Firefox support

I primarily use Firefox as my browser and it is quite annoying that such a useful product like Coda forces me to use Chrome.

I nearly managed to make coda work in firefox by changing my user-agent and forcing the modal views overflow css property to be scroll instead of hidden. However the bug I can’t fix is window.document.caretRangeFromPoint not being supported in Firefox which effectively breaks all text entry on Coda.

Maybe having a shim in an extension could go some way. I tried googling but the only thing I found is this: https://gist.github.com/unicornist/ac997a15bc3211ba1235, a simple test to try to make caretRangeFromPoint be x-browser. I don’t even know if this works.

I actually ended up writing my own shim for this, but the encountered another bug further down and sort of gave up for the timebeing
