Firefox on my Mac started acting very strangely after encountering one of the 'unresponsive' versions of craigslist.ca.  Apparent browser hangs, javascript script timeouts, and odd things related to the browser history.

I restored ~/Library/Application\ Support/Firefox from a Time Machine snapshot taken just before the Craigslist hack, and all appears fine now.

I have to diff between the two versions of that directory before I claim the website hack had anything to do with it, but for now Mac Firefox users might want to be wary ...

(Note: Mac OS 10.9.5 and Firefox 33.1 are what I was running.)
