jonas.smedegaard added a comment to T673: firefox-esr - default search engine is not perfect.

jonas.smedegaard lowered the priority of T238: konqueror - mentions Google search on about:home page from Freedom Issue to Normal.
Sat, Jun 12, 04:31 · Restricted Project
jonas.smedegaard edited projects for T238: konqueror - mentions Google search on about:home page, added: Restricted Project; removed Freedom.

This is not a Freedom issue: Promoting a commercial service does not violate the GNU Free Distribution Guidelines.
Instead, it is arguably a privacy issue - i.e. the code does not in itself leak personal data but promotes the use of a service which does.

jonas.smedegaard closed T980: Firefox ESR implements Encrypted Media Extensions (EME) as Resolved.

This issue is considered solved in PureOS.
It is true that the solution used for PureOS is not the ideal, but it is effective: Users cannot accidentally or sloppily make use of the EME implementation included with Firefox ESR as shipped with PureOS, because it requires manually editing plaintext files to enable that functionality.
