If you go to browserleaks.com/firefox/, you'll see that resource:// is leaked for the locale and greprefs.js. Waterfox Classic does not leak this info.

Is the following backported?

No it is not in. Stumbled over it previously but this probably breaks add-ons so it will not go into 2.53.x

If you're interested in how Waterfox patched that up, here's their Github issue:

They "fixed" it by backporting the Bug.

They also backported this which breaks a ton of classic add-ons:

For some reason they are pretty unconcered about this. We are not.

Mostly I am with Tobin and Moonchild with this one. And this does not happen frequently :)

We could rename the prefs file but it would be pointless. Tracker code could just adjust for the new name.

Gotcha. Thanks for the rationale behind your reasoning, frg.

I found a workaround using a modified version of No Resource URI Leak over at the ghacks.js Github repo: https://github.com/ghacksuserjs/ghacks- ... issues/191

This works on SeaMonkey 2.53.1.
