Because when I develop XUL code, I sometimes crash Firefox. I don't want to take both down at once or risk data loss in email.

How's that?

That is one drawback with using a shared XUL runtime. If the runtime fails all the applications will terminate. Ideally if you didn't care about RAM XUL Runner would have the option to run each application which a separate instance of the runtime. I think this is actually a planned option. I tend to be kind of skeptical about software releases. Until I actually see thunderbird and firefox running on XUL Runner it is just vaporware.
