Gecko notes

  • The Network API can be disabled using the dom.network.enabled preference.
  • As of Gecko 12.0, the Network API is implemented for Android systems only. Support for Linux (bug 712442) and Windows (bug 721306) systems is in progress.
  • Before Gecko 14.0, navigator.mozConnection was not an instance of EventTarget, meaning that you couldn't use addEventListener() could be called. This has been fixed.
