Yesterday it was Mac, today it is Linux. Is Windows tomorrow? :-k
ETA: This issue was affecting a small number of Windows users as well according to one of the other bugs associated with the bug that was backed out.

Bug 711794 is fixed by backout of backout of bug 335998, which in turn is bug 708572. :idea:

There were a set of toolbars that would cause a crash on start up. Mozilla reversed a change that was introduced in one of the betas. Updates were disabled for OS X and Linux users. They should be enabled currently.
