^ Yes of course
But I think it would be technically OK if Firefox used the same algorithm from its side. Eventually, it's just a choice, isn't it?

Yes, but it would be a pretty silly choice for Firefox to convert to base16, and then take base64 of the ascii of that. It takes extra space and would be slightly slower for no benefit.
