Attached patch PatchSplinter Review
Attachment #8430345 - Flags: review?(standard8)
I think this is all we'd really need (based on bug 914225), but I need to test it locally. I think we (like TB) can probably use the same cert Desktop is using eventually. I wonder if there's a better way to keep the fingerprints in sync.

Not sure I can officially review here, but it looks good to me.

> Do we want to uplift this?

Yes. Aurora should be fine. If it's really safe, then Beta too. Hotfix add-ons give us a way to tweak releases, so sooner this is released the better.

[Approval Request Comment]
Bug caused by (feature/regressing bug #): Not a regression
User impact if declined: We can't send hotfixes
Testing completed (on m-c, etc.): This is on nightly now, but hasn't been used yet. Its the exact same code (and even the same signing key) desktop uses though. It would give us a nice non-chem-spill option a little quicker to uplift it.
Risk to taking this patch (and alternatives if risky): If the security key was ever compromised, hotfixes could be used to do some awful stuff. The exact same risk exists on desktop right now. 
String or IDL/UUID changes made by this patch: none.
