Firefox wakes up serval times a second as someone used PR_TicksPerSecond()/4 instead of PR_INTERVAL_NO_TIMEOUT
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run firefox
2. run intel powertop
it wakes up serval times a second which wakes up the CPU from C3 in C0 and thus causes useless power-consumption on my laptop
while doing nothing, it should not wake up but allow the cpu to went into C3-state

Created attachment 122427 [details, diff]
this patch fixed the behaviour (at least on 188.8.131.52 as in current portage-tree) , just put it into the patch-tarball of firefox...
works fine for me
