 > The patch looks okay. Kathy and I tested it with browserleaks.com but
 not with the Session Manager add-on. Just a few small things that you may
 want to fix inside the `shouldLoad()` function:
 > 1. It is inconsistent to not prefix `uriFingerprinting` with `this.`
 (but the code seems to work).

 Oops, that's a remaining part of my first patch idea. :(

 > 2. It might be better to check `this.uriFingerprinting` first since the
 `schemeIs()` calls must take longer to execute than checking a Boolean JS


 > 3. Adding braces wouldn't hurt.


 All those fixed are in commit 84ff007519fa475d36800e979169f961fe0c072e on
 `master`. Backported to `maint-1.9.6` with
 fc00aef1fd552784dfca72dcdbb78e72e2f9932e. Thanks!
