Disable Data Reporting

Posted

I've disabled Data Reporting in Options/Advanced and yet there are some datareporting entries in my prefs.js file.

How do I completely disable this feature?

Thank you.

I don't have those, not sure why not. Have you tried deleting them (after closing Firefox)? Do they come back?

Did you check the value of datareporting.policy.dataSubmissionEnabled (default = true) on the about:config page?

edit: This doesn't seem to make any difference in creating datareporting prefs.
I assume that you can only disable the submission and not collecting data.

It just occurred to me that this might be a feature unique to beta/aurora versions of Firefox.
