Comment (by yawning):

 A more complete list (along with the type is):
     // Video playback.

     // Image display.

     // Resizing text boxes.

 It's tempting to start whitelisting things that are required for various
 pieces of functionality, which does work.  However:

  * That at a minimum exposes information regarding Browser version.
  * Is probably somewhat fragile and would require people keeping track of
 what internal URLs Firefox uses for various pieces of functionality.
  * Realistically Mozilla should fix `resource` and `chrome` URIs
 correctly, though given how long the bug has languished on bugzilla, my
 bet is that it will remain ignored and unloved till Sol evolves into a Red
 Giant, rendering the issue moot by extinguishing all human life.

 Branch that does just that available on request, though it probably should
 be security slider linked because it is a functionality/privacy tradeoff,
 and I'm completely out of fucks to give at this point.
