Comment (by Ag.Hatzim):

 Version increment to 2.0.0.2

 Fixes the serious "location.hostname" security flaw. (1)

 You can find if your version of firefox is vulnerable in the following
 link (2),where you can also follow instructions for a workaround,if you
 are not wishing to upgrade.

 I am upgrading now to the new version,although I am not really qualified
 to comment about the build procedure since I deviate in some ways from the
 book.
