Firefox iOS: SecurityError: DOM Exception 18 with openDatabase()

Firefox has been relased for iOS as another Safari/Webkit wrapper, but it's currently unusable with Web SQL due to I think privacy settings.

Bugzilla Bug: SecurityError: DOM Exception 18: An attempt was made to break through the security policy of the user agent.

Here is a very simple test case

Of course you might say, why not just use indexedDB? Well due to it being broken in the initial release in IE6, I mean Safari and Apple's terrible old school, we only update our browser with the operating system approach, that's not practical without doing version sniffing and writing Web SQL to IndexedDb migration logic. fun fun!
