Comment (by bugzilla):

 OK, as nobody cares, then some updates on my comments only:
 `AvailableMemoryTracker` appeared to be a bad thing, despite the
 underlying bug was fixed. Moz devs wondered why they got so few report
 from it by their Telemetry, that's because it hangs the browser reliably
 after several calls.
 Newer GCC is a good way to reveal bugs, not to fix, and it's not needed if
 nobody is going to fix them. So nothing has changed, it didn't work
 It wasn't discovered by testers as
 > the application freezes very early in the process and does not
 completely start

 About `LoadLibraryW`: `PR_LD_LAZY`
 P.S. default for FF is `-Os` or without `-g`.
