Does anyone know what this does in t Thunderbird? Its under Options / Advanced / General / Config Editor and its set to enable obviously. I think I understand how it works in FF but not sure the purpose in TB. I was in there editing the user agent control to block outgoing agent that is no blocked at the server and i see the geo setting. not sure what this does.

Thanks,

Thunderbird is largely based on Firefox code. So my best guess would be geo.enable does exactly the same as in Firefox.
I don't see how this would affect mail. However, it would possibly affect RSS feeds, as Thunderbird pretty much acts like a browser when showing RSS feed articles.

Thanks makes sense I dont see the impact on mail either therefore the question. I tried sending mail to myself to review any changes in the header but I dont understand most of header data anyways to know if it has any effect; IP are already stripped. I turned the geo off anyway. I sort of take the reckless approach with anything that slows a system performance or compromises privacy when in question turn it off until something breaks.
