Torbutton 1.1.18-alpha released

The 18th alpha release of the Torbutton development series has just 
been released. The release features fixes for issues with gmail,
yahoo, and livejournal, and also fixes issues with the Clear Private
Data feature.

The release can be found at: https://torbutton.torproject.org/dev/

There is potentially one more feature I would like to get in before
declaring 1.2.0rc1, and that is ssl certificate separation:


It looks like it should be possible, but if it turns out to be
impossible or extremely hairy, I may just drop it for 1.2.0.

Also, see https://torbutton.torproject.org/dev/design/#FirefoxBugs
for a list of Firefox bugs still impacting Torbutton security.

Here is the complete changelog:

    unusable after recent updates by Google.

    some AJAX page elements from loading.
