Severity should probably be increased.

Tor Button still breaks in Flock's 2.0.3 release based on the Firefox 3.0.5 security update.

Flock, seamonkey, and other firefox derivatives are not likely to be supported at this time. Patches
will be accepted though.

You could also try filing a bug against flock. It hardly seems like it should be a Torbutton bug
if Firefox 3 works but flock 2 does not..

Closing this as the Flock project has ended and support also ended in 2011 [1].
