That's an extremely dangerous thing to presume. I "presume" that you're
actually going to test the browser extensively after performing the
upgrade to ensure that the upgrade doesn't break the browser.

The other activities that use Xulrunner (e.g. Wikipedia) are all very
similar to Browse, so the upgrade is unlikely to cause problems in one but
As for dependencies of the browser, you should check that you have not
caused a regression in plugin support, especially as relates to the Totem
and Gnash plugins.
