When downloading the mini manifest as well as the app package we should use the same cookie jar as was used to load the page which called apps.install/installPackage.

This means that we for all packaged apps have to remember which cookie jar was used at the time of the install call and then make sure to use the same cookie jar during both the initial download as well as during updates.
I don't think we need any additional necko support for this. "All" we need to do is to create a custom nsILoadContext and hook up to the channels used for the mini manifest and the package.
Nominating for blocking as I my understanding is that the marketplace needs this in order to restrict access to non-reviewed packaged apps such that only reviewers can install them.

We currently download the manifests from the content process, and I think it would be easier to implement that cookie jar if we move all the network access in the parent since this is where we have direct access to all the meta-data associated with apps.
Indeed, we'd have to do that since we're planning on adding security checks in the necko code which prevents apps from using each other's cookie jars.

I know you're at TPAC, Jonas, but can you provide a status update when you get home?  Should we give this to someone else?

This bug has been called out as likely having risk to non-B2G platforms. Given that, marking as P1, and moving into the C2 milestone. We should prioritize this landing to mozilla-beta as soon as possible, to prevent late-breaking regressions to other platforms.

This patch is just doing some preliminary set up, moving all the network accessing code into the parent.

In this part we save the installer appId and isBrowser flag, and reuse it on all the network channels except appcache downloads.

Unfortunately I could not really test it since the reviewer tools  from the marketplace app redirect into the browser.

This looks weird. Why are you setting LoadContextCallback.prototype rather than simply returning the new object?
