String changes made by this patch: N/A

This fixes a bug in a web feature that causes it to randomly break depending on the speed of the machine.  The patch is simple enough that we could uplift it (as a bonus it fixes some randomorange bugs).

[Triage Comment]
Our earliest instance of this bug was from 2010 in comment 0 of 612311. Given the low-risk nature of the patch, we'll take it for Aurora 12. But we don't have any significant need for this on Beta, especially when we're only 3 weeks from finishing up the release.
