New iceweasel (10.0.2-1+alpha) is worse than its predecessor: it consumed
enough resources while running around in tight little circles that I had
to switch from my KDE4 session to a virtual console, login, and kill it.
Before, I could at least click on a kconsole window to make it active,
then kill iceweasel *that* way.  As before, CPU time on the iceweasel
process was increasing in lock-step with wall time.

I might try one of my monolithic firefox builds with the latest released
source tree in the next few days, just to see if that makes any difference.
