thanks.
yes, I've seen the design doc and a link pointing
to "a number of Firefox preference changes".
unfortunately it resolves to something I fail to
grasp, namely:

I don't know what I'm supposed to do w/ this
the links you have provided work fine.
my interest in these settings is to see
potentially "leaky" settings, like safebrowsing

"less than private" regular firefox installation
