Description (last modified by gk)

network.dns.blockDotOnion is set to true in Firefox but we might need to set it to false in Tor Browser for transparent proxying. At least that is indicated by https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1228457#c18. We should investigate that.

Replying to gk:

network.dns.blockDotOnion is set to false in Firefox but we might need to set it to true in Tor Browser for transparent proxying.

Vice versa.
According to RFC 7686, only .onion-unaware browsers should set it to true.

Do we need to set network.dns.blockDotOnion to false in ESR 52?

Yes.

Thanks, I fixed the description. That said, I'd still like to hear from folks doing actually transparent proxying that this is needed. So far, I am not aware of any bug report complaining about us having it set to true.
