My bug 284627 has not been fully fixed. "data:" url check is missing. Augh.

Then, bug 226548 becomes a problem. Links on the sidebar panel send wrong
referer. This could be used for cross-site scripting.

If you are on about:config or chrome url, referer is set to that privileged
content, not to the sidebar panel itself. This allows an attacker to execute
arbitrary code.

ok, fair enough.  I'm sure this will break something, but people can deal.
