Re: firefox52 quits on netbsd-9 w/i915drmkmsfb


  $ ssh -X user@localhost
  $ firefox52 > /dev/null 2>&1 &

and the problem sites don't tickle the i915drmkms/intel driver's sensitive
spot that makes firefox52 suddenly quit.

I've been using an alternate username for this.  Perhaps I can set up an
alternate profile to run two simultaneous instances of firefox52 as my
normal user?  Haven't tried that before.

(X11-forwarding otherwise represents too much of a performance hit for
using video sites, so need an instance running directly to avoid this.
Maybe do the other way around--all non-video stuff through X11-forwarding
and a separate instance running directly only for using video sites.)
