Details

Please add a preference for the Accept request header for images, as set in imageLoader's NewImageChannel, to be customized, as it is currently possible for normal HTTP requests with network.http.accept_default.
Blocks: mng
Should this be a single pref?  Or should it be something similar to general.useragent.extra.*, so each extension that adds to the Accept header can do so by having a default pref?
That's indeed a good question. I have no strong opinion on that, but the same rationale could be applied to network.http.accept.default, too...

As for implementation details, do you think it would be best to query the prefservice each time or add a member to the class, set it to the value of the pref at instanciation time, and add an observer to modify its value when the pref change ?

We should totally take a patch - I might even write one - but this doesn't block the release.

Image decoders and User-Agent strings are no longer extensible. Is this bug still valid?

I believe that it is not.
