Telemetry and Firefox Experiments (A/B)

I normally have all three data selection options selected in all my FF profiles.

Last few days, I have been troubleshooting, and I looked into my addons manager and saw that link titled Experiments. Lo and behold, I was a participant in the A/B testing. I'm not complaining about this; in the past I actually installed a MoCo extension that signed me up for stuff like this.

My concern is that I want to temporarily opt out. I removed the Experiment listed, and then unchecked telemetry, because that was mentioned in the experiment.

My question: by removing the Experiment, and unchecking telemetry, have I unsubscribed from participating from any further experiments?

Again, I don't have a problem with this--I normally have telemetry checked--its just that I want to reduce all the factors that might be inducing a problem with my browser.

There are some prefs on about:config about the experiments that you can check out.

  • experiments.enabled
  • experiments.activeExperiment

OK, thanks.

Because I'd like to stay on beta but without these experiments, I do have one more question. As long as I keep those two about:config settings set to false, I will not get any of those experiments, correct?

Yes, that should be true.
