User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; rv:18.0) Gecko/18.0 Firefox/18.0 Build ID: 20121114042011 Steps to reproduce: Run Aurora, open a bunch of tabs (currently 27). Wait until the Automatic update downloads a new build. Actual results: Before it downloads the update, everything runs fine and fast. After the update has downloaded and Aurora is ready for a restart, the UI slows almost to a stop, with frequent spin locks prohibiting normal shutdown, occasionally I have to force quit. Expected results: It should continue to run at normal speeds until I chose to do a restart.
I'll add that this also occurred on the Aurora 17 branch, but apparently I didn't bother to report it then.
Are you able to reproduce it with a small group of tabs?

Wyatt, is this still reproducible with any of the latest Firefox (Release, Aurora, Beta) versions?
Does not appear to be happening on 24.0a2 (2013-06-29). Marking Resolved.
