Um...no...only the R/O sections. Programs have initialized R/W spaces that once written are gone. There'd be no reason to have those sections marked as COW, unless you already had someone sharing the page (like a forked copy). But any unrelated process likely wouldn't use a COW copy, as they'd need the pristine data as it was supposed to be when the program loaded.
Sure, any overview of virtual memory processes this length is bound to be oversimplified in some place. But we can safely ignore this detail as it doesn't differ between dynamically vs. statically linked programs.

marto wonders what fresh hell the firefox update has brought, apart from maxing out CPUs
1nickt was looking into Firefox Extended Support releases yesterday. You don't have to go with the updates!
[erix]: wonderfully red sun here
[LanX]: FF has become a source of instability :(
[1nickt]: erix not so wonderful for the lungs :-(
[erix]: the stuff is pretty high up as I understand it; I have not felt any effect on lungs/breathing
