I haven't gotten past the blank screen stage.

I don't know anything about websockets.  Wikipedia says:
A secure version of the WebSocket protocol is implemented in Firefox 6...
n older, less secure version of the protocol...  Because of vulnerabilities, 
it was disabled in Firefox 4 and 5,...

I think I have an up to date Fedora 23 system.  My firefox comes from:
and firefox --version says "Mozilla Firefox 42.0"

The about window says:
 identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Fedora; Linux i686; rv:42.0) Gecko/20100101 
The Mosilla/5 part is suspicious, but 42 is a long way past 5 and wiki says 
the RFC version came out in Dec 2011 so I'd expect it to be implemented by 

I found a Mozilla web page that mentions Firefox 6 and 7.  It's possible that 
Fedora is way behind for some reason, but they usually err in the other 

I can't find anything in the GUI stuff that mentions websockets.  I'm 
somewhat expecting a way to turn them on or off.

I found a mozilla bugzilla page that suggests it defaults to off
  That's from late 2014, and mentions Mozilla 5.0
  Given that network.websocket.enabled is a hidden pref...

Yes, it would be nice to have it update in real time, but I think it's more 
important that basic stuff works without depending on fancy features.  I 
shouldn't have to be a wizard to get something to work.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
