Firefox's "First Run" page says 

  Right-click on a link and select “Open Link in New Tab”

My mom asked me how to "right-click" and I was embarrassed to have to explain "there is no right-click on Mac; when things ask you to 'right-click' they mean hold Control and click".  Since the first thing my mom did when she got her new Macbook was download Firefox, this was her first encounter with the term "right-click".

The first run page should probably say

  Control-click on a link and select "Open Link in New Tab"

or even better, avoiding the context menu entirely:

  Hold the Command key and click a link

Great, thanks.  But two more changes are needed:

1. A misplaced close-paren in the script makes it not work.

  if (document.getElementById('tab-info' != null))
should be
  if (document.getElementById('tab-info') != null)

2. In both the Windows/Linux text and the Mac text, the verb used with Ctrl+T (or Command+T) should be "pressing" or "typing", not "clicking".

JS syntax error was my mistake - thanks. That is fixed as is the misused term "clicking" (I went with "pressing").

We'll need to be careful when pushing this stuff to production as there are some plugin-check JS changes also on Stage that aren't ready for production (I don't think?).

We're safe; https://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/plugincheck/ is a 404.

I checked, and Jesse's comments are all fixed on production; Verified FIXED.
