1 Hi,
3 I'm checking that as I type.  It may not solve all my problems but it
4 may certainly help.  Some scripts make one CPU core go to 100% and locks
5 up the tab the script is running on.  Firefox, to its credit, is sane
6 enough to allow other tabs to work tho.  At least it doesn't completely
7 lock up the whole thing.  Good code I guess.  ;-)  Anyway, it does that
8 for about 30 seconds or so, I assume it times out or something.  Still,
9 very annoying and worthy of just blocking the script completely. 
11 It appears clang is disabled.  If I read that correctly, that is the
12 ideal setting.

29 P. S. Top posting since reply was also.  Could be device related.  I dunno.
