9.0.1 under review
I'm reviewing the single change in 9.0.1 (backout of bug 708572) to see if it applies to us, although it probably does. However, the relevant crash (bug 711794) seems to primarily affect 64-bit x86_64 and we are of course 32-bit PowerPC, and there is a definite performance impact to taking the backout. We don't support the offending toolbars implicated in the STRs in any case. Crash reports matching the signature would be strongly appreciated to allow me to make the call (please don't send other crash signatures unless you are positive they are related somehow). There is no security impact to this bug that I am aware of.
