Comment (by bugzilla):

 Replying to [ticket:20123 arthuredelstein]:
 > Mozilla recently blocked remote jar files by default:
 And you should.
 > Then they had to re-enable the remote jar files again in the release,
 because users of IBM iNotes (some sort of webmail thing) ran into an
 IBM fixed it.
 > In any case, Mozilla's intention is to block by default again in the
 future. So when that happens, if not sooner, we should ensure that our
 security slider is not re-enabling remote jar files at Low Security.
 Last time such operation was called "exempt" (#18557).
