Comment (by arthuredelstein):

 I don't think Mozilla would necessarily be opposed to having a patch for
 the about:preferences page, assuming the checkbox only appears when
 privacy.resistFingerprinting is enabled.

 On the other hand, perhaps I'm missing some context -- is there a strong
 desire from users to disable letterboxing? It's really quite an important
 part of fingerprinting resistance.

 Also -- the name "letterboxing" is probably not the best. ;)
