Mozilla just landed (will be in ESR 59 but not 52) to speculatively connect to a link when the user mousedowns (but before they release.)

There is no pref for this.

The bug also mentions speculative connections on hover on http pages.

We might want to add that to our test in #21657.

Firefox 60 is the new ESR.

#28371 is a duplicate. In that ticket, related to the "on mousedown" connections, tom said:

This should be fine. It speculatively connects passing NodePrincipal() which contains OriginAttributes.
