You might ask Federico if it would be at all feasible to back-port the
patch to firefox 2.  It's a pretty big patch (>1600 lines) so perhaps he'll
say no but it would be quite a bit better for users if we could patch the
standard Ubuntu firefox v2 package.  That way we could avoid putting
ordinary thin client users on a testing version of firefox and have
everything integrate nicely as with standard feisty.

The granparadiso version in Gutsy is not really meant for general use.
