I've not seen the boot loop issue again, but the netbsd-8 firefox
binary still seems to issues on netbsd-9 (currently clicking into the
compose box on is enough to crash firefox).

Tested with LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1 & by moving
/usr/X11R7/lib/* away and the behaviour is unchanged.

The original panics I reported look to have been fixed by mrg's usbnet fixes :)
