This test touches the network to load a Flash file: <>.  It happened today that there were some DNS issues on, which caused the crashtest suite to fail to unload.  I will file another bug about why this happened in the first place, but I'm disabling this test for now, to be able to reopen the tree.

I filed bug 616088 for the underlying issue.
There's no bug on fixing and re-enabling the test, is there? Reopening to track this properly.

Actually, this probably doesn't need bug 616088, it looks like the test just needs to use a local rather than a remote resource.
No longer depends on: 616088
Ouch. Thanks for tracking that down! I can't believe we still have tests that hit the network. :-/
Sorry about that!!!!!!
All we need to do to reenable the test is to replace <embed src=""> with <embed type="application/x-test">.

We also need to do that on 1.9.2 and 1.9.1, where we're still merrily hitting
Err, 1.9.2, since the test isn't on 1.9.1.

And back out again in since unreasonable though this is, bug 629851 happened on all three platforms, and I didn't have a lot of choices other than to back out a crashtest change to see if that will fix a failure in a mochitest. Shrug.
And back in again in, since it wasn't actually at fault.
The "3.6.15" we're releasing today does not fix this bug, the release containing this bug fix has been renamed to "3.6.16" and the bugzilla flags will be updated to reflect that soon. Today's release is a re-release of 3.6.14 plus a fix for a bug that prevented many Java applets from starting up.
