Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

Firefox 2 had the ability to detect an infinite loop in Javascript, with
a popup saying "There is an unresponsive script on this page" and giving
you the option to "Continue" or "Stop Script". In Firefox 3, either this
feature has been removed or does not work properly.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Write a page with an infinite loop in Javascript
2. Open page in Firefox 3

Process hangs, requiring manual shutdown.

Unresponsive script popup as per Firefox 2, allowing the script to be stopped without killing the firefox process.

** Affects: firefox-3.0 (Ubuntu)
     Importance: Undecided
