It used to be a mostly "global" per-resource switch, but the security  
folks at Mozilla thought that was too dangerous and we decided to go with  
the granular approach they proposed. This happened during a meeting in the  
summer of 2008 at Microsoft. I do not believe anything has changed  
meanwhile so this will probably not happen.
