Description (last modified by mikeperry)

In TorBrowserBundle, in FirefoxPortable/App/Firefox/searchplugins/google.xml you should remove the "dynamic parameters".

When someone uses Firefox' builtin box to google something, it sends things to google it shouldnt.

I.e. when using german TBB, google can see that I come from Germany because of {moz:distributionID}:{moz:locale}:{moz:official}

Torbutton may be able to address this directly via some url filtering hacks that we may want to perform
for addons.mozilla.org update purposes anyway, but in the meantime Tor Browser Bundle should remove these
parameters from the xml files it ships.

I strip these off in Torbutton, at least for google.
