gbryant I honestly have to disagree with you on this. (P.S @Adam-Stambaugh my Iceweasel Package on Debian never lost a single Extension). Mozilla as a US-501c nonprofit organization cannot be motivated by profit, and I don't think they are either. Mozilla, advocates for a free and open web, and while some of that includes privacy, privacy isn't what they claim to be about. I trust Mozilla. Here is why. I can go to about:config and disable pocket completely, disable WebRTC, and disable anything that I do not like about Firefox. That is open. No other browser lets you fully aware that WebRTC is disabled unless you read the source code. Speaking of, the source code of Firefox is Free and Open. Mozilla has an option for me to disable their telemetry too. Yes, they said that you could allow Firefox to run studies in order to re-enable your extensions, but think about it from this angle. My first thought is that that is sketchy, but what if it said "allow Firefox to enable experimental features" instead. That is why they said that you should enable the studies option in this case. Of course, it says allow them to run studies...that is because they are honest with their wording. Mozilla advocates for a Free and Open web, not a private browsing experience. Yet they are honest and open enough to allow you to access a private one though. It is their belief that part of a free and open web (as I am sure that most people can agree here) is that there should be competition in the browser-space. Mozilla Firefox has been suffering from lack of user market share, so I believe that they are trying to claim some of that back by appealing to the masses. Since Google has a monopoly on Web DRM and video codecs, they have to implement that stuff to appeal to the masses. Furthermore, DRM is disabled by default - at least on Linux - which keeps Firefox 100% Free and Open [Sourced] by default. Even better, you can completely disable this stuff in about:config. Why is everyone hating on Mozilla again?? They're doing what they promise.
