Repeating post from bug #1659988

Thomas,

I believe I was already on FF 51.0.1, but after my Session Manager addon
updated to 0.8.1.13, I began having the issue where everything from the
Internet would display as black and white rectangles. I believe this
happened immediately, but I can't be sure as I was chasing a separate
problem at the time with gmail servers that appears to be a DNS issue
(very long traceroute times).

I applied the patch as you described for usr.bin.firefox_patched in post
#21, and FF began working again. Thanks for the work you put into the
patch!

Reporting the patch is a fix for this bug (1643200)

Using:
Trusty
System76 gazp9 laptop
FF 51.0.1
Session Manager 0.8.1.13

Thomas, as you suggested in 1659988, the Session Manager addon added
multiprocess support, i.e. E10s, in the latest version.  Apparently,
that was the last thing blocking E10s from being enabled, and once it
was, I experienced this bug.

Hopefully, someone will post here when this is resolved and the patch
you wrote can be removed.

Thanks again!
