The spec recently got hard-coded limits that avoid excessive growth of the number of formatting element nodes in the DOM:
http://html5.org/tools/web-apps-tracker?from=5637&to=5638
http://html5.org/tools/web-apps-tracker?from=5641&to=5642

These limits should be implemented in Gecko.

Nominating as a blocker, since this helps deal with DoS-by-author-incompetence.
blocking2.0: --- → ?
Priority: -- → P2
blocking2.0: ? → betaN+
The new MathML-related test failure is a side effect of refreshing the html5lib test suite to what the upstream has. I filed a new bug about the new test failure. It has nothing to do with the code changes here.

This is a hardblocker, but a bugzilla caching issue makes it keep coming back up in searches incorrectly. Clearing the whiteboard.

** PRODUCT DRIVERS PLEASE NOTE **

This bug is one of 19 being moved from blocking2.0:betaN+ to blocking2.0:- as we reached the endgame of Firefox 4. The rationale for the move is:

 - the bug had been identified as a "soft" blocker which could be fixed in some follow up release
 - the bug had been identified as one requiring beta coverage, thus is not appropriate for a ".x" stability & security release

The owner of the bug may wish to renominate for .x consideration.
blocking2.0: betaN+ → .x+
Denominating, because this bug has landed already in November and keeps popping up on blocker queries due to a Bugzilla bug.
blocking2.0: .x+ → ---
