Not sure if they are as easily exploitable in Tor Browser as they are in Firefox but we should be better safe here than sorry and backport the pref changes coming with bug 1552627 and 1549833.

Changesets in question are:


bug_30849 (https://gitweb.torproject.org/user/gk/tor-browser.git/log/?h=bug_30849) does contain the last two changes as they are simple preference settings. I am not sure about the first one as it is more a fix to make social engineering harder and it seems to require some work to get it properly applied to esr60...

After revisiting I think we should just go with the two pref flips for now and pick up the other part of the fix once we move to esr68.
