Discontinuing support for Firefox 3.0

A heads up and last call for people using WWW::Mechanize::Firefox with Firefox 3.0.

I plan on discontinuing support for Firefox 3.0 due to moving to the native JSON encoder that exists starting with Firefox 3.5.

If you are a Firefox 3.0 user (for compatibility testing?), and really, /really/ need the support, please talk to me so that we can work on a solution that keeps the code small and maintainable for me. If nobody speaks up, I'll interpret that as nobody using Firefox 3.0 anymore, which is fine by me as well.

In other news, I now got several "portable" Firefox instances installed and modified the test files to test against all installed instances. This now tests Firefox versions 3.5, 4.0, 5.0 and 6.0 Beta.
