[gopher] Re: Firefox and Gopher, bad news...

I don't understand the incentive, here. Why are these people so concerned
with removing UI elements that aren't even in the way? If a prompt came up
every time you opened the browser asking for a Gopher proxy, it'd make
sense, but come on... Tools > Options > Advanced > Network > Settings? The
"majority" of people don't even use proxies to begin with. It's almost as if
these bug reports are made just so people can say they contributed to a
Firefox build.
I wonder if it's even worth fighting. I mean, it's 2007. If Mozilla felt the
need to discontinue Gopher support, they'd have done it a long time ago.
They could just end up ignoring these.
