Comment (by pospeselr):

 So this updated patch shows the general approach here of smuggling the
 first-party domain on the channel object directly as a fallback in case
 the domain stored on the origin attributes is empty-string (as is the case
 for XMLHttpRequests made under the System Principal.

 I think the final patch (assuming y'all are ok with this approach) would
 stow the smuggled first-party domain on the nsIHttpChannel, rather than
 the nsIPrivateBrowsingChannel (since almost everything implements the
 private browsing interface, but we only need it on the http channel).
