 Replying to [comment:7 gk]:
 > mcs/brade: Do you think this is done or is this a ticket for a patch
 that fixes `network.protocol-handler.warn-external.*`?

 Since we decided to keep our safe approach of using a Tor-specific prompt,
 I think this ticket can be closed (unless you think we will revisit that
 decision in the future).

 I think someone should fix
 https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=440892 (maybe be simply
 removing the `network.protocol-handler.warn-external.*` prefererences,
 since Firefox has not supported them for a long time). But that is a
 Mozilla issue, really.
