#2478 closed change (fixed)

Disable crash reporting

Our upstream merge (#2352) has apparently added a crash reporter, that'll send this data to Mozilla servers. We don't want this for now.

What to change

  1. Ensure the crash reporter is not activated automatically (currently it's opt-out)
  2. Hide or remove the Crash Reporter setting under Settings->Adblock Browser->Data choices.

The solution is a build configuration switch:


ac_add_options --disable-crashreporter

to mozconfig and it's gone.

We can probably add a line to the README, pointing to this important change. Will put up a review for this.

Next step is: creating a follow up issue to investigate if there's another way of disabling this.
