I don't think this is right.  I wrote the code for the Firefox
implementation and I don't recall there being a point at which font
loading worked without a same-origin restriction.  There may have been
test builds but certainly never anything in a beta or release build.

You can see the progression of patches in the bug below.  Click on "Show
Obsolete" in the attachments section and you'll see "version 0.9
implement same-site restriction":
