Let's say this gets implemented without the user having control over it at some point. Will you guys put in a useflag to opt it out during compile time?

Gentoo could add that, but it wouldn't accomplish much (and it can be turned on/off without a recompile by putting a mozilla.cfg file in the correct place).

Users of PiHole and other DNS-based adblocking solutions to blanket protect an entire LAN are going to be left high and dry.

I find it disturbing that we need to protect ourselves against Mozilla now.

Soon Mozilla will work like Opera Mobile way back when?

We needed to anyway, after they quietly slipped adware in through a backdoor last year, and are now planning on using it to install a sponsored links sidebar.

Make sure the about:studies page says it's disabled.
