Not for me. I've only the one machine, so my firefox is always built on
the system on which it runs, and I still see intermittent segfaults. I
*think* they correlate with playing either HTML5 video (which mostly
works, except when it kills the browser) or pages with long-running or
demanding scripts. Of course, those could just be two things that stress
the memory management more than usual. I haven't yet found a recipe for
reproducibly triggering a fault, nor have I found the time to rebuild
everything with debug symbols to get a meaningful backtrace.

Is there any information online about what problems are
expected/known with the new electrolysis code? It would be useful to
check whether we're running into a known issue or seeing something
pkgsrc/NetBSD specific.
