Native Gopher in Firefox

I was able to get gopher working again in Firefox using OverbiteNX [0], which basically allows native gopher rendering using an external network service. It's not hard - just a two-step install, one for the extension and one manual install of the network service called Onyx [1]. It's nice to browse gopher in Firefox now and again and not have to worry about rendering images or other binary formats. I find it preferable to using one of the gopher-to-web proxies, which don't correctly render all gopher sites.
