I think you're right Jonas. I'll set up a tracker per add-on.

This is T202 - merging into this newer one (instead of opposite) because this one had more details - except for the exact "error message" of the wording of the button when (mis)detected as not being _exactly_ Firefox.

jonas.smedegaard added a comment to T644: PureOS is not privacy-protecting enough by default.

I can suggest to create an issue for each addon, both to track their relationsips (e.g. if an addon like TOS;DR relates to _both_ privacy and freedom), and to track their resolution (i.e. packaging in Debian).

Sun, Dec 9, 2:56 PM
jonas.smedegaard added a comment to T644: PureOS is not privacy-protecting enough by default.

I suspect (but haven't looked closed) that some of the listed addons more appropriately belong in a new separate issue "PureOS is not freedom-governing enough by default".

Thanks @mladen.pejakovic that does, sort of, solve the issue. However @jeremiah.foster , we're shipping a browser with menu items that go nowhere when users try to ad addons... how could they possibly know to go into the browser registry about:config ?

mak closed T379: Create pureos-disk-encryption service as "Resolved".

The helper script has now been split out into a new dbus-activated daemon. It's not the quality thing that I want yet, as the code needs some refactoring to work properly in an async way and the interface is quite crude, but it's good enough for a start.

jeremiah.foster added a comment to T595: PureBrowser detected as incompatible with Firefox add-on store.

I have two perspectives, one on the content and one on work flow. As far as content is concerned I think it is addressed by folks who know the issues better than I, so I'm not going to wade in on that. As far as work flow is concerned I defer to Jonas who has to use the tool to be efficient, so he gets to decide how the work is broken down.

It probably makes sense to keep this open until the package shows up in PureOS (having it in Debian is nice, but not sufficient). Once it makes its way into PureOS then sure, close the ticket.

I am aware of this for a long time, it can only properly be fixed by making a proper service out of this tool, which I have not had the time to do yet due to piles upon piles of other critical tasks.
I might actually implement the service soon though, in the process of fixing swap-related boot issues.
