Opening https://app.box.com/s/euscsfh0h9pgbeqq57g4 causes FF not to respond for some time. CPU spikes to 100%.
The document seems to consist of 4.5 MB of <use> elements. It hangs Opera 12 too.
I guess firefox 29 and 30 are also affected?
Can we find out how far back this reproduces? That might help also determine if this is a bug on the Firefox side or something with the web content.
I don't think it a regression, the SVG that is generated by conversion of PDF content. The content contains lots of elements as mentioned in comment 2. I think all browsers will have issue with this SVG - it might take long time to render it, but we shall not lock the main thread because of it.

Without bug 308590 we ignore the use elements so it's not really a regression as the testcase data is mostly ignored prior to that bug.
no longer tracking based on comment 8 stating this is not a regression and this being in product for a long time.
