/**
* Content Preferences
*
* Content preferences allow the application to associate arbitrary data, or
* "preferences", with specific domains, or web "content". Specifically, a
* content preference is a structure with three values: a domain with which the
* preference is associated, a name that identifies the preference within its
* domain, and a value. (See nsIContentPref below.)
*
* For example, if you want to remember the user's preference for a certain zoom
* level on www.mozilla.org pages, you might store a preference whose domain is
* "www.mozilla.org", whose name is "zoomLevel", and whose value is the numeric
* zoom level.
*
* A preference need not have a domain, and in that case the preference is
* called a "global" preference. This interface doesn't impart any special
* significance to global preferences; they're simply name-value pairs that
* aren't associated with any particular domain. As a consumer of this
* interface, you might choose to let a global preference override all non-
* global preferences of the same name, for example, for whatever definition of
* "override" is appropriate for your use case.
*
*
* Domain Parameters
*
* Many methods of this interface accept a "domain" parameter. Domains may be
* specified either exactly, like "example.com", or as full URLs, like
* "http://example.com/foo/bar". In the latter case the API extracts the full
* domain from the URL, so if you specify "http://foo.bar.example.com/baz", the
* domain is taken to be "foo.bar.example.com", not "example.com".
*
*
* Private-Browsing Context Parameters
*
* Many methods also accept a "context" parameter. This parameter relates to
* private browsing and determines the kind of storage that a method uses,
* either the usual permanent storage or temporary storage set aside for private
* browsing sessions.
*
* Pass null to unconditionally use permanent storage. Pass an nsILoadContext
* to use storage appropriate to the context's usePrivateBrowsing attribute: if
* usePrivateBrowsing is true, temporary private-browsing storage is used, and
* otherwise permanent storage is used. A context can be obtained from the
* window or channel whose content pertains to the preferences being modified or
* retrieved.
*
*
* Callbacks
*
* The methods of callback objects are always called asynchronously.
*
* Observers are called after callbacks are called, but they are called in the
* same turn of the event loop as callbacks.
*
* See nsIContentPrefCallback2 below for more information about callbacks.
