Response from the Working Group
================================
Thank you for alerting us to this improvement in Firefox, and for
identifying the places that needed updating. We have determined that
this fix occurred in Firefox 3.0, so instead of removing Firefox from
the User Agent Notes, we have corrected them to versions of Firefox
before Firefox 3.0.

In general, we have not added the notes about Safari to the
descriptions of the techniques. Safari's restrictions are included in
the User Agent Notes, and including the Safari restrictions in the
descriptions makes the techniques more difficult to understand.
