Just curious, but does the upgrade to Firefox 4 have any affects at all on Orca?

Orca is self contained... updating firefox won't affect it.

You missed the point. Orca is using an older version of the Firefox engine, which is built in. It is not on top of Firefox, so Firefox upgrades have no effect. This contrasts with Avant which is a front end for IE.
