It's not in 106. To see this, you can look at the Diff of the latest 
patch on the bug page. Then you can look for the patched files in lxr, 
click the cvs log (or blame) and then click on (revision) graph. At the 
bottom of the graph you will find the patch in a grey box labeled 1.114. 
A little higher you will see the grey box with the firefox 106 release 

The only things you can do (I think) is change the xhtml into html (with 
scripttype text/javascript) or wait for a firefox release with the patch
