Considering https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=913734 removes CAPS from the Mozilla code, is there an equally powerful alternative to this security policy system? If so, what?

Tip of the day: If it has "toolbar" in the name, it's crap.

Completely overlooked that! You are correct, although it most certainly will need some clear documentation on how to use it.

Thanks :)

Presumably the "documentation" at this point consists entirely of the notes stuffed in the code in the above linked bug.
