When polling for images in the devhub that haven't been processed, there are two bugs: 1) It checks every 100 milliseconds, which is 10 times per second 2) There's a loop inside a loop, so the amount of requests doubles each time. Between the two, the browser ends up doing thousands of requests per second per image. Or at least, it tries to- it usually ends up freezing up and crashing first. I put it in 5.12.11 because I have a patch and it's fairly important- after all, we don't want to be DOSing people by mistake.
To reproduce, you need multiple screenshots have not been completed. One screenshot behaves just fine.
Thanks for investigating, Andy. http://github.com/jbalogh/zamboni/commit/4e01b69
