[Bug 176832] Firefox freezes when navigating away from a page with video.

Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox

Whenever I navigate away from a page which is playing some form of video
firefox will occasionally freeze.  This happens regardless of how I try
to navigate away, be it closing the tab, typing in a new url, or
attempting to close firefox.  This only occurs when I navigate away from
the page while it is still playing video.

I have yet to be able to isolate or predict when this will occur,
although I do not believe it has happened the first time I open firefox,
which may indicate that it only occurs after I watch several videos.
