In Firefox 1.5 Beta 2, you can click on Tools>JavaScript Console & you 
can see where the code is failing. I'm running the latest nightly on, 
FC3 (Mozilla/5.0 X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8b5 Gecko/20051022 
Firefox/1.5). The traffic graph is pretty funky looking but, the CPU 
graph displays fine, just no data.
