Comment (by pospeselr):

 Replying to [comment:1 gk]:
 > Well, flipping that preference has been an experiment. And I am not
 convinced yet that the usability impact was worth it. Thus, I wonder if we
 should just abandon this "fix" idea and try to look again in a new ticket
 at dealing with the original linkability concern? Maybe ESR60 makes it
 easier now to isolate those range requests properly? What do you think?

 Yeah I'm inclined to agree.  For the time being, I'm investigating whether
 we can enable FPI for these range requests .
