Would it be possible to change to using Gtk3 for firefox? I've just learnt that there's a mozconfig entry that should do this:

"ac_add_options --enable-default-toolkit=cairo-gtk3"

(along with re-enabling system cairo - I think it's a pre-requisite for this to work)
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Won't implement
Additional comments about closing:  Default is gtk2. Switching to gtk3 means incomplete work. This would also completely drop NPAPI support, as that depends on gtk2.
