This was a community effort and it was great to see so many participate either through voting for this bug, commenting on the bug report and on the blog, through tweeting/retweeting or contacting Mozilla directly. Some of the people who took the lead on this advocacy effort are still talking to Mozilla to make sure this feature gets implemented in a timely manner. Mozilla has opened a new bug for implementation of this feature, and if you would like to get updates, please add yourself as a CC on bug 877453 here:
