Although complaints about Firefox's quick killing of hung plug-ins were not limited to FarmVille, that game was the squeaky wheel that got the update grease. 'A lot of people play FarmVille.

'The problem already existed, but the perceived impact suddenly changed, giving it a much higher priority.'"
