Steps:

1. Load a request for mozGetUserMedia with video:true from a local HTML file

Expected:

The doorhanger should show the origin of the page from a file:// URL.

Actual:

No origin is seen. See screenshot.

I can still reproduce the bug. The prompt says: "Will you allow Unknown Origin to use your camera?". Other permission prompts have separate copy for this case, for example the geolocation prompt: https://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/rev/692a10e624a02fe79bf45046b586e50ea0ff17f1/browser/modules/PermissionUI.jsm#744-745
