Currently firefox-17 breaks quakelive. A bug has been posted on bugzilla. If you play quakelive, yo may want to stay at firefox-16.0.2 or less until it is fixed.

Please see this bug report for an effective work around. I can confirm it works with v17.0-r1

I did see qlprism, but I didn't fancy writing an ebuild for it. Also, the fix in the bug tracker refered to above is very simple and works fine.

Update: The change in the config pointed to in the above post will lead to firefox sometimes crashing when flash videos are run. It doesn't happen on all sites, but if you find a site with the problem, it is repeatable. For example, try http://www.scarletfire.co.uk/2012/12/joining-a-cycling-club-reflections-one-year-later/.

Perhaps I should go and have a closer look at qlprism! :wink:
