Some background might be gleaned from the linked bug reports requesting
the feature:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=36489
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=359270
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=702299
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=112047
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=136440
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=231497
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1152706


Looking at a couple of the more emotional comments in the ticket Jim
referred to had me scrambling to fire up v45 (I'm still on v38 on
Ubuntu). The feature *itself* at a quick look (and once one understands
what the arrow means) does seem like a net improvement.

Cheers,
Dave
