Thanks, Firefox is not setting the networkState to NETWORK_NO_SOURCE 
when the synchronous part of the resource selection algorithm returns. 
We've not updated our load algorithm implementation in about a year, 
there will no doubt be other places where we're non-compliant. We've got 
an existing bug on file to update the load algorithm:


Walking on water and developing software from a specification are easy 
if both are frozen.
