  • M8 - bug 1141041 - [e10s] Opening the "View" > "Page Style" menu in remote browser

causes unsafe CPOW usage warnings

    • I have a potential solution to this, but will not work for stylesheets that are added dynamically. Based on how niche alternative stylesheets are, and how niche dynamically added stylesheets are, I suspect this is okay. Will file a follow-up for the dynamic case.

  • Kept working on the firewall-like WebExtension and taking notes of roadblocks for it & NoScript:
 - nsIEffectiveTLDService & nsIIDNService replacements Maybe in URL Web API? https://url.spec.whatwg.org/#dom-url-domaintoascii
 - WebRequest / beforeload equivalent for nsIContentPolicy interception of non-HTTP loads and decisions based on DOM nodes
 - Bug 1190662, is it supposed to cope also with dynamic resizing?
 - Really low level stuff, e.g. ScriptlessBGThumbs
