The review, which focuses mostly on performance metrics and test results, is in Spanish. An automated Google translation is available.

I don't think you understand.... Firebird and SeaMonkey use the same back/forward code in nsDocShell.cpp. That means that the moment you check it into SeaMonkey it's also in Firebird. It's not possible to add it to one without the other.

Hence the person who fixes it in SeaMonkey would in fact automatically also fix it in Firebird.
