The only thing I hate more than complaining about something I can't spend
the time to try to fix is spending time writing to justify my laziness.
:) I did try to get a stace trace before, rebuilding all of firefox with
debugging, and got a trace that indicated the problem was elsewhere with
other libraries I'd have to also go off and rebuild with debugging, and so
that cute flash animation my friends said I had to go see suddenly seemed
that much less interesting to me, and I didn't look back. This was also
on RELENG_4, and the issue appeared to be threading-related, and since
everyone was saying that threading in 4 was broken anyways and would be
fixed in 5, I punted; I just haven't had time since upgrading to 5 a few
weeks ago to look at it again.

Firefox has a double free problem wih Flash7. So I don't
support it. Please don't send me a report about firefox.
Of course, I always welcome to recieve fixed problems report.
That's kept me away from trying it.
