I'm seeing some Nightly crash reports where GConf/ORBit is trying to call bind().  I don't understand why it would be acting as a server when it's just trying to read a preference value (this seems to be, once again, nsProtocolProxyService), but maybe that's just how ORBit works.

Maybe it's time to just deal with nsProtocolProxyService and then make nsGConfService fail to start in content processes.

Bug 1382442 - Don't try to use GConf in content processes.

As the WebRTC proxy support is probably mostly used in corporate environments I would be surprised if disabling this feature will result in problems (I'm assuming that not many corporate users are using Linux).
