 Mozilla is thinking about removing support for <isindex> HTML element.

 The reason we might want to do this for TB 6.0 is that <isindex> generates
 a form that has a label that contains text that comes from the browser's
 UI locale (thus leaking that information).

 There is a risk that some sites are using this tag.
