if you're using firefox—
- open about:config
- toggle app.normandy.enabled to false
don't know if this could potentially be targeted to remotely control someone's browser, but I don't like it
I hate this opt-out via hidden settings mentality.
Mozilla is no better then other privacy killing business with this approach
@httpeter I think this is unacceptable too !
it used to be that they ask at first run (or first run after it is introduced) whether you want to participate in these kind of things
but I don't think that was the case here
@orionwl at least not that I know. Using ff on many systems. And once opted out, in theory, you would have to check this setting after every update again.
