Another approach might be to add

  pref("media.eme.ui.enabled", false);

to data/settings.js in the gnuzilla repository.  It seems to me
preferable for the DRM Content setting to be completely hidden, if
possible.  What do you think?

I would guess so, although I'd prefer not to embed hardcoded URLs into
the code.

Anyway, thanks very much for your work on this, Antonio, and for
maintaining the IceCat package in Fedora.
