We did not import commit
7febc36b4c770dec084def2696bd0f956ef9442f ("Add security enhancements suggested by Jesse Ruderman.") into our Iceweasel 24.5.0esr build since they hadn't been tested much in the wild at the time of building and so may introduce subtle regressions, which would be a shame for the Tails 1.0 release. This should be re-evaluated in time for Tails 1.1.
This change is already live in Tor Browser 3.6-beta-2, and will be in the stable 3.5.5 release AFAICT, so we should ask Mike Perry or the other TBB people how it all went.

- Type of work changed from Research to Wait
Let's wait for the TBB team's plans on https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/9387.
#5 Updated by anonym about 5 years ago
It's gonna be in TBB 3.6.2, although it was moved from its dedicated commit into the general "Tor Browser's Firefox preference overrides" one. I say we keep these settings for now then, and ship them in Tails 1.0.1. Perhaps we should still keep this ticket around with the
Tails_1.1 milestone so we track the progress on this front a bit more, since there's still no final decision really on the upstream ticket.
#8 Updated by intrigeri about 5 years ago
- Status changed from Confirmed to Resolved
We've included these changes in Tails 1.0.1, and received very little complains, so I say we have no reason to deviate from the Tor Browser's settings here. If they decide to keep it, we'll keep it. If they drop it, we'll drop it as well.

The Tor Browser team is revisiting this decision: https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/12653
