Version 1.3.1-signed 217.7 KiB Works with Firefox 8.0 - 25.0a2

- New: Compatibility with the new findbar in Firefox 25 (Current Nightly)
-- Although I tested thoroughly, some features may be broken due to several changes needed for this, please let me know about any new bugs

- Bugfix: sometimes switching to a new tab for the first time there would be a small lag
- Bugfix: native preferences (layout.word_select.*, accessibility.typeaheadfind.*, etc) were locked in about:config and could only be changed in FBT's preferences dialog
