No, touching a firefox build is tricky...
The issue looks exactly as that bug! interesting is that it is an old 
MacBook and 10.5 Leopard, nothign should have changed!

Anyway, I backported the patch to 2.7! easy enough.. I did only the 
fix part, not the test one, but...

Could you add it to our build? Would be great! It fixed it for me.
