Comment (by ma1):

 It's the "Attempt to fix Javascript links" ('''noscript.fixLinks''' in
 ''!about:config'') feature.

 Do you need me to modify the HEAD XHR preflight request in order to fit
 into your navigation restrictions, or to omit it outright? Or would it be
 better for you to just flip the preference?
