Steps to reproduce:

METHOD 1:

1. Open Console
2. Enter this JS:

while(true){ var foo=window.open("http://example.com"); }

3. Executing this will :

+ hang the whole firefox process.
+ Make all Closing options unusable except Task Manager
+ Use 1.5 GB Ram!

METHOD 2:

1. Go to example.html attached.
3. visiting this html will :

+ hang the whole firefox process.
+ Make all Closing options unusable except Task Manager

Actual results:

2. it was using 1.5 GB of Memory
3. i had to end it using TAsk amager but obviousle **many** don't know how to handle this.


Expected results:
