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).

jonas.smedegaard added a comment to T347: Make it easy to start Tor Browser Bundle.

Is it in your opinion more important to fix immediately (i.e. no time to wait for PureOS, we must hand over the keys to the castle to upstream) bugs in Tor Browser, or do you find it equally important that we (as they become available) enable mechanisms for the Linux developers and GNOME developers and any other upstreams to address 0-days in their code?

Oct 12 2018, 12:39 PM · Restricted Project
jonas.smedegaard added a comment to T347: Make it easy to start Tor Browser Bundle.

Agreed, torbrowser-launcher has been and still is in debian (just not main).
However, since that package bypasses APT, Debian has effectively passed on the maintenance of Tor Browser itself (not the bypassing script, but that it less relevant) to upstream, so how responsive the Debian security team has been regarding torbrowser-lanucher is irrelevant to 0-days of Tor Browser itself.
