Red Hat would like to thank Gustavo Grieco for reporting this issue.

Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2015-10-02 14:10:49 UTC
I don't believe that firefox is using librsvg to parse files that are loaded from the net.

Comment 5 Matthias Clasen 2015-12-14 18:38:30 UTC
yes, I believe this was fixed by rewriting the way librsvg checks for cyclic references.
