The goal was to make them bail out on first startup if the hardware (battery
or wifi) was not available. I'll chat to you on IRC about this.

Matt and I were talking about this earlier today, with the added benefit of
Thom screaming in pain during the discussion, as he was trying to do Firefox
It comes down to this: If we're going to ship Firefox by default, we need
the latest versions synced - which Matt has agreed to; now we have 0.9.3 in
the archive - and some love from the Mozilla Foundation (which I'm working
on). Otherwise, there's no point switching. :-)

The browsers should really be patched to use ~/Desktop for their default
download location. I'll assign bugs to myself for this.
Thanks again for the review, Lionel!
