Re: Forcing every request from a docShell to use LOAD_ANONYMOUS

NNTP-Posting-Host:  63.245.216.66

I'm having trouble following the initial question. What does it mean
for a request to be "made via the docshell"?

If you add LOAD_ANONYMOUS to that list and also make all docshells set
that flag, then all page loads and their subcomponents will have that
flag set. That's not what you want.

That said, adding the flag to that list seems independently useful.
