Here's the note explaining the WONTFIX on Mozilla's thirteen-year-old bug:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=36351#c98

"JPEG2000 is simply not used enough or important enough to justify the outlay of code, time, and increased threat surface."

I might argue that the one place where JPEG2000 *has* seen adoption is by institutions dealing with very large images -- museums, libraries, NASA -- who are trying to store a canonical source file that can be chopped and res-ed down flexibly & efficiently. Which is kind of the same problem web devs are now facing, as we try to wrangle bitmaps into responsive designs.

I'd love to hear more from browser vendors about why the format never made the cut, historically.
