The Tor Browser Bundles have been updated to Firefox 9.0.1. Originally they were updated to Firefox 9 and both changelogs are listed below.
Tor Browser Bundle (2.2.35-3)
- Update Firefox to 9.0.1
Tor Browser Bundle (2.2.35-2)
- Update Firefox to 9.0
- Update Torbutton to 18.104.22.168
- Update Noscript to 2.2.4
- New Firefox patches
- Provide client values only to CSS Media Queries and disable several Mozilla extensions that seem fingerprintable
i think this depends on choosing the most common headers (fingerprinting) versus early adoption of progressive concept.
but afaik, DNT has no enforcement, and abusers do not obey when disobeying incurs neither carrot nor stick. So Do Not Track is effectively only pr fluff.
fingerprinting is a poor argument: Tor users already stick out because exit node IPs are public and no one else is still on Firefox 5.0. Look at the adoption curve, the most common user agent will always the latest stable followed by the long term release (currently 3.6 soon to be version 10).
DNT is not just fluff. Honest players (and those that are so big that they are kept honest by their competitors, NGOs and govs) will respect it sooner or later. Sooner if more people use it. Only a reason to enable it by default.
1. NGOs often operate more openbooks, but NGOs aren't significant on the net.
2. By shame-able government, you mean Dick Cheney's government? Ayatollah Khomeini's? Hugo Chavez's? Mugabe's?
3. To profit-making decision-makers, DNT was never more than a one-time laugh. They knew better than to even TRY using DNT for false marketing.
Exhibit 1: f@cebook
As long as many fools feed f@cebook with data, f@cebook will be a juggernaut.
Either government or business (DNT misuse or non-use) would quickly smother NGOs faithful use. So quickly, that both government and business would smother NGOs imperceptibly faster.
Tor could enable DNT only if FF enables by default, but as you write, Tor users already stick out... (from other firefox visitors)
And DNT is just cruft that will disappear 'quietly' from mozilla code within a few years.
So, Tor should always disable DNT, to prevent DNT becoming a tell tale between different tbb versions when DNT disappears.
