I think pkgsrc/www/firefox/ needs a MESSAGE box.
I've just found that I've lost my stored password cache.
It may be because a Mozilla recommended (on their website) phase of running
as root to cut over stored configuration info didn't work properly.
Also, my bookmarks import appears to have lost some stuff.
its a nice release, and nobody in Mozilla guarantees its safe to move between
versions, but this is the first really visible stuffup during an upgrade of
mozilla/firefox I've seen in a while.
