I would be happy to do that, and in fact would already have, were it not 
that I couldn't find a combo of a recent FF (or Mozilla) and a recent 
XForms XPI that didn't crash a lot, and apparently not necessarily due 
to the XForms part. The beta1 worked ok but it's missing a number of 
features and I'd rather use something that's further ahead (I don't know 
if it's solved yet, but external instances is very much needed in this 
case and it's not in beta1).

So if you know of a stable combo of versions (preferably OSX as I'll be 
travelling soon and will only have my laptop) I'd be delighted to 
torture it a bit.
