We're gonna land this feature on trunk but pref'ed off. This bug has all the dependencies and the patch needed to enable it for Nightly users.

Why does this patch mess with browser/branding/{aurora,official,unofficial}/pref/firefox-branding.js? Can't browser/branding/nightly/pref/firefox-branding.js override browser/app/profile/firefox.js?
Backed out:


Going to upload a new patch for tomorrow which just flips the pref for everyone and we're ready to back it out if it's not ready for Aurora in six weeks.

The approval from drivers is to pref this on for 1 wk starting today and we'll plan to pref this back off by next Thurs, 2/16.  

Can you file a separate bug to pref this back off next week?  Thanks!
