Essentially no one respects DNT, and the browser explicitly telling every website it doesn't want to be tracked makes you more likely to actually be tracked [citation needed]. Besides, IceCat already comes preconfigured with an extension that blocks trackers, so even if DNT worked, there would be no point in enabling it because SpyBlock already does the necessary work anyway.

Hello everyone,

I was wondering what was the policy about changing the default configuration of IceCat?

There are 2 values that I feel should be set by default in future releases.

1. privacy.donottrackheader.enabled = true

And to deal with sites that do not respect the 'do not track' request, tracking protection should be enabled. It will block tracking scripts client side.

2. privacy.trackingprotection.enabled = true
