How are you detecting from about:config that they are installed?

Searching about:config for 'torbutton', 'noscript', or 'bprivacy' shows config items for those extensions. I can't find https everywhere, although in a standard FF4 instance searching for 'https_everywhere' will show those items.

I just tested the Linux FF4 TBB.

  • HTTPS Everywhere is not installed (I was able to browse to http://eff.org/ and http://panopticlick.eff.org/ without being redirected to HTTPS).
  • Torbutton is not installed (its configuration variable extensions.torbutton.loglevel did not exist, and creating that variable, setting it to 1, and browsing did not produce Torbutton-related messages in the ‘Error Console’; also, I set extensions.torbutton.proxies_applied to false, and it remained false after I closed Firefox and reopened it).
  • Panopticlick was able to start a Java applet using a Java runtime that Firefox somehow found on my computer.
