The leap second bug

I had to disable various extensions to slay the memory leaks that were driving Firefox up to the 10-12GB range on me regularly. GC would regularly insert 3+ second pauses and run up the soft-fault count. (At least, I assume that's what it was doing... I had soft-fault counts in the billions.)

This has been going on for several years, but is getting less common on recent versions (I am now running the Aurora versions everywhere, so my 'recent' may be newer than your 'current' :-)
