This should block bug 775235

I've added a note to the Fx 74 rel notes about this:

https://wiki.developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Firefox/Releases/74#APIs

We don't document any of these, and for the moment I'm going to leave off adding a page for createMutableFile(), as I think a lot mroe work is need here than just adding a quick page (we have a lot of out of date stuff hanging about, and missing details, and it will require a separate effort).

Thank you for the rel notes updates. There's one small detail which might need to be addressed:
"The non-standard IDBDatabase.mozCreateFileHandle() method has been removed, in favor of the standard IDBDatabase.createMutableFile() method (bug 1024312)."

IDBDatabase.createMutableFile() is non-standard as well, so I suggest to remove "standard" from the sentence:

"The non-standard IDBDatabase.mozCreateFileHandle() method has been removed, in favor of the IDBDatabase.createMutableFile() method (bug 1024312).

or

"The non-standard IDBDatabase.mozCreateFileHandle() method has been removed, in favor of the non-standard IDBDatabase.createMutableFile() method (bug 1024312).

Ah, I did wonder, given that I couldn't find it in a spec anywhere and information seems very thin on the ground. Updated, thanks!
