See bug 1277876 comment 11. The initial implementation on that bug uses a pref to store the blocklist, which is fine for an initial implementation while it's being validated on the pre-release channels.

However, before rolling out an active list to the release channel, we should be using the Shavar service, which will make consulting the list faster (as it uses a hash), and also because it's faster to deploy updates to the list.
