Warning about Firefox3 leaking timezone is scaring people away

Torbutton 1.2.0 pops up a warning the first time you use it with Firefox 3
that due to a bug in Firefox 3 your timezone will be leaked.
We have noticed more than a few people not using Torbutton due to that warning.
Consider downgrading it to an informational note/readme that
your anonymity set is weakened but you are far better off with Torbutton than without.
