Description

In the latest torbrowser (2.2.35-9), on Windows 7 (64-bit), I noticed a residual setting in Firefox.
It can be found on the about:config page under the name 'extensions.bprivacy.DataDir'
The value is set to '/Users/erinn/Library/Preferences/Macromedia'

It's a user specific value and should not be there for all TBB users.
Besides that, I'm not sure TBB should contain an extension called 'bprivacy' (about:config contains more 'bprivacy' settings)

It was also present in 2.2.35-7.1
Searching older tickets and found: #2828 (Linux, before 2.2.24-1-alpha)

I can reproduce this in the latest TorBrowserBundle on Linux.
But it has already been there for a long time.
Maybe just a forgotten piece of Erinn's personal config..

This is probably left over from when Erinn ‘fixed’ #2338 by starting TBB, toggling Torbutton, closing TBB, then copying the resulting prefs.js into torbrowser.git.

Replying to rransom:

This seems likely.

It can be found in the source in ./build-scripts/config/prefs.js

There are a couple more artifacts like these, not all as simple as removing a line in prefs.js. I've fixed a couple of them already, but more remain

I removed the BetterPrivacy artifacts from prefs.js. Can I close this or do we want to keep it open for general issues like this?

comment:6 Changed 7 years ago by Sebastian

Keep it open for now please, I'll check again for remaining issues
