    I had gone through this article and others attempting to limit the outbound connections made by firefox. It looks like most of what I really wanted could have been done more easily based on the instructions on Enterprise Deployment . I think it would be worthwhile to have a link near the top directing technical people to that page.

    Thanks for the comment, but you probably are not very representative of the target audience of these articles: The ordinary possibly naive or novice end user.

    We are trying to offer an explanation for those that need it, possibly only for occasional troubleshooting. We are trying to offer methods where possible that are menu based and from the GUI.

    Developers and Enterprise users are more likely to look towards MDN or EWG for answers,

    Why should mozilla support only be for the naive or novice? I only suggest a link to the other article, because the usability of these instructions is not excellent. It took me nearly 30 minutes to do all this, copy-and-pasting a few text files is much easier, even for novices. There is no single set of things to change on the page, it is all broken up, and it is still incomplete. If I wanted to develop something for firefox, I would use mdn. If I wanted to deploy in an enterprise, I would go to EWG. But in this case, I don't want to do either of those things. I just want to use firefox on my own personal laptop, and I don't want it phoning home to mozilla every time I click. The truth is, novices may not want this to happen either, and this page really doesn't make it easy for them to address that.
