I've been testing my extension with the released version of Firefox 0.9
for Linux and in one of my tests I get the following message:
"A script on this page is causing mozilla to run slowly. If it
continues to run, your computer may become unresponsive. Do you want to
abort the script?"
If I press cancel each time this comes up, eventually my script
finishes. Is there a way to disable this? I tried setting the preference
dom.max_script_run_time to 600 (was originally 5) but no effect.
Alternatively, is there an explicit thread yield type function in
test case is a bit excessive, manipulating 400+ KB of a string, but it
is a possible case when using my extension.
