9 It's not that uncommon amon users. It appears it's just not
10 something the _devs_ want to do.

15 Many people have been requesting that feature for _8_years_ in
16 the case of mozilla. There are literally dozens of bugs filed
17 requesting this feature. It gets tossed back and forth from one
18 dev to another for a while, then somebody sets to the lowest
19 possible priority (IOW, put on the "no, we're not going to do
20 it, but we won't admit it" list). After that, everybody just
21 sort of ignores it until somebody files yet another dup bug
22 requesting it. Apparenty the developers don't have any need for
23 the feature, so the requests just get ignored.

28 Here's your chance. Add the feature to Firefox. ;)
30 Or pay somebody else to...
