Description

3 years ago
Currently, most .xul documents set the default namespace to xul. In order to use React, we'll need to change the default namespace to xhtml.

As :jlong describes in Bug 1238881 comment #2:

> We don't need to *remove* XUL, we just need to switch the default namespace.
> All that should require is going through all the XUL elements and prepending 
> `xul:` to them, and going through any existing `createElement` calls and
> changing them to `createElementNS`.

Closing this out because it doesn't fix the problem we thought it would. See Bug 1239183
