Please note that the HTML5 parser is disabled in Firefox 3.6 for a reason.

The snapshot of the HTML5 parser in Firefox 3.6 hasn't had work done on it since the end of June. The parser is in the state it was in before it got serious testing by the Firefox nightly testers. If you enable the HTML5 parser in Firefox 3.6, you'll get an obsolete snapshot of the HTML5 parsing algorithm and will be exposed to crashes that have been fixed on trunk.

In order to experiment with the HTML5 parsing algorithm, it's much better to use a trunk nightly.
