Hey Steven. The 3.6.4 release will be coming out soon, so we'd like to add a blurb to the features page to provide some basic info.

The blurb should go in the Performance section - ideally towards the top, but I'll leave it up to your best judgment how to shift things around to make it all fit.

Here's the text:

Out of Process Plugins
Firefox provides uninterrupted browsing for Windows and Linux users when there is a crash in the Adobe Flash, Apple Quicktime or Microsoft Silverlight plugins. If one of these commonly-used plugins crashes or freezes, it won't affect the rest of Firefox. Instead, you can simply reload the page to restart the plugin and try again. (_Learn more about plugins_.)

(the learn more link can point here: https://www.mozilla.com/en-US/plugincheck/index.html#what-plugin)

Although the exact date is still in flux, 3.6.4 is coming out soon, so a quick turnaround on this would be much appreciated. Thanks!
Looks great to me, thanks Steven. We can sit tight on this for now...will need to push it when 3.6.4 goes live.
One more small note...headline should now read Crash Protection (instead of Out of Process Plugins).

Thanks!

Done in trunk in r67597.
The link "Learn more about plugins" is 404 Not Found.

"<?=$lang?>/plugincheck/index.html#what-plugin" should be
"/<?=$lang?>/plugincheck/#what-plugin"
