OK, more data in 
<https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=416178#c27> comes down to:

1)  The firewall is filtering out anything that does not have a
     Content-Type header string value of exactly
     "application/x-www-form-urlencoded".
2)  They'd really like to have a way of not sending a charset.

They claim to not have a way to modify the firewall configuration from 
the above behavior, which I guess is no more surprising than any of a 
variety of other hardcoded idiocies we've been encountering in HTTP 
server behavior.
