We made this change back in Nov to enable us to test the browser hang detector - Bug 705365. We ended up leaving in this change which obviously has resulted in a higher number of plugin crashes. Product thinks we should change it back until we better understand what the right number is. Bug 705365, comment #6 implies that we should have taken it out for Beta. We would like this removed for Firefox 11 so adding the tracking flag.
$ hg backout 6f079f13c06a
Alex, can we get this changed in Aurora and Nightly as well?
It looks like numbers on beta are coming down to normal levels - Alex, could you please check this into aurora and central as well?
I've done this for Aurora, but Sheila mentioned she'd get in touch with bsmedberg about backing it out on m-c to make sure we have consensus.

From #breakpad (times in CET):
Feb 29 16:38:26 <KaiRo> bsmedberg: What's your opinion on https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=725869#c4 - should we do this revert for trunk as well? (I think we should)
Feb 29 16:38:30 <firebot> Bug 725869 nor, --, mozilla13, nobody, REOP, Set the plugin hang timeout back to 45s
Feb 29 16:39:56 <bsmedberg> KaiRo: it's a product decision, but it seems Asa has made it
Feb 29 16:39:58 <bsmedberg> so yeah
I guess that means we should do this revert to 45s on trunk as well. Alex?

Agreed - sending over to Benjamin for the final backout of bug 722394 on m-c.
