P3P Privacy Google

Posted

I am reading about Google bypassing P3P Privacy Protection features in both IE and Safari here http://blogs.msdn.com/b/ie/archive/2012/02/20/google-bypassing-user-privacy-settings.aspx

What is Firefox doing to protect us from all that is evil at Google ?

I was trying to search for P3P Privacy Google but could not find anything at mozilla.org.

Google is claiming they did nothing wrong with Apple, but now MS is onto them also.

I created this dummy account just to post a possible answer: According to some bug reports, Mozilla (Firefox?) doesn't support P3P, so we should be safe: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=366611 https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=383994
