 Reporter:  gk                                 |          Owner:  tbb-team

Parent ID:                                     |         Points:
 A commenter on our blog was complaining that we still have
 `media.video_stats.enabled` set to `true`
 There is no need for this fingerprinting vector (a test (borrows from
 Chris Pearce) can be found on: https://people.torproject.org/~gk/misc
 /video-paint-stats.html) and Mozilla made this pref at least with having
 us in mind (see: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=654550 for
 the discussion).
