We should find a way to not auto-captialize the first letter on certain textboxes. Other options include: disable the feature for all of Fennec (not desirable) or even have the user turn it off for the entire device (not acceptable)

There i a setting, but we should not force people to use it. Some textboxes are perfect candidates for auto-capitalize. Others are not.
is this something we should relnote?

"capitalization", otherwise, looks ok.
