Time for new #introductions!
I also do software stuff because of course.
Here's the patch:
It's for ESR, but the same #XUL still exists in the codebase.
XUL! It's still there! They lied to us! They said it was gone, but all they did was make us recompile Firefox if we wanted to change it.
Yaaaaay, I can now move with #Emacs keys again, wooohoooo, this makes me so happppyy! 😀
