Analysis and consolidation

Find common logic spread across three documented patches in Mozilla bug report #565965. Analyse and consolidate to a single patch.

Final delivery

Rebase according to the most timely (#565965) Firefox ESR release to facilitate testing, and finally rebase according to the Tor Browser in preparation to play with it and see how it behaves for us.

Although there's no patch as promised against vanilla ESR, lets close this marked 'wontfix' for two reasons:

  1. The last patch attached to motherbug #3246 met the rebasing (against Tor Browser) requirement and mostly met the consolidation requirement as well. Analysis was conducted and documented in motherbug #3246 which determined a state of failure.
  1. Rebasing against Mozilla codebase (like ESR31) is possible but useless to test. Compilation fails due to missing dependency on the unbackported ThirdPartyUtil API.

What to test

To validate the spirit of motherbug #3246, testing should be conducted using deliverables of #14059 (additional requirements which incorporate patch code associated with this ticket.) We want to test more than the rebasing of a flawed patch.
