When you set any of the preferences listed below to a negative number, you'll run into issues when loading websites while the browser tries to update the tiles under about:start. We should either not allow users to set the preference to a negative number or make it so a negative = 0. - browser.display.startUI.topsites.maxresults - browser.display.startUI.bookmarks.maxresults - browser.display.startUI.history.maxresults Attached video of the issue: - http://youtu.be/KPjmvgExKaI Steps to reproduce the issue: 1) Open fxmetro 2) Change any of the preferences that are listed above to a negative number (usually I get the best results setting the history pref) 3) Once you've changed the preference to a negative number, load any website Current Behavior: - The above preferences can be changed to negative numbers causing stability issues (fxmetro stalls) Expected Behavior: - User's shouldn't be able to change the preference to a negative number and should never stall fxmetro to the point were its not usable anymore Issue found using the following build: - http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/2014-03-10-03-02-01-mozilla-central/
