 even have updating that list somewhere on my ToDo list). Having them
 buried (but still visible) via Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions -> Torbutton
 (right-click) -> About seems like a good idea to me. Do you like updating
 your patch in this regard (the respective contributor tags in the
 install.rdf are just missing, don't forget to add your name while you are
 at it ;) )?
 > Right-clicking acts the same as clicking it, so it would still be an
 extra entry.

 I don't think so. Clicking on it in Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions just
 selects Torbutton.

 Mike: I was not in favor of keeping the pane around. Moving the
 contributors to the install.rdf seemed still like a good compromise to me.
 That said having just one contributors pane for all of Tor Browser might
 even be better. I've filed #14906 for it.
