Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create a custom protocol with the libdweb protocol handler API.
  2. Navigate to a page on that protocol.
  3. Access localStorage or indexedDB in the console.

(Extension to reproduce:

Actual results:

For localStorage: Quota originNoSuffix (moz-nullprincipal:{948a55e1-6c93-4153-b353-68d5df20a0a9}) doesn't match passed one (test://origin/)!: ActorsParent.cpp:6077

For indexedDB: same errors as above, plus IndexedDB UnknownErr: IDBFactory.cpp:134

Expected results:

Storage APIs should be usable in custom protocol pages.

This comment ( points to these errors being caused by the protocol not having a self-consistent principal.
