The version of Firefox committed in r393690 (40.0-candidates/build4)
is not vulnerable.

Presumably this was the reason a pre-release version of Firefox 40
was committed in the first place.

You can verify it yourself.  Go and diff 39.0 and 39.0.3, then check
that the relevant change is already in 40.0/build4.
