When you create a customized Firefox distribution, it sets the preferences distribution.id and distribution.version which add additional information to the about dialog.

Unfortunately, these items are bolded and make it appear as if they are the most important information in this dialog.

The distribution information shouldn't become the focus of the dialog, and the Firefox version should bolded to make it more obvious.

This has come up with my clients as people are getting confused when they try to report what version of Firefox they are using to support.

Switch bolding around

looks fine, but I'm uncertain about bolding the version number which would affect the standard distribution.  Requested ui-review.

Philipp, this change would bold the version number in our (Mozilla) standard distribution.  Are you certain that is ok?

Bolding the version number is fine, since it is probably one of the things that users look for more frequently when they view this dialog.
