 The bug persists with firefox 8.
 Also, while I thought it did not happen with 7.0.1_{1,2}, I realised  
 that it did not happen with my previously built packages, but that  
 once I recompiled them, the bug affected them as well.
 This probably means that a port upgrade in the mean time must have  
 broken something.
 Moreover, I also have some errors with other plugins (vimperator gives  
 works, but has bugs that say "InternalError: too much recursion",  
 zotero makes firefox loop and never show up when the browser is  
 I therefore guess that the problem is different from what I expected.
 It's possible that the issue is in fact in the JavaScript engine,  
 triggered by a broken dependency in my build, but I don't have time to  
 "portupgrade -rf firefox"...
 I think that this bug report can thus be closed (but since it's not  
 solved, I'm willing to hear how to to rebuild *only* the ports  
 necessary for the javascript engine of firefox, rather than all the  
 218 packages that firefox it depends on...)
 This is not a signature.
