New features in Converter 0.8.6

This is a minor release containing a single bug fix -- the next full release I'm working on takes more than I expected, and what with the Converter being featured at AMO at the time, I decided to release this one ahead of time.

bug fix Some strings were freezing Firefox 1010010101001010100101010101010101 Trying to convert the example with currency conversions enabled used to freeze Firefox for significant amounts of time. This was fixed to a certain degree -- very long legitimate values still confuse the regular expression meant to catch them, but I expect those are pretty rare (we're talking about legitimate, explicit prices above 99 billion units). Even then, the Converter does work, it just takes a while to figure it out. Thanks Mike for reporting this bug.
internal change reverted prefs system n/a Gave up on Mozilla's "new" preferences system because of its bugs (the thing isn't new at all, it was implemented in Firefox 1.5, but it's still too buggy for extensive use).
