Jesse, I just readded bug #21253 because I thought it was accidentally removed
due to the midair dependency bug, but someone pointed out that this might not be
the case ... if so just remove it again.  It's probably good practice to add a
comment if you remove a dep someone else added.
every remaining bug being tracked here is targetted at 2.14, so this should, too.
Target Milestone: --- → Bugzilla 2.14

No longer blocks: 66091
Note that some of these bugs might allow an attacker to view
Netscape-confidential bugs.  See my comments in bug 66091.
No longer depends on: 38862
No longer depends on: 26257
Should this also depend on bug#95235 ?
since all dependencies are resolved, the tracking bug is resolved.
