First off, let's not forget that this is nightly and not an actual released build, so, probably (if they are sane) they're not going to include it. If the do for some reason, it can be turned off. Lets not forget that one of the big draws of Firefox is that its super customizable. Having it on by default is uncool, but not the end of the world. Ubuntu had the same controversy with their in OS advertising. I understand why people are pissed at Mozilla, but I still think they're a good group trying to do good stuff. Everybody missteps.

I suspect this is going to come down to Coke vs Pepsi. Dr pepper wins anyway.

Write about:config into the url bar. Then write javascript into the search field.
Probably it could be done from their standard GUI also if you dig deep enough into their option dialog.
