      Bug 13252: Do not store data in the app bundle · 42819820
      Kathleen Brade authored and Matthew Finkel's avatar Matthew Finkel committed
      When --enable-tor-browser-data-outside-app-dir is enabled,
      all user data is stored in a directory named
      TorBrowser-Data which is located next to the application directory.
      Display an informative error message if the TorBrowser-Data
      directory cannot be created due to an "access denied" or a
      "read only volume" error.
      On Mac OS, add support for the --invisible command line option which
      is used by the meek-http-helper to avoid showing an icon for the
      helper browser on the dock.

      Bug 14631: Improve profile access error messages. · 2d241330
      Kathleen Brade authored and Matthew Finkel's avatar Matthew Finkel committed
      Instead of always reporting that the profile is locked, display specific
      messages for "access denied" and "read-only file system".
      To allow for localization, get profile-related error strings from Torbutton.
      Use app display name ("Tor Browser") in profile-related error alerts.

      This should eliminate our need to rely on a wrapper script that
      sets /Users/arthur and launches Firefox with -profile.

      Bug 13028: Prevent potential proxy bypass cases. · c01d320f
      Mike Perry authored and Matthew Finkel's avatar Matthew Finkel committed
      It looks like these cases should only be invoked in the NSS command line
      tools, and not the browser, but I decided to patch them anyway because there
      literally is a maze of network function pointers being passed around, and it's
      very hard to tell if some random code might not pass in the proper proxied
      versions of the networking code here by accident.

      Bug 16439: Remove screencasting code · fee70b7a
      Kathleen Brade authored and Matthew Finkel's avatar Matthew Finkel committed
      We avoid including the screencasting code on mobile (it got ripped out
      for desktop in bug 1393582) by simply excluding the related JS modules
      from Tor Browser.

      Bug 12974: Disable NTLM and Negotiate HTTP Auth · 1f58660c
      Mike Perry authored and Matthew Finkel's avatar Matthew Finkel committed
      This is technically an embargoed Mozilla bug, so I probably shouldn't provide
      too many details.
      Suffice to say that NTLM and Negotiate auth are bad for Tor users, and I doubt
      very many (or any of them) actually need it.

      Bug 10760: Integrate TorButton to TorBrowser core · 972c9b60
      Alex Catarineu authored and Matthew Finkel's avatar Matthew Finkel committed
      Because of the non-restartless nature of Torbutton, it required
      a two-stage installation process. On mobile, it was a problem,
      because it was not loading when the user opened the browser for
      the first time.
      Moving it to tor-browser and making it a system extension allows it
      to load when the user opens the browser for first time.
      Additionally, this patch also fixes Bug 27611.

      Bug 17252: Enable session identifiers with FPI
      Session tickets and session identifiers were isolated
      by OriginAttributes, so we can re-enable them by
      allowing the default value (true) of
      The pref "security.enable_tls_session_tickets" is obsolete
      (removed in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/917049)
      Bug 14952: Enable http/2 and AltSvc
      In Firefox, SPDY/HTTP2 now uses Origin Attributes for
      isolation of connections, push streams, origin frames, etc.
      That means we get first-party isolation provided
      "privacy.firstparty.isolate" is true. So in this patch, we
      stop overriding "network.http.spdy.enabled" and
      Alternate Services also use Origin Attributes for isolation.
      So we stop overriding
      "network.http.altsvc.enabled" and "network.http.altsvc.oe"
      as well.
      (All 4 of the abovementioned "network.http.*" prefs adopt
      Firefox 60ESR's default value of true.)
      However, we want to disable HTTP/2 push for now, so we
      set "network.http.spdy.allow-push" to false.
      "network.http.spdy.enabled.http2draft" was removed in Bug 1132357.

      Bug 26146: Spoof HTTP User-Agent header for desktop platforms
      In Tor Browser 8.0, the OS was revealed in both the HTTP User-Agent
      header and to JavaScript code via navigator.userAgent. To avoid
      leaking the OS inside each HTTP request (which many web servers
      log), always use the Windows 7 OS value in the desktop User-Agent
      header. We continue to allow access to the actual OS via JavaScript,
      since doing so improves compatibility with web applications such
      as GitHub and Google Docs.
      Bug 12885: Windows Jump Lists fail for Tor Browser
      Jumplist entries are stored in a binary file in:
      and has a name in the form
      The hex at the front is unique per app, and is ultimately derived from
      something called the 'App User Model ID' (AUMID) via some unknown
      hashing method. The AUMID is provided as a key when programmatically
      creating, updating, and deleting a jumplist. The default behaviour in
      firefox is for the installer to define an AUMID for an app, and save it
      in the registry so that the jumplist data can be removed by the
      However, the Tor Browser does not set this (or any other) regkey during
      installation, so this codepath fails and the app's AUMID is left
      undefined. As a result the app's AUMID ends up being defined by
      windows, but unknowable by Tor Browser. This unknown AUMID is used to
      create and modify the jumplist, but the delete API requires that we
      provide the app's AUMID explicitly. Since we don't know what the AUMID
      is (since the expected regkey where it is normally stored does not
      exist) jumplist deletion will fail and we will leave behind a mostly
      empty customDestinations-ms file. The name of the file is derived from
      the binary path, so an enterprising person could reverse engineer how
      that hex name is calculated, and generate the name for Tor Browser's
      default Desktop installation path to determine whether a person had
      used Tor Browser in the past.
      The 'taskbar.grouping.useprofile' option that is enabled by this patch
      works around this AUMID problem by having firefox.exe create it's own
      AUMID based on the profile path (rather than looking for a regkey). This
      way, if a user goes in and enables and disables jumplist entries, the
      backing store is properly deleted.
      Unfortunately, all windows users currently have this file lurking in
      the above mentioned directory and this patch will not remove it since it
      was created with an unknown AUMID. However, another patch could be
      written which goes to that directory and deletes any item containing the
      'Tor Browser' string.  See bug 28996.

      Bug 1683188 - CrossProcessPaint code shouldn't mess with tab state from the content process. r=mattwoodrow,NeilDeakin, a=jcristau
      There's JS running since we save the active status till we restore it,
      so arbitrary things can happen, including receiving an IPC message from
      the child saying that we're now really active.
      If then we restore the wrong (old) status, stuff gets confused and
      sadness ensues.
      Screenshotting background tabs seems to work without this so it's not
      clear to me why messing with the activeness state was necessary to begin

      Bug 1681610: Use thicker borders when faking rounded rectangles. r=gw, a=jcristau · c801a944
      Jim Blandy authored
      `DisplayListBuilder::PushRoundedRect`, used for unordered list bullets and the
      like, draws rounded rectangles as ordinary rectangles with rounded borders that
      have a radius of half the rectangle. Unfortunately, this leads to tiny white
      dots at the center of the bullet under some magnifications. I haven't diagnosed
      why - perhaps there's something somewhere that snaps borders outward.
      Increasing the thickness of the borders to (an impossible) 60% of the width of
      the rectangle makes the problem go away. If this kludge doesn't work, we could
      add a rectangle covering the center.
