Comment (by Thorin):

 dom.netinfo.enabled=false returns "unknown" but RFP returns "undefined"

 You need to decide what you want to enforce as your TBB fingerprint. RFP
 "clashes" with a lot of other prefs you have flipped in the past. You'll
 have to evaluate each one on it's own in order to determine if the pref or
 RFP wins out. Or even which one gives better protection (eg
 media.video_stats.enabled=false disables the API, but RFP returns
 dynamically spoofed values .. so which do you want? which is less entropy
 or fits your threat model)
