There was a recent security bug with regards to HTTP/0.9 compat [1] that
suggested a coordinated fix among multiple browsers. Browser vendors
decided that they'd start off killing HTTP/0.9 compat on non-standard
ports only, because overall usage was still too high.
Firefox has HTTP 0.9 usage data[2] and so do other browsers. Please
chime in.

Hope that helps,
