 Recently, "we" has crept into the book in the section about
 using XulRunner and then saying to only download Firefox once.

 To me, saying to use the Firefox tarball for XulRunner is like
 saying use the MPlayer tarball for FFMpeg. I would prefer to
 use the actual tarball for the package.  I know that sounds
 picky, but what if someone only wants T-Bird and uses another
 browser other than Firefox.

 We should revise the text to more accurately describe
 what is required for any package using XulRunner.
