It would be quite handy if the override command in chrome.manifest would accept about:blank.

For instance, you could remove about:config by simply saying:

override about:config about:blank

or remove private browsing:

override about:privatebrowsing about:blank

Warning: Cannot register non-local URI 'about:blank' for an override.

You have to create a blank XUL file.

Just realized you can use data:text/html, for this which helps. It still would be cool though.
