This is more than something that we want to patch. We dont patch
features we let upstream handle that since it is not a trivial.

Implementing a KDE solution is important since KDE users use Firefox
this is not something we should leave out. This is one big reason
why we have upstream apply feature changes to upstream code.
Its always best to keep patches to a minimum if possible.

if we apply that patch we will have to remove it once it is implemented.
Also there is more than one bug that uses the same code section, so
applying this one is not something they would like until the patch is
updated for all peices of code. This will be implemented for
Xulrunner-1.9.2 + Firefox-3.6 as it looks atm.
