 Mozilla landed a network identification ID feature in Firefox 49
 (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1240932). We probably don't
 want that. At least we should investigate it closer and maybe don't let an
 ID get computed at least when Telemetry is disabled.

 Note: this has probably consequences for (Linux) sandboxing at least as it
 needs access to /proc/net/arp.
