Created attachment 762826 [details] [diff] [review] Patch v1.0 Need some feedback from someone on OS X hence Stefan.
Comment on attachment 762826 [details] [diff] [review] Patch v1.0 Makes sense to me.
> Makes sense to me. Yes. But does it have the expected effect on OS X? I can't test obviously.
I can't test the patch since my build is a pure 64-bit, but with a nightly I can see that the Google Earth plugin runs its own process if I set the 'dom.ipc.plugins.enabled.i386' pref to true and restart in 32-bit mode.

Comment on attachment 762826 [details] [diff] [review] Patch v1.0 [Approval Request Comment] Regression caused by (bug #): N/A Referenced Firefox Bug 863830 landed on mozilla23 User impact if declined: 32bit plugins aren't run as OOP. Buggy plugins can crash SeaMonkey if they aren't run in a separate process. Testing completed (on m-c, etc.): Tested and baked on m-c since 2013-04-25 Risk to taking this patch (and alternatives if risky): low to none since: Bug 863830 Comment 0: > We've since dropped support for the QuickDraw drawing model (in FF 18) and > the Carbon event model (in FF 19) Any remaining 32bit plugins should be able to run OOP. String changes made by this patch: None.
