Details

If a data: URI requests access to the camera, the user has the option to "Never Share" which adds an entry to the Permission Manager with a host like `moz-nullprincipal:{64232ad3-acb0-b84f-b06f-199591434642}`.

This isn't even useful within a single session, as if the page requests again, the request will pop up again. The UI should not allow users to add permission entries for data: URIs.

The test at http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/browser/modules/webrtcUI.jsm?rev=56da5d401fe2#229 needs to be changed a little bit to take this case into account.

This was solved for gUM in bug 1371741 and is "prevented" for other permission prompts by bug 1438781.
