WebSockets is a technology that makes it possible to open an interactive communication session between the user's browser and a server. Because this technology is still in development, it is currently disabled by default and we do not yet have documentation for it.

Enabling WebSockets

If you wish to experiment with WebSockets, you may do so by setting the network.websocket.enabled preference to true. You will also need to set the network.websocket.override-security-block preference to true in order to allow initializing a WebSocket connection.
