Hi everybody,

we have one FFe/UIFe [1] that wasn't announced properly and thus hasn't
hit translations or doc, sorry for that.

The confusion comes from whether [1] is covered or not by [2] and I
wanted to make sure we have everything covered. In order to make things
clear, I have split the feature that crept in out of [1] into [3] so it
can be tracked there, leaving us with 2 requests for your approval [1]
and [3].

We needed to patch Firefox to add an ubuntu specific interface to
firefox for getting the xid of a tab so it can be used with web apps [1].

[3] tracks a so called chromeless mode of Firefox, which will not show
any decoration or controls. The intention is that this will make a web
app appear more like a regular application.

There are disputable usability concerns regarding missing navigation
elements. This has been discussed with Design and was further requested
by sabdfl.
Any impact on UIF and doc freeze should be remedied by Kate's
announcement from yesterday regarding the respective timelines.

I apologize for this slip and lack of communication and am totally
willing to bribe affected members at UDS, let me know if you are there
and I will try to make it up for you.
As Neil stated in an earlier mail, we will address the underlying issue
to prevent a similar situation for upcoming cycles. Also, feel free to
ping me with input & concerns on that topic.

Thank you,
