Can't select to run Firefox from menu

Description

There seems to be an explicit effort to hide Firefox in the menu to prevent attempts of running it. Firefox is probably my number one use case. This was tried between two Fedora boxes running 0.9.11.

Firefox is explicitly blocked as it doesn't play well as a seamless application. You are only allowed one instance (then it shows up the select profile box...)


I will change it for the next release so that you can manually re-enable it without having to edit the source code.
Currently you would have to edit shifter/consts.py and change DEFAULT_IGNORED_COMMANDS

I was talking nonsense earlier, this is already done!

Remove firefox* from the list of ignored_commands in .shifter/server/server.conf


Next release will have it allowed by default (r2289) and I'll deal with the complaints about "profile in use" then...
