My point there was that Mozilla/FF always considered itself to be
professional, no matter how open the code is.  Did anyone from the Mozilla
team/foundation say "meh, it's my browser, I like it this way.  Go write

Besides, a typical install installs not only Firefox but the crash
reporter... so, it nicely sidesteps the issue we are discussing anyway.
