- Tor takes some version of Firefox, builds a more secure version of it, and plugs it into an anonymizing onion router network.

So I'm playing around with some more web browsers and am playing with Mozilla right now.
I can tell that a focus bug exists not only in Firefox but also with Mozilla. I have to click on the page to use accesskeys (and probably more) on that page. Mozilla gets thrown away because it doesn't have proper accesskey support. It's very flakey. =(
Apparently Firefox has a monopoly on intelligence. It looks like all other browsers are completely fucked in the head. There is some significant thing which is completely mangled, and it generally comes down to accesskeys. All their configurability doesn't help either.. it's as though they specifically designed accesskeys to not be set in the sane
alt-<key> manner. Argh!
Maybe I should use Flock? Hrm. It'll probably have all the same problems as Firefox though.
Ungh, I learned that Firefox 2.0 is looking at mangling accesskeys. I guess I won't be able to surf anymore.
2019-09-25 - Some time after I learned of an _about:config_ preference to force Firefox to use
alt-<key> as the accesskey, and use
alt-shift-<key> for menus.
