I've not tried it, but first question - 32-bit or 64-bit firefox?

However, this isn't encouraging:

$ file /usr/lib64/firefox/firefox
/usr/lib64/firefox/firefox: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 
(SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.18, stripped

$ ./summarise_stat.pl /usr/lib64/firefox/firefox
      1 100.0% use 32-bit stat() family interfaces only

sooo if my perl script is to be believed, it may be problematic, depending on 
how serious a stat() failure is.
