Just to set the record straight here. Firefox 3 will not support 
JSONRequest. We are doing some JSON work, and I wasn't sure if that 
would include the "Request part" or not, but it turns out it does not.

It is also at this point too late to even consider adding such support. 
We are way past feature freeze and are focusing on polish and regression 
fixes.
