Firefox 17 - quakelive doesn't start Initial screen is OK, but on joining an arena the screen is not updated. See the bug in the url above for details on the bugzilla. Please can you put firefox-16.0.2 back in the tree until this is resolved upstream (by either mozilla or id)!
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Emerge firefox-17*
2. Goto http://www.quakelive.com/
3. Login and join an arena
Window in quakelive screen freezes
Join the arena and play!
I don't expect anything to be fixed, as the problem is upstream with either quakelive or firefox. If you put firefox-16.0.2 back in the tree, I'll close this bug when the problem is fixed.

Have you tried 16.0.2 again to see whether that actually fixes it for you?
Yes. I installed 17 as part of the normal system update, then identified the problem. I returned to 16.0.2, and everything worked OK. 16.0.2 was taken out of the tree, and 17.0-r1 added. I tried this version before posting the bug, in case the problem was solved in going from 17.0 to 17.0-r1.
dom.ipc.plugins.enabled set to false as your work around, plugin breakage for a game does not trump security for any reason.
Thanks Jory - that worked. Please close this bug!
I will leave bug open while we figure it out upstream.
As I can not decompile source without violating the license there is nothing I can do except refer you to upsteam for plugin. It will be for them to fix.
Thanks Jory - I expected that to be the outcome. At least the workaround is documented here and in the forum so anyone else finding this problem can use it.
