inline SVG files (even very small ones) make FF19 freeze and crash

every time I open this page http://mincovlaw.com/interest/calculate (or many others that contain an SVG object), FF19 freezes on me under Win7.

This is how the SVG is embedded:

<object data="/images/logo/logoblack.svg" type="image/svg+xml" style='width:300px; height:40px;margin-bottom:15px;' alt="MINCOV LAW CORPORATION - Outside The Box Legal Solutions" title="MINCOV LAW CORPORATION - Outside The Box Legal Solutions"></object>

Is there a way to fix this?

Try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.


This svg code creates a quite large 1,742px × 242px image that doesn't look really well for me because it is scaled down significantly to 300 x 40.

I downgraded to FF18.0.2 and it looks like the problem went away.

The reason I want to have this as a large svg is because this page gets printed out a lot, so I want it to look sharp.
