This should be typically done with extensions, be they mozilla
extensions (such as the ones you can find on addons.mozilla.org) or
browser extensions (for galeon, epiphany and kazehakase).

I'll let these browsers maintainers see with their upstreams if that is
something they would want to support with extensions. Reassigning there.

For the mozilla part, I'll just close the bug. Feel free to file a
request for package (RFP) if you find a suitable extension on
addons.mozilla.org (I think there are some)
