As someone who has done some C/C++ coding I'd really like to know more about the specific bugs that hinder the releases. For the first bug found some month ago there was a link to a mozilla and intel bug ticket, but now there is no specific information. Is the intel compiler usable at all as a drop-in replacement for msvc code when as it seems bug after bug occurs out of nowhere even after such a long time of intel compiler releases? Or has intel simply very bad luck that exactly the changes done from one firefox version to the next trigger unknown bugs?
