+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1420622 +++ pcast:// and feed:// protocols were never standardised and are very rarely used so won't impact a large number of users however have been a target in the past for security issues. Bug 1345546 was to add telemetry for feed protocol usage which is likely only as high as it is due to the use of "feed:" prefixing from a few menu items in Firefox. This work requires the testing of feed related "subscribe to this page" features to ensure that removing the protocol won't break those. ------------------------- Note that once we remove simple nested URI creation off nsINetUtil (bug 1430237) this code will start breaking otherwise.
