I'm still getting hammered by this bug and only one other person has noticed and commented on it so far.

<https://bugzilla.mozilla.…rg/show_bug.cgi?id=424337>

It is rather serious, requiring a browser restart every few hours of usage, and release day is tomorrow.

I'm hoping with more widespread use, this bug will finally get some attention. Good luck everyone!
