When will Mozilla finally fix that bug that doesn't pass "Origin" in the Ajax header when POSTing to an API with JSON?
Hello, y'all. I love that I can perform a CORS Ajax POST to my API, but alas in Firefox for Android (Gecko/68), it is the only browser in existence that won't send the "Origin" in the header to my server, and causes my CORS call to die a miserable death. Even the desktop version of Firefox allows this, and I had no problems with Chrome, Mobile Chrome, Safari, IE, Edge, Opera... Why so stingy? I found a 9 year old thread talking about how developers kept going back and forth with this over some security issue (mainly pre-stating the origin manually in the header, or some sort of spoofing), but this seems like a real no-brainer here. Can anybody explain why I now have to exclude Firefox for Android as a useful browser to view this app?

I must admit that I do not fully understand the issue you are having, but I recommend that you try the new Firefox Preview browser from the Google Play store as this is the focus of our developers going forwards.
Hmm... Downloaded Firefox Preview from the Google Play Store. It won't even run my jQuery scripts. Is there some sort of Add On, or is this "the focus of [your] developers going forward?"
Do you have an example of a page where these scripts are not running?
