Firefox version number

Please add the Firefox version number as a profile option since Orca uses it as its engine instead of Explorer.

The version of Firefox installed has no correlation to the version of Gecko that Orca uses. Orca is completely self contained whereas Avant uses the IE Rendering engine that is installed on the computer.

Ah, OK. Still, it is useful when comparing behavior between the two browsers when reporting a bug.

I think he means he would like to to know what version of the Gecko engine that is being used by Orca, regardless of the what version of Orca is being used. Either way, I still think this should be in the "Orca requests" forum.

By providing the Orca version/build number, you are providing all of the necessary details. The Gecko engine is in the Orca installed folder and cannot be changed, regardless of whether you install any other browser on your computer. If you want to know that information just type about: in the address bar.
