According to Microsoft, the code that's doing this is inside some component that has to be pushed to each Windows system as part of a platform update. So add a few months for that. And/or convince Firefox to allow non-strict code to trace through strict stacks, which probably isn't gonna happen. Since "use strict" isn't really buying us anything, it's gonna walk the plank.
