So what's the big deal? You don't have to use it. That Facebook thing is an opt-in thing.
I read a few posts on mozilla's site earlier about someone saying they didn't want it and the usual mozilla people saying 'blah blah its opt in it isnt active unless you activate it', so?
IE 8 had XSS protection, MS's head of security for the UK (a previous FBI agent) came to our uni. to do a talk and he touted how good it was, one of the people in the lecture said it didn't work, the the guy took the **** out of him for the whole session.
Know what happened after? He emailed the guy his research into it, got a FULL APOLOGY and money as a way of saying sorry.
Just because a feature is there, DO NOT THINK that 'opt in' means it's secure.
I don't want that **** there at all, I don't want it wasting my CPU cycles and showing me menu options I don't want to see, so I'm removing it.

As long as I don't have to compile it myself(as I'm too lazy this morning), I will test it out under Fedora, Ubuntu and Windows.

So with the files would I just cd to that dir, sudo make, make install, cleanup or what?
Yes you would have to compile it!
I can upload the files compiled in arch but not sure if they'd work. I don't know how/if you can compile firefox for windows on linux, will have a look into it later.
In terms of the files, I'm gonna make a diff patch so you'd download the source from mozilla's site, cd to it, run: patch -p1 < ../firefox.patch then make and it'd (hopefully) build
I've got it built now, that 1GB mozilla said about compiling? Try 3.5GB...
Only problem is I have obviously accidentally removed a </menupopup> from browser.xul so just added it in and recompiling now to see if it works.
