Description

Firefox 4 may have tossed us a bone in terms of new Javascript APIs to override object properties: https://developer.mozilla.org/en/JavaScript/New_in_JavaScript/1.8.5

If these new methods are resilient against unmasking, we may be able to use them to combat the mounting pile of fingerprinting issues with FF4.

I tested this and it looks very promising, with the exception that Components.lookupMethod() needs to be muzzled somehow (#2873).
