I believe I've fixed all of Tom's and your comments in the latest update
(and also added 4.5-alpha-1 material too), except for this one. I think
it is a distracting implementation detail, especially since Mozilla has
already committed the fix for future versions. Other browsers are
unlikely to hit this same bug, and may also have different bugs related
to directly JS-exposed OS and arch info.
