We have several patches that could use a pref to control if them if they are to be enabled.

Ideally, there would have be a pref to control each one so that it only applies to private browsing mode windows (though this would could also be broken off into separate tickets if it is substantial).

This ticket will serve as the parent ticket for tickets for prefs for our individual patches.

Feel free to file child tickets for any of those patches. All patches that need prefs are also fair game for any bounty programs or interview processes we may run.

Our patch set can be perused at:

An additional Google Doc with more information and Tor Trac and Mozilla Bugzilla bug numbers can be found at:

Not all patches obviously require prefs and/or private browsing mode detection, but there are many that do (especially the fingerprinting and isolation patches).

I think we have those prefs with privacy.firstparty.isolate and privacy.resistfingerprinting.enabled now. And I think we should have them enabled regardless of whether disk usage is allowed or not (which is the main goal of PBM to deal with).

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
