Adding fixed-seamonkey2.0 keyword so the queries for approved but not fixed bugs don't catch that bug.

Should this be landed on 1.9.1/.2 as well? If so, I guess you should request approval. I saw that some users are confused by finding the pref in about:config in SeaMonkey 2.0, thinking it would be any good to set it to true.
Not confused, hoping against all hope it was hidden switch to turn it on. I've have had JavaScript on since netscape Navigator 3.0.1.a days and have never had any problems with it.

Dead pref removal to avoid confusion.

These bugs landed after b4 was cut. Moving flag out.

approval1.9.2 requests aren't currently being monitored, since we're nearing RC freeze and there are too many outstanding requests, so I'm clearing this request. Feel free to re-request approval if you are confident that it's worth drivers' time to consider whether this non-blocker needs to land for 1.9.2 at this stage.
