 > Kathy and I did some testing on macOS; it would be great if someone
 could do some independent testing. One simple test is to replace the
 binary bits of a 8.0a10 install that is in a bad state due to this bug and
 then restart. The startupCache should be removed and life should be good

 I did some testing on Linux. I made a build of 8.0a10 + this patch. After
 comparing this build with 8.0a10, the only file that is different is

 When I copy the new `Browser/libxul.so` file to a browser affected by the
 issue, then it solves the issue. So it looks like the fix is working.
