      If you're running it and in that menu, yes. Not obvious otherwise. But, thanks for the screen cap.

        That's an odd thing to say, given that large parts of Firefox have been written in Javascript since day 1...

          Mozilla must be idiots right? They use javascript for the webpage, GUI, pdf, mp3, extensions, torrent, flash etc.

            Well, since they don't care about performance, props to them, I guess.

            Maybe they should rewrite Firefox and Gecko itself in JavaScript and then we'd run it inside Chrome.
