FRY: This is a great, as long as you don't make me smell Uranus. Heh heh.
LEELA: I don't get it.
PROFESSOR FARNSWORTH: I'm sorry, Fry, but astronomers renamed Uranus in 2620 to end that stupid joke once and for all.
FRY: Oh. What's it called now?
PROFESSOR FARNSWORTH: Urectum.

Speaking of unprecedented...
Though to be fair, that joke's only been made 5 times in the last year, according to google..

Use profiles instead of the VM. Currently, I run the nightlies with a reduced number of extensions. Very stable and very fast. If I want to use one of the heftier extensions, I can open up an earlier version (of firefox) at the same time. I've setup up several profiles for the different ways i use my browser, such as work, media grabbing, reading feeds etc.. With the speed of recent firefox launches, it doesn't take more than a second or two when switching between profiles. There's also the added bonus of no goat porn appearing in the awesome bar at the office.
