Firefox no longer loads correctly when svg.enabled is set to false. Worse yet, once done it cannot be undone since the browser doesn't load.

This is because browser.xul is using svg.

Either the pref should be hacked (and the logic checking for the pref) or the browser needs to be updated correctly.
This has been happening for a __long__ time already.

Happened sometime between alpha 1 and alpha 5.

So this is not tabbrowser related, right?

Not directly, but I hate throwing things into Firefox:General.
We should remove the pref.
