Binary package hint: firefox
A Unity static quicklist item that opens up a new window would be nice. This would fire up firefox -new-window.
A proper rationale for this change is explained in comment #5 below. Moreover, according to comments by didrocks on bug #709707, we need to patch up desktop files to make up for the dropped 'Open a new window of this application' feature in Unity. My patch to fix that in Unity was rejected, and hence we had to follow the procedure of adding this feature to only those applications which support multiple instances.
Once we get a UIFe for both the string additions, then we will upload the change for 'Open a New Window', with the 'Open a New Tab' change following soon. Both these changes have been announced to the ubuntu-doc and ubuntu-translators MLs, and the translations for both of these have been set up on https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Translations/Wanted/FirefoxDesktop . Moreover, the translated strings for 3 locales have already been merged with the desktop file in the attached debdiff. The 'Open a New Tab' change later will also incorporate the translations for both the strings done till that point of time.
