Now that the about: pages, title bar and user-agent string no longer include the buildid, it is difficult for nightly testers to figure out what version they are running.  It is also difficult for support people to help users running nightlies because of the same issue.

I would like to propose that the buildid be added to both the about:buildconfig and about:support pages.  If you wish this could be not displayed on release versions.

It is in about:support
Is that good enough?
