So, I've figured out this problem: Because of the way SVG works, if you
have a set of data which creates a Very Large SVG Canvas, it seems
firefox starts to choke.
The answer to this is two fold:
1. Erase features from the layer that are outside the viewing area.
(Warn users about this if they haven't saved yet.)
2. Do some logic in OpenLayers to figure out when the canvas is going to
be very large, and don't draw features which are way off the map.
