned in the upstream bug.
