Hi Andreas:

Thanks for reaching to us. I have also received the personal message you
have sent from the form on lduros.net.

It seems like most of the changes required to "blend in" with
fingerprint are easy to do. You mentioned that the EFF has as list of
all the browser fingerprint parameters. We can go through each of them
and figure out what needs to be tweaking inside IceCat/Firefox. The Tor
browser draft document probably has information on this as well.

It has been a long term plan to get this sort of functionality in
IceCat, so I'll get back to you after the weekend with a list of what
can be done.

And also, this feature has been a request and a long term goal of
IceCat, so no need for funding on this. IceCat is an all-volunteer
project, but thanks for offering anyway!

Thank you,

GNU IceCat maintainer/ GNU LibreJS maintainer
