TAILS 1.2: Torbutton in crazy DEBUG mode dumping ALL history


last year
https://mailman.boum.org/pipermail/tail ... 07243.html

Torbutton in crazy DEBUG mode dumping ALL history to ~/.xsession-errors

Some of the truncated entries:

# Torbutton INFO: SSC: Set cacheDomain to
# Torbutton INFO: Torbutton debug output ready
# Torbutton INFO: SSC: Segmenting
# Torbutton INFO: SSC: Parent
# mozIThirdPartyUtil.getFirstPartyURIFromChannel
# Torbutton INFO: SSC: No cache isolation parent
# Torbutton DBUG: onLocationChange

I deleted the file and it wasn't recreated in the Tails 1.2 session,
but this isn't a fix I'm looking for.

Why is Torbutton in DEBUG mode, spewing info about the sites you visit
into amnesia user's .xsession-errors file and where can I turn this
Torbutton DEBUG setting OFF?

Thanks, filed as #8160.

You can redirect Torbutton's debug output to something else (e.g.
the browser's JavaScript console) extensions.torbutton.logmethod in
about:config. Or disable debug output with loglevelwith some pref in
about:config. See https://www.torproject.org/docs/torbutton/en/design/
for the meaning of the values that can be assigned to these prefs.

I pushed a fix. Please review and merge into stable and devel. Anyone up
for it?

Cheers!
