Description

FF4 now submits pings to a.m.o. that list the UUID of every installed addon.

Thankfully, they created an opt-out procedure. They claim to have done it especially for us. Thanks, guys.

Hi MikePERRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Replying to mikeperry:

All firefox versions did that!!!!!!!!!!!! For example also the 3.6.*!!!!!!!
You forgot to read my articles!!!!! Their addresses are located here https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/2443 !!!!

Thankfully, they created an opt-out procedure.

They created it long time ago!!!!!!!!! BEEFREE automatically sets the opt-out option for itself!!!!!!!!!!!! to disable these "jumbo pings" in Firefox <= 3.6.*!!!!

They claim to have done it especially for us.

Hah!!!!!!!!!!! Very funny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think they told you a little white lie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

bye!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
