There are several new hidden prefs (UI will be added eventually) to turn off
various annoying features on web pages:
// Image animation mode: normal, once, none.
user_pref("image.animation_mode", "once");

// Use configurable security policies to override popups, see
// Turn off for particular sites:
user_pref("capability.policy.popupsites.sites", "");
// Or turn it off everywhere:

// Override popping up new windows on target=anything
user_pref("browser.target_new_blocked", true);

Mentioning bug 67442 here as it occurs quite often.
" 'open link in new window' doesn't work all the time ".
'Compatibility Information' should have a windows subheading.

It would also be nice if all of the headings that have OS subheading could have
the subheading order standardized.

Hmmm..actually with regard to bug 67442 I mentioned above, this doesnt seem to
be appearing on the .8 branch even though no fix was checked in (perhaps related
to Peter `jag' Annema's back out for bug 66034 ?). Sorry for the needless comment. 
The following bugs are mentioned in the release notes but are not currently 

bug 44787, bug 58259, bug 59012, bug 54637, bug 54031, bug 56865, bug 43408, bug 
44579, bug 49484, bug 53741, bug 53440.

Incorrect wording:

"If you share your Netscape 6 profile with Mozilla, you may be able to see
headers for messages in the account's Inbox if you have previously checked one
of these accounts in Netscape 6, but you will be unable to interact with the

" will *not* be able to interact..."

Transferring comment from bug 69176:

Under International Release Notes/IMAP, there is the text:

> You may see an extraneous vertical bar or a question mark in the window title
> display of a header subject line. This is a misinterpreted Tab character sent
> from an IMAP server as part of a line folding sequence. This problem does not
> occur under a POP mail account.

1) The problem is no longer specific to IMAP, it also occurs for POP, NNTP, and
local mail.
2) The bug number for this issue is 64948.
