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
security updates.

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!
