Description

clicking the "About, Visit Home Page" link fails both when Torbutton is enabled and disabled.

relevant IRC snippet:

arma> mikeperry: when i click "About Torbutton", and then click "Visit Home Page", nothing happens. i think.
mikeperry> yeah, I noticed that..near as I could tell, that is some firefox bug unrelated to us, but I will keep an eye on it

it cuold be releated to the content policy and clicking links from non-browser.xul windows

arma> it can't be totally unrelated. we're the ones appearing to have the feature and having it not work.:)
mikeperry> true :)
keb> the same bug seems to occur when i try the About page in RefControl
mikeperry> do you also have torbutton installed in that profile?
mikeperry> it could be a torbutton content policy thing
arma> my torbutton was in 'disabled' mode
mikeperry> if torbutton can't find a state tag (or a browser window) for a load request, it blocks the request.

I thought I checked and that wasn't happening, but maybe I didn't look closely enough

I looked into this and afaict, we are not blocking this load. Also, it DOES work just fine in FF3. I suspect
the method we use just doesn't work right on FF2..
