HTML5's <link /> Prefetch doesn't work when appended from DOM
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:33.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/33.0 (Beta/Release) Build ID: 20140614030205 Steps to reproduce: Create a prefetch <link /> via DOM and append to <head> Actual results: Firefox does not prefetch file. See Network Monitor (Ctrl+Shift+I -> Network prior to loading). Upon manually retrieving file manually, HTTP Request headers confirm that file is not cached (no 'If-Modified Since' field). Lack of cache is also evident performance-wise when loading. Test Case attached. Expected results: File should be prefetched and displayed in Network Monitor with HTTP header 'X-moz: prefetch'.
