[tor-dev] "Not our bug" bugs

Hey all,

There have been quite a few bug reports that discuss incompatibility with
various Firefox extensions and with websites. In most cases, I can't 
these bugs -- either because the extension in question has been patched, 
website reported no longer exists, or the issue can't be replicated (which 
be due to site updates and past Firefox incompatibility).

Occasionally, the issue is real and still in effect, but isn't really a Tor 
(such as #7279, where a forum restricts logins by Tor users). We've all 
very hard to reduce overly-restrictive blacklist policies, but can't be
everything for everyone.

In these cases, I'd propose rejecting these bugs as either invalid or `not 
bug`. These are all varying degrees of "not our bug" or "actually not a bug 
all." Open to more thoughts on this.
